Effective Wednesday, June 4, both shelters will be open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Both shelters will be closed Sunday and Monday. Pet adoptions stop one-half hour before closing on each day.
Spring has sprung, and with it comes “kitten season”, that inevitable time of year when un-spayed cats produce an overabundance of babies. Please visit one of our two shelters and adopt a cat today. If you are unable to keep a feline permanently, consider becoming a foster family.
Keep the memory of the loss of a beloved pet alive with the purchase of a brick paver at the tax-deductible cost of $100 per brick. The pavers are also a wonderful way to honor a much-loved living animal or human, or to memorialize a beloved person whose life impacted your own.
If you are at least 18 years old, have a little free time and a lot of love to spare, you may just be the perfect puppy or dog foster person the Humane Society of St. Lucie County is seeking.
The volunteer opportunities are plentiful. You can make your own hours and even choose your location. The HSSLC’s cats and dogs awaiting adoption can be found in Petco of St. Lucie West seven days a week and at PetSmart in Tradition on weekends, and volunteers are needed to transport the animals from our Fort Pierce shelter to those locations, and to stay with the animals while the public considers them for adoption.
