Notice:

The threat of Coronavirus (#COVID-19) has generated understandable concerns in our community. The health, safety, and wellbeing of SVAS community partners, staff, volunteers and all of the animals in our care is our top priority.

SVAS is taking the necessary steps to do what we can today to protect against the spread of COVID-19, so that we can prepare for what the animals and people in our community may need from us in the coming weeks. Our operation is dependent on a limited number of staff and volunteers, who care for the SVAS animals on a daily basis. In order to keep the staff and public safe SVAS will be implementing the following changes:

ADOPTIONS/INTAKES: Our shelter is now open to the public by appointment only for adoption and intake by emailing lauren@svaspets.com or calling (701)852-6133.

VOLUNTEERS: We are still in need of volunteer support. Moving forward all volunteers will be by appointment only and should continue to sign up for shifts by going to https://www.volgistics.com/ex2/vicnet.dll/?from=452146  We will only have 2 volunteers in a scheduled time period, based on the CDC recommendations to practice social distancing.

DONATIONS: To limit public exposure, we will temporarily stop accepting donations of towels, blankets, beds, toys—etc. During this time, we will still gratefully accept donations of food as we anticipate a greater need, not only for our animals, but for our community pet food bank.

Please consider assisting our shelter through a preferred online monetary donation at https://svaspets.com/donate/, through Facebook or gifts through our Amazon Wish List: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2KE6FGKZKR3K3/?ref_=lol_ov_le

Please know that despite these measures, we are continuing to care for the animals and remain ready and able to be their safety net. Thank you for understanding.
