Foster Animals & The COVID-19 Pandemic
Humans are not the only domesticated animals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Shelter animals have also felt its effects.
While some shelters have asked the public for help amid dropping staff attendence and fears of surging drop-offs, others have seen a surge in adoptions by those stuck at home and seeking companionship.
