The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County has adjusted their hours of operation to be open seven days a week, with new hours to take effect Saturday, Jan. 12. Hours of operation are now 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Sunday. This change will enable the Humane Society to rehome more animals to new forever homes and create consistency with open hours running from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Humane Society CEO Stuart Earley noted that putting the animals first is a key priority and opening seven days a week will provide more opportunities for pets to find their loving new families faster.

“Sunday is the one day of the week when many families can come together to choose a pet, and over the last six months, I have encountered many people who can’t visit the shelter on a weekday or even on a Saturday. It is important that we provide customer-friendly service to ensure more pets find their forever homes,” he said.

The hours of operation for the Humane Society’s phone system will also be extended to seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to improve customer service.

Adoption hours will continue to end one half-hour before the end of the public hours each day. The Humane Society encourages guests to plan their visit in advance by visiting the website at www.thehumanesociety.org.
