Friends of Federated,

Please find the updated COVID-19 Guidelines from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture regarding boarding kennels, doggie daycares, animal shelters, sanctuaries, and rescues.

Also please note the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has issued a COVID-19 Waiver that waives the spay/neuter requirement for shelter pets at the time of adoption.

Lastly, for our friends working out in the field please find below the NACA Statement on removing pets from homes of residents that are or suspected to be infected with COVID-19.

Remember, general assistance, unmet needs, and resource requests should be directed to county emergency management agencies while copying PASART Executive Director Sarah Speed at or 717-651-2736 to ensure coordination and tracking of the larger statewide effort for resources and requests.
