During this turbulent time, we are doing our part to protect our employees, volunteers and community
while at the same time continuing our never-ending important work. We are still open to take in wildlife in
need (providing essential services for public health and safety) 8am – 5pm, 7 days a week.
In order to follow the CDC guidelines and those of our elected and public health officials we are taking
numerous steps in the interest of minimizing the spread of the novel coronavirus.
We have suspended our volunteer program so that they may stay home. We are relying on a skeleton
crew of paid staff to care for the animals.
To practice social distancing, we are asking public rescuers to follow these instructions upon arrival at our
wildlife intake center:
1. Ring the doorbell to the left of the entrance door.
2. One of our staff will meet you at the door and allow you to come in (ONLY ONE PERSON IS
ALLOWED INSIDE AT A TIME) – please do not come in if you are sick with any symptoms of
cold, flu or coronavirus
3. Once inside we will ask you for the minimum information (verbally) required for us to fill out the
appropriate intake form
4. We will take the animal from you and return your box/crate to you if necessary.
5. If it is afterhours, please do NOT come to the intake center and leave any animal by the door.
This is dangerous, and illegal. If after hours please keep the animal warm, dark and quiet – away
from children and pets until it can be brought in during our operational hours the following day.
These guidelines will be adjusted as conditions dictate. We appreciate your patience as we all work
together to get through these challenging times. Since our volunteers cannot help us at this time, your
donations are more urgently needed than ever before.
