The animals in our care and their health are our top priority.

We follow strict guidelines for their care and wellbeing, and we are closely monitoring the health authorities for any updated information on COVID-19.

To date, the authorities have not received any reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19 and there is no evidence.

It is always a good idea to wash your hands after touching pets or other animals, regardless.
