Calgary Humane Society adjusts adoption process during COVID-19 pandemic

Take the Kern County Animal Shelter in Bakersfield for example. "It's an unprecedented time, and there are still animals relying on us for support".

As a result, the humane society has changed its services effective March 25.

At this particular drive-thru, however, you aren't picking up ice cream or french fries-you're picking up a furry foster animal.

"This is a great opportunity to introduce a new pet into the home, as many people now have more time to spend bonding with their new pet", Jessica Bohrson with the Calgary Humane Society said.

But while the Newberg Animal Shelter is prepared to take in more animals from the community if necessary, Williams said the priority was to work with families to keep animals in homes whenever possible. Since the California shelter was forced to adapt to the statewide shutdowns, they chose to host a drive-thru adoption day for their shelter cats and dogs. Until it opens again, Jackson County Animal Control will only respond to emergency calls for dog bites and injured animals.

- Lost and Found Services - calls from the public to report lost or found animals. "We're floored with the response".

As for how long the adoption suspension will last, James says the shelters are preparing for at least 14 days. Going forward, a reduced number of staff will still be at the facilities taking care of the animals.
