Vernon SPCA reopens for adoptions

The Vernon SPCA is once again open.

The shelter, which has been closed for a month while treating cases of ringworm, is now open regular hours for adoptions and donations. The shelter cannot yet take in new animals but expects to be back to full operation soon.

“We are so grateful for the public’s understanding and support during the past few weeks and for the donations of towels and bleach that we needed to keep the shelter sanitized and safe for the animals,” said Corinne Ross, manager.

She notes that the shelter is still in need of canned kitten and cat food and is grateful for any donations from the public.

If you can help, drop off supplies at 4800 Haney Road (at the gate or outside deck area) or call 250-549-7297.
