How to help Puget Sound’s surrendered pets during coronavirus crisis

Shelters housing the Puget Sound region’s four-legged fur babies need some help during this COVID-19 pandemic.

There has been a surge in surrenders of pets due to job losses from the coronavirus outbreak in Washington. Because of that, many of the area shelters are looking for families who have time to foster an animal.

Most shelters are doing adoptions by appointment — you will need to check with the shelter you’re interested in.

With the stay at home order in place, donations are down at shelters, and most are in need of food and supplies. I have linked animal shelters and their Amazon Wish Lists below.
