Today is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.
During this difficult time people have stepped up and have been fostering or adopting pets at a much higher level than I anticipated, but there are still many pets stuck at shelters.
Volunteer duties have been suspended at the SPCA where I volunteer, but they are still open with paid staff and the shelter is taking reservations for people who want to adopt.
I hope to see an empty shelter when I am able to return.
That probably won’t happen but hopefully the pets at the shelter will be kept to a minimum.
That could happen. I am sometimes almost embarrassed to be human because of all the stupid, mean things that people do but during a time of crisis people tend to put the humane in humanity.
That’s true – and I see stories on the news all the time that people are adopting animals more – companionship is valuable and there are so many animals who need homes. It’s a WIN/WIN.
Win-win is so right.
I feel with you… sometimes I wish I would be a bug or a dinosaur… everything but no human sigh…
The poor shelter kitties probably wonder where all the strange humans looking at them went off to, we hope adoptions happen frequently and soon.
I feel bad because they are not getting the attention that the volunteers give them.
It’s sad you can’t help out at the shelter like normal. I bet you are looking forward to the day you can get back there!
Someone needs to give the kitties attention.
We’re happy to report that our shelter has had many adoptions during this crazy time…and the number of dogs and cats currently in the shelter is very low. Of course, kitten season is here…so that probably will change soon.
I’m glad to hear that.
AN=n empty shelter would be great.
That would be cause for celebration.
Black kitties! 🖤🖤🖤
Well said Charles, I feel with you!
