      COVID-19 Statement Humane Society of Young County

In an effort to keep the community and our staff as safe as possible during this novel Corona Virus pandemic and following the recommendations of the CDC, our Young County and City of Graham Community Leaders, the Humane Society of Young County will be implementing the following plan as of Friday, March 27, 2020:

 

-We have closed our intake of animals temporarily. While many cities are sheltering in place our adoptions and rescue partners will slow or stop altogether for this time. Both our transport programs have halted transports. We do not want this to result in euthanasia due to over crowding.

 

-People wishing to surrender their pets are asked to hold on to them through this pandemic as we have closed intake so that staff can manage what is already in-house. If there is anything we can do to help you hold onto your pets we will be happy to do what we can.

 

-People who find stray pets are asked to snap a picture and share to the Graham Texas Animal Control Facebook page and other social media pages to help owners reconnect. These may also be shared on the Graham Humane Society of Young County Facebook page. You should also call in lost and found animal descriptions to the Humane Society of Young County and we will keep a record and can let you know if anything has been brought in by Animal Control that matches your description.

 

-If you are looking to adopt a new family member we appreciate that, and ask you to go to our webpage www.humanesociety-yc.org or look us up on Petfinder.com  

All of our pets up for adoption are listed with photos and information. Our application is also available on these sites. Applications can be emailed grahamhsyc17@yahoo.com or faxed (940)-521-0792 to us for review. We will do our best to monitor emails and will accommodate adoptions with approved applications as we are able. Understand the process may be slow and we may ask that you stay in the parking lot to help limit exposure to you as well as our staff.

 

During this time our staff will continue to care for the dogs and cats in our shelter. We will continue to accommodate adoptions as long as we are able and will continue to reach out to and work with our rescue partners to save more pets.

 

As of right now we still have our PETS Clinic scheduled for spay & neuter by appointment and our walk in clinic from 10-2:00 on April 1 and April 15. Precautions will be taken for the safety of our clients and our staff by limiting the number of people inside the facility and by coming to your vehicle for care as needed. Should these dates change we will let you know as soon as we hear.

 

Don’t forget to support us as you are able. There are several easy ways to support us without even having to come out! We have an Amazon wish list and items can be sent directly to us. Donations for dog and cat food can be made at www.r-pal.org just designate Humane Society of Young County as the beneficiary. You can also make monetary donations from our webpage.

 

We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause, but everyone’s safety is our first concern. We appreciate your patience in these stressful times. Just remember: stay calm, social distance, wash your hands, and hug your dogs and cats.

 

Thank you for your continued support,                                    

Shelby Brogdon, Director

Please research and plan before you bring home a new family member. Always spay and neuter to reduce the number of unwanted pets in the community.

The Humane Society of Young County has been helping stray and unwanted animals of Young County, Texas, since 1979. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and rely on donations to keep our doors open. We are dedicated to the welfare of all animals. We are strong advocates of spaying and neutering all pets to reduce the overpopulation problems that we now face. There will never be enough homes available for all the dogs and cats being born today--we cannot adopt or rescue our way out. The only answer to this problem is through spay and neuter. We serve all of Young County and several surrounding counties. We are also the reclaim center for Graham Animal Control. We regularly network with rescues to help find homes for our animals.
