A fantastic rare occasion at the animal shelter, Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, only humans to be heard, no dogs barking, or cats meowing.
It is not often that this happens anywhere in the world. Probably one of the most satisfying feelings for the staff at (HSPPR). Not once but twice, they emptied their cages in a week. My heart wants to burst with happiness for these animals. Can you imagine how the animals felt to find a forever home?
To top it all, this happened during the outbreak of this terrible virus; the world is going through. Finding dogs and cats new homes is hard enough, yet this happened while residents were beginning to hunker down and practicing social isolation during this challenging time.
HSPPR said thank you to everyone on Facebook who recently adopted from the shelter…
“That’s right, Colorado Springs. You did it again! We emptied out our Cat Adoption Center on Tuesday, and last night, we adopted out every dog in our available dog kennel! Amazing! Just look at all those empty kennels. We can’t thank you enough for helping us find homes for all these amazing pets during this difficult time!”
Despite the success of its adoptions, the HSPPR still has new animals coming in every day. Whether they are strays or owner surrenders, many more ‘furry friends’ are entering the shelter.
It was a huge victory adopting out all the animals.
Adopting an animal from the shelter is less expensive than buying a pet. They are more likely house trained and will probably be the most loving pet you could ever wish for. They could show their gratitude with love, affection, and loyalty.
Pets can lessen the feeling of isolation and loneliness in all age groups. Pet makes beautiful friends. They can help improve a persons’ well-being in various ways.
