A Note from the President & CEO

As Florida and Martin County lift its stay-at-home order and other pandemic-related restrictions in their effort to reopen the state and our local community, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast is also beginning to craft our own plan to gradually resume regular operations.

While state and local restrictions will be lifted this coming Monday, May 4, I want to assure you all that HSTC will deliver its own smart and measured plan to reopen our facilities and programs that best preserves the safety of our employees, visitors, and community.

We will continue to send out updates as our leadership team sorts out the details of this plan. In the meantime, please continue to check back on the COVID-19 page of our website here.

Stay well!

Frank Valente

The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast recommends that pet owners follow the guidelines prescribed by the CDC:

  • Do not let pets interact with people or other animals outside the household.
  • Leave cats that are not your pets alone unless they are in an emergency situation. Keep owned, indoor cats inside with you.
  • Walk dogs on a leash, maintaining at least 6 feet from other people and animals.
  • Avoid dog parks or public places where a large number of people and dogs gather.
If you are sick with COVID-19 (either suspected or confirmed by a test), the CDC further suggests to restrict contact with your pets and other animals, just like you would around other people.
  • When possible, have another member of your household care for your pets while you are sick.
  • Avoid contact with your pet, including petting, snuggling, being kissed or licked, and sharing food or bedding.
  • If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wear a cloth face covering and wash your hands before and after you interact with them.

Finally, we urge you to include your pets in your household preparedness plans. In addition to preparations typically recommended for any natural disaster threat, individuals with pets should identify family members or friends to care for pets if someone in the household comes ill and is hospitalized.
