Thank you Petco Foundation for supporting SPOT's Programs!
SPOT is resuming adoptions for dogs, cats are a little trickier so we need to think that through a bit but will pursue that as well.
Surrenders will be case by case & not related to Covid-19. Having said that, there is assistance for people in quarantine or hospitalized with the virus who need care for their pets. (See referrals at the bottom of email.)
There is also a need for volunteers to help deliver pet food to shut-ins. This is a no-contact job facilitated by Skagit County. (Please see contact info below.)
Also copied here is a portion of Skagit County's official position on Covid-19 regarding pets:
'COVID-19 Skagit County Animal Response Guidelines
Currently there is no evidence that companion animals can be a source of infection to humans or animals. Human to human contact and droplets on surfaces appear to be the biggest threat for transmission. Out of an abundance of caution the following is recommended:
For the Public:
-It is recommended that animals and their owners co-house as often as possible. It is also recommended to plan for your animals' care in case you or your entire house are unable to care for your pets.
-If a person in the home becomes ill, it is recommended that the ill individual limit their contact with the animal and have another family member care for the animals if available. If the ill patient is the only care giver for the animal, the WHO, OEI, and CDC continue to recommend that close contact be avoided, maintain good hygiene practices and wear a face mask if possible.
- Animals may be walked outside on a leash, but should not have contact with other animals or people as long as ill owner is on isolation. It is recommended that animal be bathed after isolation to remove any virus possible on the fur.
-If an owner is ill, hospitalized, or deceased and there is no known family or friends to care for the animal, Animal Control or Law Enforcement may be contacted for removal or care of the animal as deemed appropriate and safe.'
