In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Danville Area Humane Society has made revisions to its procedures. The center will remain open-admission and will not decline to accept any animal. The front door will be locked, but an animal needs to be released, everyone is asked to ring the bell and an employee will help you.
Beginning on Friday, March 27th, the following changes will go into effect:
1. More pictures of our adoptable animals will be posted to the Humane Society Facebook page and as many as possible will be posted online at dahsinc.com.
2. For those interested in adopting an animal, e-mail the Humane Society at firstname.lastname@example.org and request to recieve an adoption questionnaire. A time to visit the animal at the shelter will be arranged, with no more than two people allowed. Normal adoption guidelines will apply.
3. People may call 799-0843 to make an appointment to visit the shelter and choose an animal before considering adoption. For protection of visitors and the shelter staff, visitors are asked to bring no more than two people to the appointment.
4. Through the end of April, the Humane Society will not sell county dog tags in an effort to decrease traffic to the office.
5. Spay/neuter rebate certificates will still be available for both City of Danville and Pittsylvania County residents. Certificates may be picked up at least the day before animals are taken to the veterinary clinic for surgery. All current guidelines apply. To shorten the time in the office, patrons should call 799-0843 and give the information prior to arrival. Upon arrival at the shelter, call the office and someone will bring the certificate to the front door.
6. Safekeeping services for pets at risk because of domestic violence or evictions will continue at no cost.
The Humane Society is grateful for the continued support of the community. As always, donations of any kind are appreciated, dog or cat dry or canned food, as well as food for rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, hamsters, and gerbils.
