I'M NOT SURE, BUT THE LAST TIME SHS TOOK BOTH. IF THEY TAKE SIMSBURY KIDS, THEY SHOULD TAKE PETS.

Hi Carole, Great question! I will check on that today.

Hi Carole, According to Tom Cooke, Director of Administrative Services, residents are permitted to bring pets to the emergency shelter. There is, however, no policy about pets at the warming centers. If a resident needs a place to warm up with their pet during a cold snap, contact the Social Services Dept. and they will make arrangements for you.
