The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of our daily lives and dog rescue is no exception. Our top priority is to continue to care for our Labradors and help Labradors in need, while providing a safe environment for our volunteers and our community.
Like so many others around the world, we are closely monitoring the status of the situation. This is a rapidly evolving situation that our team is responding to on an hourly basis in order to keep the Safe Harbor Lab Rescue community and our Labs safe. We are taking extra precautions and following expert guideline from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Please visit these sites if you have any concerns about COVID-19 and your dog.
Safe Harbor is an all volunteer rescue organization. During the coming days and weeks, we ask you for your patience and understanding as this is a fluid situation. We are supporting and respecting our volunteers during the social distancing period and as a result, our responses regarding adoptions and application processing may be delayed and the number of Labs available for adoption may be limited.
What can you do to help keep yourself and your personal pets safe?
- Prepare a one-month supply of your pets’ medication(s) and food (if possible) along with up-to-date copies of your pets’ vaccination records.
- Avoid crowded situations with your dog. You may wish to consider bathing your dog after exposure to such environments.
- Wash pet bedding, leashes, collars, dishes, and toys the same way you would clean other surfaces in your home.
Until then, stay home, keep your distance, and help flatten the curve. The sooner we beat this the sooner we can get back to saving more Labradors in need.
