Until further notice, Paws+Claws Rescue & Resort will be closed to the public with the exceptions of scheduled appointments for boarding, grooming, adoption, and surrender/stray drop-off. The cleanliness of our facility has always been of utmost importance for the health and well-being of our staff and the pets in our care and we are being proactive on maintaining that standard. While our shelter is a wonderful place for people to interact with animals, we are taking as many precautions as possible and focusing on the safety and security of our employees, volunteers, and the animals that require us to be healthy and available. With the State of Minnesota's mandate to close all schools by Wednesday, we want to emphasize the importance of social distancing and avoiding visits to our shelter.
We respectfully ask that you do not visit us if you are sick, coughing, sneezing, or feverish; if you're showing symptoms of illness, you will be asked to leave. For our boarding guests: Paws+Claws staff is available to pick up your pet from or return your pet to your vehicle in our parking lot if you have been traveling, feel ill, or feel uncertain about the COVID-19 situation. Please call ahead with payment and your anticipated arrival time and we will be ready for you when you arrive. We will continue to monitor the situation and respond as needed. We appreciate your support and cooperation, and we hope everyone remains healthy as we manage the uncertainty of this pandemic.
