Pet Adoption in a Pandemic

One silver lining of the pandemic is an increase in pet adoptions. Pandemic puppies are so popular that many people are put on wait lists to adopt. But the pandemic has also made it difficult for some pet owners to pay for pet food and veterinary care. On The Point, we discuss pet adoption and ownership during a pandemic, and how animal shelters are doing. Listeners call in to the show to share stories about pet adoption.



Guests: Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs at the MSPCA Colleen Doucette, director of the MSPCA Cape Cod
