*The União Zoófila shelter is currently closed*
The dogs and cats in our care do not get sick with COVID-19, nor do they pass it on. But the humans who protect them – our staff, volunteers and sponsors – can get sick. So, to protect them, we are keeping our interaction with external visitors to a minimum, and outside only.
Sponsors can visit their sponsees between 2pm and 5pm.
. Donations can still be left at the gate.
We will continue with dog and cat adoptions as far as is possible. If you are interested in adopting a dog or a cat, please fill out the Adoption Application form and send it by e-mail to: email@example.com
