“What's the single, most important thing the average person can do right now to help cats and dogs if coronavirus impacts shelter operations for any reason? FOSTER. Let's face it. Any time people feel general worry and uncertainty, they're less likely to want to make a lifelong commitment. Even if no one in your community ever has coronavirus, just the simple fear and concern people are feeling might mean that adoptions decrease while intakes stay the same or increase. [S]tart planning now for what types of pets you may be able to accommodate for a short period. So if you want to act now to do something to help, get those foster supplies. Let your shelter know you can help. Be prepared to house a pet for several weeks if your shelter exceeds capacity or shelter operations are interrupted.” • Fostering saves lives.
