What are the Animal Shelter's Operating Hours?

WPCAS is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am until 4pm with extended hours Wednesdays and Fridays where we are open until 6pm. The shelter is closed on Sundays and Mondays. The phones are answered on these days from 8:00am to close. The shelter is closed Sunday and Monday. On Sundays and Mondays, emergency calls will be dispatched to the on-duty animal control officer.

Surgery drop offs should arrive on the scheduled surgery day between 8:30 and 9:00. If the pet is not at the shelter by 9am we will have to reschedule the pet’s surgery date.
