Morris COVID Protocols
January 02, 2021
Animal Welfare
Morris Animal Refuge is open! Because COVID-19 is still a concern and the health of our animals, community, and staff is our top priority, there will be some temporary protocols in place to keep everyone safe.
All staff and guests will be required to wear masks and to maintain a six foot social distance whenever possible. All adoptions and surrenders will be done by appointment only. At this time, we cannot accommodate more than one guest inside the shelter at a time and temperatures will be taken before guests are allowed to enter the building. Please do not come to the shelter without a prior appointment.


If you are interested in adopting an animal from Morris Animal Refuge, please fill out an adoption application and email to schedule an appointment or a virtual meet and greet. If there is a specific animal you are interested in, please include their name in the subject line of your email.

Animal Surrenders and Intakes

If you have an animal that you need to surrender, please fill out our surrender form, and one of our staff members will be in contact with you to schedule an appointment.

In-Kind Donations

Donations of supplies can be dropped off in the donation bin outside the doors of the shelter during business hours. Please do not enter the shelter with the donations. If you would like a receipt for your in-kind donation, or have a question about if we accepet a specific item as a donation please email

Please Note

We are currently working with a smaller staff than usual so it may take a bit longer than normal to respond to email inquiries.  Please be patient with us as we adjust to these protocols and we will get back to you as soon as we are able.
We cannot thank our community enough for the support you have shown us throughout this year so far. We will keep you updated as our protocols change.
Stay healthy and safe!
The Morris Animal Refuge Family
