The Animal Refuge Center is closed to the public until further notice. We aren’t open for adoptions or surrenders at this time. Feel free to call us for advice and keep an eye on our adoptable pets at Pets For Adoption. We will let you know as soon we open for business again. We’re sorry for any inconvenience. Everyone out there stay healthy and safe.
Amid all the fears surrounding the Covid-19 virus pandemic, many businesses are feeling overwhelmed–if they are retailers or food supply chains–or fearful of what will happen to their businesses if they have to close their doors to the public. With 1 in 4 Americans forced to stay home to avoid spreading the Coronavirus, anxiety and fear are the new normal. With families sheltering in place at home, it’s also important to keep all of us occupied, calm and relaxed. In light of all the changes in how we are able to do business and take care of our day to day activities, it is time now to leverage our affiliate partners in ways we never had to before.
Our shelter manager, Penny Edwards, is irreplaceable. And yet, she is on the front lines every day, having to go out and shop supplies for ARC and her own family, putting herself at risk. And she’s tired, too. We have to help.
Many friends in our community ask if we need pet food and supplies. Yes! The supplies we use regularly: Dog and cat food, dog and cat treats (Canned & Dry), Odo-Ban, Bleach (disinfecting, not scented), chicken feed, pig feed, goat feed, rubbing alcohol.
