from our SHS family to yours | 3.20.20

Hello Community,

As our team continues to monitor developments regarding COVID-19, we are committed to keeping the community we serve and our staff healthy, while ensuring the welfare and well-being of all the animals in our care. However, your support is necessary more than ever now. (Hyperlink to donate page),

In accordance with the statewide measure to limit social interactions to combat the spread of COVID-19, the shelter and our Everyday Adoption Center at PetSmart Northpointe will be by appointment only. To continue to find furever homes for our animals, we will be offering limited appointments for potential adopters, animal surrenders and for families seeking assistance for free dog/cat food through our pet food bank. We will also continue to provide euthanasia and cremation services by appointment only. To make an appointment, please contact or at 509-467-5235 ext 215. To schedule an adoption appointment for animals at their Everyday Adoption Center at PetSmart Northpointe (located off Newport Hwy), please call 509-466-4566 ext 5. Our modified services will remain in effect until further notice.

In addition, our veterinary clinic will continue to provide care to the animals of the Spokane community with spay/neuter appointments and a limited vaccination clinic.

As a friendly reminder, please take precautions and refrain from visiting the shelter and clinic if you are exhibiting any symptoms or have had symptoms recently, our staff will do the same.

To view our adoptable furry friends or to support them by donating, please visit our website at We understand that some of our supporters are experiencing uncertainty in their lives and appreciate any help you can provide. We need you now more than ever, and the work we do is only possible because of you.

We truly appreciate your continued support and any donation you can provide to our furry friends. We will get through these trying times together as a community!
Your SHS Family
