“Animal Care reminds residents that being a pet parent is a long-term commitment that should be made thoughtfully,” ACS officials said in a news release.

Dogs and cats at the shelter can be searched online here, and appointments to meet or adopt an animal can be made here.

Appointments are strongly encouraged and walk-ins will be allowed as space permits. Face coverings will also be required on campus.
