Dear friends -
Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, our concern is keeping our staff and volunteers safe as well as being good community partners. Therefore, effective immediately MHS will operate by appointment only for approved adopters. If you have already been approved, please call us to schedule an appointment. New applicants will be called when they are approved and offered an appointment. At this time we will not be adopting animals to out of state applicants. We urge anyone who is experiencing any level of illness in their household to cancel their appointment.
Our fund raising team is currently working to rearrange as many of our upcoming events as possible. Stay tuned for more details.
Rest assured our animals will be well cared for by our dedicated team during this time. Thank you as always for your ongoing support!
