Without the means to facilitate traditional adoptions, humane organizations have turned to social media to ask for help in finding foster homes for their furry charges-and numerous shelters have received unbelievable outpourings of support from their communities.
Four employees are still working at the humane society per day to take care of the animals, answer phones and handle emergency intakes Leszczynski said.
But the shelter also is preparing for the possibility of an influx of animals coming in due to the continued spread of the novel coronavirus.
Save The Animals Foundation (STAF) on Red Bank Road said as of March 21, it was doing dog adoptions by appointment only. "People can still fill out adoption and foster applications online, and when they go online and pick out an animal they want to possibly adopt, they can make an appointment", said Jim Raney, Humane Society of the Ohio Valley board member.
"Staff will be on-call for emergency situations only", the shelter writes in a Facebook post.
Donations are always needed to help keep the shelter in business.
As of last week, 25 animals were placed with foster families.
"We rely on the public to adopt". Shelter and Rescue Support Facebook page and website allows shelters and rescue charities to share lifesaving advice, health tips, and ongoing coverage and information about COVID-19 and its effects on pets and people alike. Until it opens again, Jackson County Animal Control will only respond to emergency calls for dog bites and injured animals. Surrender of healthy animals are not accepted until further notice.
