The Udall Recreation Center, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Road, will remain open today and overnight tonight to assist people and their pets that are affected by the utility outages due to the cold weather. Pets MUST be crated while at the shelter. When taking pets outside, pets MUST be kept on leash. Please note that Service Animals are exempt from these provisions. Staff will be available to assist with pet issues at this shelter. Udall Center will remain open during regular operational hours for center activities.

This shelter will provide a communal area for people with cots, blankets, comfort kits, and basic food/water. If you plan to go to the shelter, remember to take appropriate medications, personal toiletries and sanitation items, baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers), cell phones with chargers, and supplies for pets (crates, collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl). If you will be taking children to the shelter, remember to take their comfort items and/or special toys to keep them occupied.

Individuals with disabilities who require special accommodations are requested to contact Trish Tracy at 471-7409. Requests should be made as soon as possible to allow time to arrange the accommodations.
