Everyone needs a little company in this virus outbreak.
Since social distancing is a thing that everyone should be doing. Many of us are stuck in homes all alone. However, It doesn’t have to be that way if you have a pet to keep you company.
Maybe this is the reason why adoption centers have seen such a surge in animals finding a loving family. Now I don’t recommend getting a pet just because you feel lonely these days but if you were already thinking of getting one then it’s perfectly fine.
The following photos might make you wanna adopt even more. From adorable bunnies to one-eyed cats, I am sure these animals are happy to find their forever homes. So scroll on below and take a look.

Following is what a manager at an adoption center had to say.
By adopting an animal in need – no matter the species, breed, or size – you may be saving that animal’s life as well as freeing up valuable shelter space and resources for other animals in need.
A huge benefit of adopting animals from a shelter is that shelter staff know the animals well and can provide detailed information about an animal’s history, medical needs, behavior, and temperament.
They also consider a potential adopter’s lifestyle, home environment, and the animal’s potential compatibility with children and other animals in the home in order to make matches that are a good fit.Kelly DiCicco

When it comes to choosing which pet to adopt, prospective adopters should feel comfortable asking plenty of questions and lean on shelter staff for guidance, as every shelter has a unique population of animals and no one knows them like the people who work with them every day.
Plus, shelter staff have expertise in making successful matches and can help prospective adopters decide whether an animal is a good personality and lifestyle fit. They also consider each animal’s background and energy level, as well as how the animal might get along with other people and pets in the home.Kelly DiCicco

Because this is an unprecedented and ever-changing situation, each shelter is facing unique challenges specific to its communities.
Many shelters are facing reduced staff and volunteer support, which is putting animals in desperate need of temporary or permanent sheltering outside the four walls of typical adoption centers and shelters.
As our shelters were scheduled to close, we saw an outpouring of support from our community and experienced some record days of adoptions. The majority of remaining animals are being cared for by foster volunteers until the shelters reopen, and a small group of staff are caring for animals that must stay at the shelter for medical or behavioral reasons.Kelly DiCicco

We’re still here to help the most vulnerable animals in our community, and we encourage others to get involved as well.
Fostering can give you the opportunity to single-handedly change an animal’s life for the better and is a rewarding experience for those who choose to become caregivers.
There’s no place like a loving home to get a dog or cat used to the sights, sounds, and experiences that will set them up for a successful future adoption.Sarah Bhimanni
