Everything was on a halt during the COVID-19 pandemic. Especially most of the in-person human contact, however, this only means continuous growth of communication with our furry friends. They are an emotional and physical stress reliever no doubt.
NAR’s Animal House: Pets in the Home Buying and Sale Process found that 66 percent of U.S. homes either had a pet or were preparing to get one — before the coronavirus outbreak — that number is likely to rise when animal shelters announce that they are low of pets available for adoption.
But Still, It’s Never too Late to Adopt!
It’s never too late to welcome new addition to your household or family, especially while living in quarantine conditions. So It’s now worth following up about animal shelters in your community. Let’s help them animals find forever homes. If you have one and not planning to add anytime soon try encouraging your relatives, friends, or maybe clients.
