The pandemic has made nearly every aspect of our lives more complicated. Individuals and businesses everywhere have had to figure out new ways to survive. This is as true for pet shelters as it is for anyone else. Shelters have had to deal with running on a skeleton crew in order to keep staff and volunteers as safe as possible. Many are stretched thin with no sign of relief. This is hard on shelter workers and the animals they care for.
The good news is, you can help. Adopting or fostering an animal during COVID-19 makes a huge difference. If you take in a dog, Chitra Walmsley can help you figure out the best training techniques for your new pal. Here are some more tips for welcoming a new pet into your home during the pandemic.
Choosing a Pet
It's important to pick a pet that's a good fit for your home and family.
These tools will make your pet journey smoother.
Bringing a pet home is good for you, too.
Pet shelters need adopters and foster families to stay functional during the pandemic. When you bring an animal home, whether on a temporary or permanent basis, you make their job easier, and that animal’s life better. Plus, there’s a very high chance they’ll make your life better, too.
