Join Our Emergency Community Foster Network

Mountain Humane would like to coordinate a community foster network in the case of hospitalized individuals without anyone to care for their pets.
Please email [email protected] if you would like to be included in this network.
 
Pets are not carriers of the virus and we feel it would be safe to do this, providing animals are bathed with soap and water before being moved between households. This will ensure there is no virus present on their coats as surface contamination would be the concern.
 
This would be a worst-case scenario as most folks will have family members or friends who could care for their pets when hospitalized, but if needed a foster network could be a valuable resource for our community.
