As of the beginning of November, the City of Oak Harbor no longer shelters dogs and cats in the city.

Loose animals are now taken to the Whidbey Island Animal Foundation facility at 60 Rhododendron Park Road in Coupeville.

The Oak Harbor Police Department and WAIF recently entered into a modified agreement for the sheltering of dogs and cats.

The city was leasing a facility in Oak Harbor for the temporary sheltering of dogs and cats, and that facility was staffed by WAIF personnel.

The leased facility closed on Nov. 1 and will no longer be used for this purpose.

Anyone looking for a pet that may have gotten loose can call WAIF at 360-678-8900.

If someone finds a lost dog or cat, the animal may be taken directly to the shelter in Coupeville.

Police officers or an animal control officer can also respond.

The Oak Harbor Police Department can be reached at 360-279-4600.
