COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

What shelter-in-place means for animal shelters.

Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center will be open from 10am – 4pm by appointment only. To schedule an appointment to adopt an animal, please email .

We will continue to provide the following services to our community:

  • The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center’s Pet Food Assistance Program feeds 100’s of dogs and cats each month in coordination with different partner organizations throughout the community.  Our Pet Food Assistance Program is also available to anyone who is experiencing financial hardship and might need a little help providing food for their beloved pet(s). We coordinate individual pet food packaging and delivery to those in need and in these times that includes pet owners who are struggling with the loss of employment due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Food can be picked up from the Center Thursday – Saturday from 10am – 1pm.
  • Owner relinquishments of puppies and kittens under 8 weeks of age by appointment only.  To schedule an appointment please fill out the form on our website
  • Fostering animals is especially critical right now, since we anticipate fewer people will be coming in to adopt pets amidst the COVID-19 outbreak. Thanks to our incredible volunteers, we do not currently need fosters, but that may change in the coming days. If you would like to help us be prepared for that eventuality, you can sign up here.

Riverside Rovers

Thank you for your interest in the MSRPAC Riverside Rovers Walking program! 

 

The MSRPAC Riverside Rover program allows local residents to take a dog for a day of fun and give them an a much needed break from their kennel. You can take your pal hiking, to a dog-friendly restaurant or just hang out in the park for a little fun in the sun! *You must be 14 years or older to sign up. Those under 18 must be accomanied by an adult.

There are a limited number of dogs available so be sure to sign up ahead of time to secure your place. 

We will email you the day before your outing with a selection of dogs available. It is a first come first serve basis so be sure to respond with your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices! If you do not have a preference, we will choose for you.

Dogs are subject to change, if this happens we will notify you as soon as possible.

When arriving at the center you'll get a quick safety debriefing, sign paperwork and to get acquainted with your buddy before you head out.  Dogs can be returned anytime up until 4 pm. Remember to have fun and take pictures - we love seeing happy pups!  Don't forget to let everyone know your Riverside Rover is available for adoption. 

Thank you for interest in our outreach programs at Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center.
