Thank you for your continued patience as we work through a major plumbing repair. This repair was crucial to the continued operations and care of the animals at the shelter.

We anticipate returning to full services on Wednesday, March 29th.  However, please call us or check our website ( before visiting the shelter to make sure the construction has been completed.

The Joint Animal Services lobby will be closed through March 28th while they are finishing the repair and laying concrete. Staff will be available by email ( and voicemail (360-352-2510) during normal operating hours Tue-Fri 9:30-5:30 and Sat 9:30-4. If you call the shelter, please leave a message and the staff will return your call.

We will have modified services for the week:

  • Closed for adoptions
  • Closed for owner surrenders
  • No stray drop-off; however, staff will be available to pick up confined strays

All other services will continue to be provided as normal:

  • Humane law enforcement calls and complaints

Thank you for your understanding and patience in this matter.
