2020 has been a terrible year. The amount of suffering is absolutely unprecedented, in terms of sickness, economic hardship, and loss of loved ones.
I know every person who is going to read this post will have somehow been affected. So, I want to apologize if I come across as insensitive or self-centered when trying to get attention for animal rescue during these times.
But, I have to.
Animal rescue services are also greatly affected by the pandemic. Funding and donations have dropped substantially.
Many volunteers don’t feel safe anymore and have suspended their activities. I don’t blame them. If you live with people who are at high-risk, you need to make the right choice. You can’t just go around putting their health in jeopardy.
We need to find a solution, though. More animals are abandoned than ever. People don’t have the money to care for them or run into issues while living at home with all of their family.
So, look to see if there is something you can do! Even if it’s just a few hours per month. Or, just a few dollars per month. These animals are victims of Covid-19 just like us. And they deserve our help!
