Since the start of covid-19, animals in shelters all over the world have been affected significantly by the pandemic. This is something I don't believe should be forgotten and serves as an important opportunity for animals. Pandemic pets have been talked about in the media for some time during the pandemic and it might be a missed opportunity if it is not continued to be talked about and if the community cannot step up to take care of such a large group of animals. I will be introducing who pandemic pets are, why they exist, and how we could help them. WHO ARE 'PANDEMIC PETS' Empty animal shelters could
Looking for some inexpensive and simple ways to treat dogs this summer?! This is such a simple concept that will dogs (such as mine) seem to love.
