Stations can include: check-in/registration, anesthesia, prep, surgery, vaccination, grooming, and discharge/recovery.

Feeding Community Cats During COVID-19

Our recommendation is for caregivers to carry on with their care and feeding routines so long as the caregiver is not infected with or experiencing symptoms of the virus (or exposed to anyone who is) or under mandatory quarantine for having been exposed to a person with the virus, and provided that the caregiver maintains appropriate social distancing guidelines. This is a rapidly evolving situation. We will keep you updated if and when we become aware of new information.
