How Much Is That Doggie In The Window? Technology and The Future of Pet Adoption
May 13, 2020
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Pet adoptions are way up amid coronavirus crisis, even with shelters closed to public” (USA TODAY). “Like everyone else forced to improvise in the face of an unprecedented crisis, America's animal shelters are coming up with creative ways to stay "open," so they can continue pairing people and pets. Americans are rushing, well, not to their local shelters but to their phones and laptops to check out available pets, to donate money and supplies, to share the word on social media about rescuing homeless balls of furry fun. Appointment-only and call-ahead adoptions, drive-up fostering and curbside adoptions, online training and at-home volunteer projects…are some of the solutions…to help care for vulnerable animals during the pandemic.” We’ll ask four pet-loving-and-adopting actors – Lori Hammel, Samantha B. Northart, Neal Mayer and Shirleyann Kaladjian – for their take on Technology and The Future of Pet Adoptions.
