Give animal rehoming centres help to rehome

As we all know, while a dog is for life not just christmas....A puppy is also not just for a pandemic. Animal rehoming centres must of course be allowed to perform home checks and any assessments they feel are required, but under the present guidelines, it is simply not possible possible for them to carry out socially distanced home checks etc, so many animals are stuck in centres unable to go to potentially great homes, and yet more animals are coming into the centres which are reaching capacity. Give whatever the animal rehoming centres themselves say they need to get their animals rehomed, be it PPE, different (but still safe!) social distancing guidelines, more funding...anything at all that will get these animals homes and free up space for constant flow of animals coming in!

Why the contribution is important

Because many people are now extremely lonely and isolated if they live on their own, and pets are very therapeutic. Because there are many animals now being dumped / abandoned or getting lost with owners unable to search for them due to lockdown. Because the animal welfare / rescue places are also doing an outstanding job of care in exceptional circumstances and they really deserve some good news!

    Definitely as animals are being neglected and abandoned.

    I agree but, we need to be careful rescue pets don't end up back at the rehoming charity once lockdown ends. We have a rescue dog who is awaiting a rescue pal (he has only been in the company of other dogs and is lost without a canine companion) for his welfare, we need to be able to take in another dog. This would also free up space in the kennels for another animal who desperately needs rescued

    I would happily rehome another dog to free up capacity if that were made possible.

    I would like too foster a cat during the pandemic, I have cat experience, but want a dog longer term, but not in the right position to take one on permanently yet. If anyone know a way I could help?
