Animal Shelter hours changed

Chehalis, WA – The Lewis County Animal Shelter will be closed Saturdays from now through the end of May 2021. Open hours are 10 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, except legal holidays.

Shelter manager Jennifer Teitzel advises residents who have lost a pet or found a stray animal outside of normal shelter hours to leave a detailed message on the shelter phone at 360-740-1290. When you call, she said, please leave complete contact information so shelter staff can follow up the next business day.

For found animals, include in your message the breed, gender, if it has a collar, nametag, or other identifying markings, where found, and where the animal is being kept.

If you have lost an animal, leave its name, breed, gender, if it has a collar, nametag, ID chip, or other identifying markings, and when or where it was last seen.

For more information about the shelter and adopting animals, contact Jennifer at 360-740-1290 or email
