Pet adoptions continue at Ingham Co. Animal Shelter


SUNDAY, Aril 5 — Twenty-two pets were adopted from the Ingham County Animal Shelter last week despite the coronavirus shutdown.

Adoptions are being done by appointment at the shelter in Mason through shielding glass to help protect staff and the public from exposure to the virus, according to a news release. Digital adoptions are used when feasible, the release said.

“With over 100 pets currently in foster care, ICACS is hoping to be able to continue connecting pets with their forever homes,” the release said.

The release said animals are still arriving at the shelter for adoption and are being placed in foster homes while they await adoption. ‘“Meet and Greets”’ done by video chat, and lengthy descriptions of pets behaviors have been essential in matching pets to homes,” it said.
