The Humane Society of Monoroe County's COVID-19 Update
We understand there is a lot of concern with COVID-19, President Trump's State of Emergency for the United States and MI Governor Whitmer's decree to ban gatherings over 50 people. Due to Governor Whitmer's Executive Order issued 3/23/2020, the HSMC Thrift Store will be closed until April 13th, and the HSMC Shelter will be closed to the public until April 13th. Due to the Mall of Monroe's closure during this order, all Pet Food Banks during this order will be canceled until the order is lifted.
The following events were postponed. The Bedford Trade Fair booth for March 21-22, more details to come later . The Annual Auction on April 4th with the theme Margaritaville, is postponed to July 18th, 2020
Currently there is no evidence that COVID-19 impacts companion pets:
