“As Minnesota residents hunker down for another week of social distancing, some of them will be sharing their home with a new cat or dog — pet adoptions that may benefit other animals in the weeks to come.
On Sunday, the Twin Cities’ Animal Humane Society began a temporary closure to the public amid the coronavirus outbreak. But while adoptions are now on hold, it’ll continue to take in strays and other animals that have to be surrendered due to an emergency.
It was essential they create space to care for those new animals in the coming weeks. So the shelter made a big push over the past week to find homes for hundreds of pets.”
