Pet Adopt Shop Limiting Services During Coronavirus Pandemic

The health and well-being of the animals in our care, our staff, and the community we serve continue to be our top priorities. In this spirit and in response to the most recent recommendations from our government leaders about slowing the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and minimizing the risks to the most vulnerable among us, the Prince William Humane Society Pet Adopt Shop is making the following changes until further notice.


The Pet Adopt Shop will be closed to visitors effective Friday, March 20, 2020. Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to care for the animals as usual.


We will continue adoptions by appointment only. Many pets in our care still need homes, and we are committed to ensuring they have that opportunity. All available animals are viewable online at pwhumane.org/adopt. If you are interested in adopting a pet, please contact our Adoption Counselors by email or call 703-634-0880 x 0 to start the process. When visiting during your appointment, please bring only the people in your home (limited to 6 persons) and please do not bring anyone who is ill or has traveled abroad recently.


We are not accepting any owner surrenders until further notice. If you need to surrender your pet, we ask that you contact family, friends, your social network and any other personal resources first. You may also try rehome.adoptapet.com through the Adopt-a-Pet website. Should you not be successful in re-homing your pet, you may take them to the Prince William County Animal Shelter, 14807 Bristow Rd. Manassas, VA 20012. 703-792-6465. Please check their Facebook Page to assure they are open and accepting pets.


Pet Pantry emergency pet food requests. Should you find yourself in need of pet food, please call us at 703-634-0880 x 0 to set up an appointment.

Emails will be handled in the order they are received. Our email inbox will be monitored from 10 am to 6 pm daily and our staff will reply within 24 hours to set up adoption appointments and 48 hours for non-adoption issues.

Please visit our website for updates and information.

Please be assured that we will not, under any circumstance, leave an animal unattended or in harm’s way. As Prince William Humane Society strives to meet the critical needs of the animals in our community, your continued support is essential to saving lives. This global pandemic will have an impact on all of us, but we can only provide this essential care to those most vulnerable, regardless of the environment around us, with your support. We are so grateful to do the work we do alongside people like you.

From the bottom of our hearts, and on behalf of all the animals, thank you.

P.W.H.S. Team
