June 4, 2020 UPDATE in regards to COVID-19

  • We here at the McCook Humane Society have been closely monitoring this situation and the impact it is having in our community. We are operating under a Limited Access Policy. Our priority has always been the safety of our staff, volunteers and guests, while still maintaining our mission in finding permanent homes for our temporarily homeless friends and reuniting the lost with their families.
  • Weather permitting, we are still planning on having our June Nail Day Event (Saturday, June 13th, from 1pm until 3pm). Please watch our Facebook page and here for more updates. This will be a fun outside event. Stay tuned for more details!
  • At this present time we will still be handling adoptions and surrenders on an appointment only basis, one family or person at a time. For adoptions, please fill out the adoption application online on our website. You will be contacted in the order in which the applications are received, and an appointment will be made during our otherwise normal business hours. You will be asked a series of health/COVID-19 related questions to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff.
  • We truly appreciate your considerate patience during this unusual time, and thank you for your continuing support. Please call us with any concerns or questions. By continuing to show kindness, and remaining calm, we will all get through this.

Each month we honor an employee or a volunteer for their hard work and dedication. They receive a certificate of appreciation and a Walmart Gift card made possible by a donation from Sharleen Riemenschneider of Edward Jones! This month, we took the advice of a good majority of the folks and used it for dog/cat food. Again, it was another situation where it's just not possible to pick just one. May was another challenging month, while operating under a Limited Access Policy, volunteering seemed to be challenging right? Nope. This amazing community and the folks that support the shelter didn't bat an eye. We were so uplifted by the folks that reached out and helped us by whatever means that they could. Some went so far out of their way, some even had much needed supplies delivered to us from out of the area. It was amazing. It literally kept us going. During the challenging and yes, sometimes very overwhelming times that we all face, we realize just how much our community supports us and we truly appreciate you all. Thank you to ALL OF YOU. To every single one of you who support us. You are the McCook Humane Society's "Volunteer of the Month" for MAY 2020! We appreciate each and every one of these wonderful people. We can't take care of our temporarily homeless furry friends without our awesome employees and volunteers!
