PETS STILL NEED HOMES, AND SHELTERS ARE STILL OPEN

Metro Animal Shelter Puppy

If you need a little help handling the isolation of self-distancing, the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter has you covered.

Adopting or fostering a pet in need is a great way to pass the time and find a reason to get outdoors and exercise, said Thomas Sahm with the shelter.

“If you’re by yourself it’s great to have something with you or someone with you, you can play with them, you can take them out in your backyard, you can walk them as long as you’re practicing your social distancing,” Sahm said. “You know, it’s a great way to have some companionship while you’re by yourself.”

The animal shelter is still in full operation and offering adoptions, fostering and their happy hour program, but they require an appointment before arriving. Click here to make an appointment.
