A year ago, there was a record number of animals adopted into loving homes. Families found more time and opportunity to welcome a new family member due to the effects of COVID. Sadly, a record number of animals have recently been turned into shelters since people stopped working remotely. The time commitment, expense of owning a pet, lack of available vets, and life changes have caused pets to be turned into a shelter; and a lot of those animals are still waiting for their forever homes.
In a recent CBS news report, Berkeley Humane expressed the sadness and frustration at the lack of adopters and the number of larger dogs who are still waiting for their forever home.
The news segment featured Carly Skonnard from Berkeley Humane who showcased two beautiful dogs, Kieran a shepherd mix, and Ducky, a Doberman Pinscher.
Both dogs are friendly, health-checked, and overlooked. Berkeley Humane staff train the dogs and spend time with them and want nothing better than to find the perfect adopter for these long-time residents.
