COVID-19 (Corona Virus) UPDATE
As a result of the current situation with COVID-19 (corona virus) the HSDR has made the decision to close the shelter to public effective tomorrow, Tuesday March 17th, 2020 until further notice. The health, safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, visitors and our animals remains our first priority.
We will continue, without a doubt, to provide care for the animals in our shelter.
For urgent or essential services, the public may arrange an appointment at the HSDR by calling the shelter at 905-665-7430 ex 0 during regular business hours.
We will continue to keep a close monitor on the situation and we remain committed to keeping you updated along the way.
Thank you once again for your support for the HSDR and for the animals we care for each day.
