Amid endless news about the tragic effects of COVID-19 comes a silver lining: pet adoptions boomed last month while families prepared to shelter in place. With millions of people now working from home and self-isolating, pets make the perfect companions. What better time to adopt a new friend?
"Many say they finally have the time to properly train and care for a new pet," reports the Washington Post. "Animal rescuers across the country say they are seeing spiking interest in adoption and fostering."
While many shelters are experiencing higher-than-usual adoption rates, please consider reaching out to local rescues to offer support. Some organizations may have limited resources to continue running adoption programs during the shelter-in-place order.
