The Animal Humane Society announced last week that it will pause services at the beginning of November. 

The pause in operations will run from Nov. 2 to Nov.9. 

According to a release from the organization, all shelters and vet centers will be closed for that week. 

AHS cited the COVID-19 pandemic as a major reason for the closure. 

"Although we can't eliminate the stress and uncertainty facing our communities, we can take proactive steps to support the well-being of our staff and volunteers. That's why we've decided to pause our services for a few days to provide some additional paid time off to our employees. We believe it's the right thing to do," AHS said in a statement.
