In a positive effort to keep our staff, community, and animals safe and healthy, The Humane Society Serving Crawford County is making the following changes effective Friday March 20th, 2020:
Beginning March 20th, we are reducing our regular hours of operation. The shelter will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 12pm to 5pm and Saturday 12pm to 4pm. As always, we will be available by phone, email, or Facebook Messenger, to answer your concerns and questions regarding animal cruelty, surrenders, adoptions, and reclaims. We don’t feel, at this time, it is in our community’s best interest to close but we will be evaluating the ongoing development of current issues and making decisions accordingly.
With that being said, we are beyond grateful to our community, who even during these trying times, are asking about ways to help with both monetary and supply donations. We encourage you to consider using the link to PayPal on our website, the postal service, or online shopping services like Amazon for your donations so as not to increase your exposure to the virus by shopping and delivering donations in person. We are so appreciative of those of you who bring us towels and bedding, but at this time we would ask that you find other uses for them as we cannot take them. All of our amazing volunteers are being asked to take a break from visiting for the next several weeks because we want you all safe and healthy. We can’t thank you enough for the dedication you have toward the pets at the shelter, but your welfare is very important and we look forward to seeing you as soon these restrictions are lifted.
These changes are temporary, and they are not meant to fuel any kind of panic. We are simply trying to respond to the recommendations that are being made by Federal, State, and local authorities to reduce the spread of this virus. Our first and highest priority is to care for the animals that our community has entrusted to us and to serve the amazing community we have been a part of for over 45 years. Care of the pets at the shelter will remain at the highest level, as it has been. We encourage you to call, email, or Facebook message us with your questions and concerns.
We are hopeful that these uncertain times will be part of our history very soon. Take care of each other and make each day your best so far!
Keeping with the Federal and State recommendations for >50 at mass gatherings, the Humane Society Bingo Committee has had to make some changes to our weekly Bingo schedule. There will be no bingo game on March 18th or March 25th at Pickwick Place in Bucyrus. The Fab Friday game, previously scheduled for April 3rd, will be rescheduled to June 12, 2020 at Pickwick Place. The tickets won or purchased for the April 3rd game will be honored at the rescheduled game on June 12, 2020
We are hoping to be able to resume our weekly game on April 1, 2020. Since the restrictions and recommendations are fluid please watch our Facebook page and our website for the latest on these and other Humane Society changes. If you have questions regarding these developments please call the Humane Society during our normal business hours. Our foremost thoughts are to keep all our supporters safe. We ask that you understand these required changes and come play Bingo with us as soon as we feel we can provide a safe, healthy, entertaining, environment for all!Fab Friday
