Animal Aid Society is monitoring developments regarding COVID-19. Please be assured that our top priority is the health and safety of all visitors, volunteers, and our pups. We are consulting the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Virginia Department of Health and local public health authorities.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states there is no evidence that companion animals or pets such as cats and dogs have been infected or could spread the virus that causes COVID-19.
We are maintaining our normal operational hours of 9am-12 pm every day. We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.
AAS is closely monitoring the situation and will be revising this message as necessary. To stay informed on COVID-19, visit cdc.gov for the latest updates.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We ask those who have recently traveled to a high-risk country, had any exposure to symptomatic or confirmed positive cases, confirmed positive themselves, or are displaying symptoms but have not been tested, refrain from visiting our facility for the time being.
Donations of hand sanitizer and clean old towels/wash cloths are much appreciated!
