At this time, we are taking precautions to help stop the spread of COVID 19. Intake and adoption has been limited and will be handled on a case by case basis. Our fundraising events for 2020 (including Dancing with the Del Norte Stars and Coastal Canine Olympics) have been cancelled. We will assess the situation and announce plans for 2021 accordingly.
Our low cost spay/neuter program is BACK!
See calendar on the Spay/Neuter tab.
We will continue to follow our protocol for social distancing. We ask that pet owners wear a mask during drop off & pick up of pets. We also ask that you remain in your vehicle until asked to approach. We wish health and happiness to all and are happy to be back to semi-normal !
There are so many questions regarding COVID 19 and whether pets can contract it, or if it can be passed from pets to people or people to pets. The information is very conflicting at this time, so we will not be sharing any on our site until there are more definitive answers.
The Humane Society of Del Norte is a 501(c)(3) non-profit cat shelter run completely by volunteer staff. We do not have regular hours of operation. We are by appointment only.
Cats coming into our shelter receive vet care, love, and anything else they may need in preparation for new homes with loving families.
Aside from our shelter operations, we also offer a low cost spay and neuter program for owned cats and dogs and a trap/neuter/release program for feral strays.
We exist solely on heartfelt donations from community members, an occasional grant, and A LOT of local fundraising events.
We could not function without our dedicated volunteers and donations from our community. Please consider volunteering your time at the shelter, or making a donation.
