The Story

Donate today to wipe out ringworm at Harmony House.  While we have been following all the recommended treatment guidelines, our veterinarian suspects that some cats showing no symptoms are acting as carriers since cases keep popping up in other rooms. Ringworm is actually not a worm or a parasite. It is a fungus that is difficult to eliminate since the spores are found in the cat's fur plus every nook and cranny where infected cat hair can hide. After a lot of research and consultation with shelter medicine specialists,  we have decided to close the shelter for an extensive deep cleaning process.  All the ductwork will be professionally cleaned and filter changes will be made throughout the HVAC system. We will dip every cat, and do multiple deep cleans of every room. Starting March 5th, Harmony House will close for three weeks for this disinfecting process.  

The shelter will be closed for Adoption Hours and Volunteer Hours March 5th - 25th.  

The process will be costly, so the cats are counting on your help. Please donate today to wipe out ringworm. If you can’t donate today, please share this message so we can reach as many people as possible. We appreciate your support, understanding, and patience while we do everything we can to get the shelter "back to normal."
