How to Open Your Heart and Home to a Pandemic Pet

There haven’t been a lot of bright spots during the pandemic but the fact that more people are welcoming homeless pets into their home is something we can all celebrate! If you are thinking about adopting a new furry family member to keep you company in lockdown, there are a few basic tips and resources you should keep in mind. So, whether you plan on adopting one of the available pets from Pacific Pups Rescue or another rescue, here’s what you need to know.

Let’s Start By Getting Your Home Ready

When you bring your buddy home for the first night, the last thing you want is for him to escape or swallow something dangerous. So spend some time preparing your home for the new pet.

Now It’s Time to Go Shopping for Supplies

With your home organized and a safe space set up for your new furkid, you can move on to picking out a few essentials to keep him healthy and comfortable.

Not Ready to Adopt? Foster Instead!

We’ll be the first to tell you that getting a pet is a lifetime commitment. But if you’re not up for commitment just yet, you can still help pets during the pandemic by fostering!

If you need a little more love and joy in your lockdown life, consider adopting a new dog or cat! The resources above will help you prepare for your new furry family member, but also know that you can foster if you’re not ready to commit. Either way, you’ll be helping a homeless animal!
