With the impact of COVID-19, SOLR, as with other rescues, has seen an increase in the number of adoption applications but also the number of displaced dogs. Below is SOLR's statement:
To our friends & supporters,
We want to share the measures we are taking to ensure the safety of the SOLR community amidst the coronavirus.
· We are still welcoming Labs into our care, as the need in shelters and communities has not changed. Labs are still being surrendered and picked up as strays, so we are doing all that we can to ensure they have a place to go.
· These dogs are receiving comprehensive vet care, and we are working to place them in foster homes as quickly as possible.
· We are taking numerous precautions when it comes to adopters and fosters interacting to meet a dog. They include practices we already encourage, such as discussing the dog via phone before the visit and gathering outside of the foster’s home and/or the adopter’s home, as well as specific measures such as practicing social distancing during the meeting and only agreeing to meet if both parties are feeling well and have not had known coronavirus exposure. We encourage adopters to discuss precautions with the foster before a visit.
We will continue to monitor this situation as it evolves, and we thank our volunteers and supporters for continuing to help dogs in need.
Sending best wishes for the health of you and your loved ones!
