FOHA Shelter and The Treasure Hound COVID-19 Updates as of December 20, 2020

We are prioritizing the safety of our staff, volunteers, adopters, and customers and following all guidelines while we also provide optimal care for the dogs and cats at FOHA who are awaiting their forever homes.  Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19, our policies, hours, and procedures are subject to change. Please check this page often for current updates.

At the shelter and The Treasure Hound, all volunteers, staff, and visitors must cover their mouth and nose with a face covering when indoors at all times and when outdoors and unable to maintain at least six feet of physical distance from others.      

FOHA Shelter Operations

  • The shelter remains closed to the general public. 
  • Would you like to adopt from FOHA?
    • Dog and Cat Meet-and-Greets are by appointment only.
    • If you are interested in meeting one of our adoptable dogs or cats, please fill out an adoption application and indicate the 1 or 2 pets you would like to meet. 
    • A volunteer  will do their best to accommodate your request and schedule a meet-and-greet appointment. 
    • Our pets are getting adopted very quickly and there may be several applications received ahead of yours. If the status on the pet’s profile changes to “Pending Adoption” you will know that an adoption is now in process.
    • You must wear a mask during your appointment and we will be outside as much as possible to minimize any risks and maintain social distancing.
