Hours of Operation:
Monday – Friday
8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Because the shelter employs only two full-time officers, it sometimes closes without notice so the officers may handle emergency situations. The shelter will reopen once the emergency situation has been resolved. If there is a problem in your area, please call the shelter at 409.883.1056. If there is no answer, please leave a message and the officers will get back to you as soon as possible.
