An Update About HSSC's Response to COVID-19
18th March 2020
As you know, the news is changing rapidly, and we are committed to protecting our adopters, guests, volunteers, and staff while continuing to serve the animals of Summit County who depend on us. Currently, we are OPEN for volunteers and adoptions. We ask that if you or someone in your household is ill, do not visit the shelter. We are also limiting visits to our shelter only to those who are seriously considering adoption at this time. Please read on for ways you can help:
- ADOPT: In case, at a future date, we are required to close to the public, we need to find homes for as many of our adoptable animals as possible now. Please view our adoptable animals online by clicking here. With application approval, we are reducing prices to encourage adoptions (discount ends May 31): Adult dogs are now $50 || Adult cats are now $10
- FOSTER: If you are interested in fostering a dog or cat, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you would like to be a dog or cat foster. We will respond by sending you an application to gather more information. Fostering is providing temporary care for an animal in your own home, supplies provided by HSSC.
- INTAKE: We are currently limiting our intake strictly to those animals from Summit County that are sick or injured, or victims of abuse or neglect. Please call our Humane Officers at (330) 405-0620. We will continue to be a resource for all pets in need. If you find a healthy animal and are able to care for it, please call us for information and advice at 330-487-0333 ext. 226. We thank you for being our eyes, ears, and a compassionate refuge for animals in need.
- DONATE: We are not the kind of organization that can turn off the lights and lock the door when disaster strikes, and we need your support now more than ever. PLEASE consider making a donation today by clicking here.
All the animals at the Humane Society of Summit County are SAFE. While our services might shift during this uncertain time, please know that we will continue to provide food, shelter, and comfort for the animals entrusted to our care no matter what.
