Updated Covid 19 Virus Notice from Humane Society Yukon: Shelter Closing to the Public – Adoptions Available by Appointment Only
In response to the spread of Covid-19, the Humane Society’s Mae Bachur shelter will be closing to the public until further notice. The health and welfare of our animals, clients, and staff continue to be our top priorities. During the closure, we will continue taking additional measures to ensure our facility is cleaned and sanitized even more often than it currently is.
Members of the public will be required to call ahead for an appointment before you come into the shelter. We will arrange to bring dogs out of the shelter to meet you in order to minimize the risk of spreading infections. One person at a time will be allowed into the Cat Room to meet the cats. Please call the shelter at 867-633-6019 to arrange an appointment.
We ask that you continue to practice social distancing while at the shelter.
We also ask that children under the age of 19 be accompanied by their parents while meeting dogs and cats for potential adoptions. In addition, we ask that you keep the number of people accompanying you while visiting animals to a bare minimum.
At this time there is no evidence that pets can be a source of infection to other animals or to humans. www.wormsandgermsblog.com has great, up to date, information on COVID-19 and animals.
We would like to remind you if you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, please do not visit the shelter, and seek medical attention immediately.
We thank you all for your understanding and patience during this time.
For more information, please call the Humane Society at 867-633-6019, or visit our website at www.humanesocietyyukon.ca to view the cats and dogs looking for a forever home.
