– A number of shelters and rescue centers in Ohio have adoptable dogs.
– This comes after there was an increase of adoptions because of the pandemic.

According to Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter Director Mindy Naticchioni, many shelters in the area do not have animals to offer to potential adopters.

The Northeast Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said in a statement that as of now they have 40 to 45 doggos with them, which is smaller than the normal 70-75 doggos they housed in the past. They fear, however, that once everything goes back to normal after the pandemic, they will see a surge of doggos being returned to them.
