Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The Quincy Humane Society officials said while their shelter is closed due to COVID-19. However, it doesn't mean you still can't foster or adopt animals.

Sally Westerhoff, the executive director of the shelter, said the majority of the animals are not at the shelter. She said last week she asked for help fostering their animals and currently, 25 dogs and cats are in foster homes. Westerhoff added once the done with maintenance and repainting their kennels, they will receive more animals. So, there will continue to be a need for foster homes will the shelter is closed, she explained.

She said if you are interested in adoption, coming into the shelter it is by appointment only for now. Which Westerhoff said she has received a lot of calls about people wanting to adopt.

"I think people are at home, they have that extra time on their hands now to integrate another animal into their home," said Westerhoff. "Animals, as you know, are a great source of comfort and they are also good for our health and well being. And encourage us to get out, because dog walking is one thing people can do now."

You can look at the animals that are up for adoption on their website.

They added their spay and neuter clinic is open while the vaccination clinic is on hold.
