October 21, 2020 UPDATE in regards to COVID-19

Because we care about our community and want to help stop the spread of the virus, protecting our community, staff, guests and volunteers... we are taking steps as a precaution due to the COVID-19 Risk dial for the area being at "High." Stronger social distancing restrictions will be in place, meaning one person or family unit at a time will be allowed in the facility and we will be going by appointments during our normally regular business hours. An application for adoption is available on our website at www.mccookhumanesociety.com under the tab dog or cat, please indicate who you are interested in adopting. Our front door will be locked during our otherwise normal open hours, you may knock and if we do not have an otherwise scheduled appointment, or someone else in the facility, you will be able to come in and view our pets available for adoption.
Masks are mandatory. We ask that you do not come into the facility if you have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive with COVID-19, or if you have traveled to a known high risk area within the last 14 days, if you are at high risk, or if you are showing any symptoms of the virus. We appreciate your continuing support and understanding during these unusual times and wish everyone a happy, enjoyable and safe experience while visiting our facility.

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!
