"I think what's important to recognize is that animal shelters are key players in any disaster response, and we're reducing our shelter population via adoptions, via foster homes in order to get ready for what the community needs in the future", said Sharon Harmon, president and CEO of the Oregon Humane Society.
If your pet runs away and is dropped off at the shelter or picked up by an animal-control officer, you can search for your pet on petharbor.com/ and claim your pet by calling 316-350-3366 to set up an appointment. "The only animals that are coming into the shelter right now are those that we are required by law, basically, to bring in". "It's not healthy to have an animal sit in a cage for 30 days", Kern County Animal Services Director Nick Cullen told The Californian. Volunteers would fill out applications online before driving to the shelter and bursting into cries of joy as they were handed their lovable new friend to take home as a temporary foster.
The organization's essential services also includes the general care and veterinary care of the animals in their facilities.
Those considering adopting a pet from the Cascades Humane Society and Jackson County Animal Shelter will have to wait as the facilities have closed to the public due to the novel coronavirus.
