COVID-19 response and information
Pawfect Match Rescue & Rehabilitation is focused on protecting the health and well-being of the animals in our care, our staff, volunteers, and the community we serve. We will update this page with any new developments; we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this situation together with the communities we serve.
3/27/20: Who will care for your pet?
While it’s not fun to imagine, now is an important time to create a plan for your pet in case you get sick. This weekend, we strongly encourage you gather any members of your household and walk through the following steps to ensure your animals will be well cared for in the event of an emergency.
With your whole family on board and a plan in place, you’ll feel a bit better about your pet’s safety knowing they’re in good hands no matter what challenges may arise. ❤
3/30/20: Update regarding statewide Safer At Home order
Safer At Home Update: Pawfect Match Rescue & Rehabilitation will remain hard at work during the statewide shutdown! We applaud the Governor and state officials for recognizing that shelters are truly essential to the welfare of the animals and people we serve. “Businesses that provide food, shelter, and other necessities of life for animals, including animal shelters, boarding, rescues, kennels, and adopting facilities" are all explicitly defined as “Essential Businesses” under the order. This means not only can our volunteers travel to work to care for animals, but that our community is also allowed to travel to access critical services, including adoption and foster care. (Please remember: adoptions are now by appointment only and we have limited volunteers so please be patient.
Can potential adopters and fosters still schedule meet and greets? Yes, we are still open for limited meetings and adoptions (by appointment only) and only by utilizing strong social distancing and hygiene practices; we appreciate your patience with our new process. To further limit interaction, we have moved to “curbside fostering” in which foster parents will remain in their cars while volunteers bring animals and/or additional supplies to and from their vehicles.
Can PMR&R still take in animals in need? Yes, the need is greater than ever before and we will continue to help as long as we have available foster homes to do so. If your family has been hit hard by the Covid 19 shutdown and you are in need of help to support your personal pets please reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. While we are not in a position to help everyone we may be able to help with food and other supplies or veterinary care.
Can PMR&R outreach work continue? Our outreach team is continuing its vital work with a great deal of social distancing, focusing on telephone support, leaving food and supplies on porches, and finding other ways to help our neighbors from afar.

Coronavirus response and information
We hope you and those you love are staying healthy and managing the uncertainty we’re all sharing as we work through challenges we’ve never seen before. Many of you are asking how we’re doing here at PMR&R. The answer is: we’re able to keep up our most critical work serving animals and people, and are embracing social distancing - and practicing even more stringent cleaning and disinfecting processes - to keep ourselves and our community as healthy as we can. All Public meet and greets have been cancelled until further notice.
