NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Niagara County SPCA is making moves to protect its animals, staffers and visitors as cases of COVID-19 increase in Western New York. On Monday it announced the facility is moving to curbside adoptions.
"For the past several weeks we have taken every safety measure possible to protect those who work in the shelter as well as adopters in order to slow the spread of the virus. That's why we are now moving to curbside adoptions to further limit the amount of people who come into the shelter. Adopters will be able to meet their pet of choice outside and all paperwork will be handled over the phone prior to adoption," said Tim Brennan, Executive Director of Niagara County SPCA.
How will the curbside adoption process work? Adopters will call to make an appointment to meet a specific animal and provide all necessary information to be pre-approved for adoption. There will be no viewing of animals in their kennels. A staff member or volunteer will bring the dog outside to meet you and your family. If you are meeting a cat, that meet and greet will take place in a private room inside the shelter.
If interested in adopting, please call 716-731-4368 to schedule an appointment for a specific animal.
