The COVID pandemic has also changed things for our beloved pets and for the homeless animals in our community. Northshore Humane Society quickly adapted, keeping the rescue center and community veterinary clinic open, allowing us to continue to save the lives of those in need.
Rescue Center: to manage the amount of people on the NHS campus at one time, our rescue center is open by appointment. Adoption and foster numbers have increased and we are continuing to rescue and adopt animals in need.
Community Veterinary Clinic: our community clinic has turned to curbside service. People remain in the safety of their cars through the entire experience and their animals still receive the same quality of care they have come to expect.
Fundraisers & Programs: due to the outbreak, two large fundraisers, Woofstock and LarryFest, were canceled as well as our summer camp program. Additionally, fundraisers scheduled for the remainder of the year may also be affected. Individual donor support is more important than ever as we try to recover the necessary funds lost by the absence of these events.
Through this time, the support of our community has never wavered. People continue to choose our clinic for their pets’ veterinary care, families are fostering and adopting while working from home, and individual donors continue to support our cause. We will continue to serve those in need for as long as the community will allow us!
