Due to the coronavirus pandemic, people all over the world have been forced to stay at home to help flatten the curve and slow this outbreak.
But one good thing that has come out of this is that more people have been fostering and adopting pets from animal shelters while they’re quarantined at home.
One animal shelter in Florida city is celebrating an amazing milestone: every single dog in one of their three kennel buildings has been adopted!
One of the Friends of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control shelter’s kennels is completely empty for the first time since they’ve opened. This kennel is the shelter’s stray housing kennel and adoption overflow kennel.
“Thank you to the shelter staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to care for, find homes for, and advocate for the pets who come through these doors; thank you to our incredible foster parents who open their heart and homes to thousands of pets each year; thank you to everyone who has opted to adopt a shelter pet – whether it be here or from any of the other amazing organizations out there,” the shelter wrote on Facebook.
While one entire kennel has been adopted out, they still have some dogs available for adoption or foster in their main kennel, along with cats, horses and a pig.
