When COVID-19 shut the world down, several hearts and homes opened up. As the country prepared to stay in, many people went to animal shelters in search of a quarantine companion. Now, restrictions are loosening and people are returning to old routines, but new pets don’t fit into every new normal.
“When you have a dog and you’re with them 24/7, it’s a lot different than when you have to go back to work. If people live in apartments, and the dog barks constantly because their person is no longer home, a lot of people have to relinquish a dog for that reason,” said Selena Davison, Shelter Manager at Maxfund Animal Adoption Center.Leave a reply
