Are Dogs Adopted During the Pandemic Being Abandoned?
Animal shelters across the country are reporting an uptick of dogs being abandoned, and many are pointing the finger at a shift in workers returning to the office. Such a return is leaving some pets that were adopted during the pandemic uncared for. Some people are even getting caught on camera leaving their dogs in the woods or empty parking lots and driving away. Other pet owners are simply returning their dogs to the shelter where they adopted them.
