The Humane Society was planning to reopen on Thursday, but shelter director Colleen Morrice said it could take longer.

“I am no longer positive on Thursday. I will probably postpone it until next week. We won’t be operating at the front of the shelter at all, it would be through the back door, so hopefully next week, but I’ll keep everyone posted.

The refuge accepts monetary donations and gift cards.

“We could use a lot of donations. We have lost all of our food and litter so the best thing right now is not to buy them, but to donate money so that we can buy them as and when we need them. ”

When the flooding was first discovered by workers on Saturday morning, they asked for help on social media. In less than 30 minutes, 20 people showed up to help us.

“Thanks to everyone who came by, it was so great to have so many community members come and welcome cats. I never saw many of them or heard their names, so I am very grateful that they came to the shelter.

While the shelter is closed, dog adoption possibilities will be limited. Staff will be able to meet those who wish to adopt a dog outside. There will be no adoptions available for cats until the establishment reopens.
