Many of us are spending more time than ever at home and at the same time, realizing a furry companion might be just what the doctor ordered. Understandably your concern might be about animal adoption right now and who is even offering adoptions?
Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) in Walnut Creek is offering adoptions through a new, virtual adoption process!
If you see an animal you're interested in on their website, email their team at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the name of the animal you're interested in, as well as a phone number you can be reached at, to be added to their virtual queue.
Their new adoption hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 12 noon to 5 pm.
To maintain recommended social distance, all interaction will be done using email and phone calls, up until the moment you take your pet home.
You can reach ARF's website, here to see what animals are available for adoption.
ARF is also in need of donations. Their raise the bulk of their money through fundraisers and now with the mandatory shelter-in-place, all events have been cancelled. If you have a few dollars to spare (even $20 or $50 or $100), please consider donating to ARF. It truly will make a difference. Donations can be made, here.
Jack Kulp and Carolyn McArdle talked to Erin with ARF about their virtual adoptions and their need (especially now) for donations.
