CDHS Shelter Open for Adoption Visits by Appointment
The CDHS shelter is now open for adoption visits by appointment only.
To ensure the health and safety of the public and our staff, we have implemented the following protocol:
-CDHS will schedule a maximum of two adoption appointments per hour per building (two for the cat building and two for the dog building). The number of visitors per appointment will be limited to two.
-You must CALL CDHS (701-667-2020) to schedule an appointment for an adoption visit. We are able to answer our phones Tues-Fri from 1-6 pm and Sat from 1-4 pm.
-To best utilize your one-hour visit, we encourage you to view our adoptable pets on the website at www.cdhs.net and have an idea of the pets you would like to visit prior to arriving at the shelter.
-Although not required at this time, you are welcome to wear a face covering for your health and safety. CDHS staff may be wearing a face covering when they assist you.
-For dog visits, when possible, shelter staff will bring the dog to a play area outdoors for your visit.
-Dog adoptions do require at least two visits. We request that any other dog in your home visit as well (on the second visit) to ensure compatibility.
These procedures may be adjusted to ensure the safety and health of the public, our staff, and our shelter animals.
We look forward to the day when we can once again welcome all visitors with no restrictions. Thank you for continuing to love the animals.
