Animal shelter  operations changed  due to virus threat

Taking into consideration recommendations released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention on social distancing, and measures taken across the nation to include travel bans, school closures, quarantines and event cancellations, the City of Florence has modified its operations schedule for the Jayne H. Boswell Animal Shelter to include the following:

• The shelter, located at 1434 S. McCurdy Road, was closed to the public on March 19 and will remain closed until a date to be determined. Please call regarding adoptions as these may be scheduled by appointment on a case by case basis.

• The city is requiring customers to call prior to visiting the shelter to determine if you can be assisted by phone (843-629-5456) or by e-mail (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

• For scheduled appointments, only two customers are allowed from the same party, and no more than 10 people total in the shelter at one time.

City officials will continue to monitor the impact and need of such restrictions and will re-evaluate these actions as circumstances change.
