SWCHS is currently operating BY APPOINTMENT ONLY for animal meet and greets, adoptions, viewing of animals, and volunteering! Donation drop offs only can be done during any open business hours. 

KITTEN SEASON HAS BEGUN!

During kitten season shelters, rescues, and humane societies everywhere experience high numbers of feline intakes. Capacity For Care means that we stay within a certain threshold of the amount of pets in our care in order to meet the needs of every animal already admitted to our shelter. Facilities put a pause on taking more animals in to prevent flooding the kennel space because this diminishes the quality of care. As of right now, SWCHS is at capacity for felines. An informational graph has been provided to aid in the direct return of stray cats. For any feline surrenders, we kindly ask to please call during main business hours so staff can gather information, add you to a waitlist, and/or provide you with other potential rehoming information.
