Floyd County PAWS (Public Animal Welfare Services) continues its mission to attend to the welfare of animals amid the days of coronavirus.

Jeff Mitchell, Executive Director, indicates that PAWS’ hours of operation are temporarily limited to 1 pm until 4 pm every Monday through Friday, though that is subject to change.

The facility is sanitized on a regular basis to prevent the community spread of the coronavirus, asserts Mitchell, who adds that PAWS is a ‘touchy-feely kind of place” so sanitization is necessary.

Many animals have been transported up north for adoption over recent days, says Mitchell. And adoptions continue locally.

The adoption process at PAWS has been changed to ensure that all animals – and potential pet owners – remain safe, states Mitchell.

Mitchell says that donations from the public of money and cleaning supplies are welcome at this time, along with dog houses and leashes.
