BOISE, Idaho — One of the results of the current coronavirus pandemic and stay-at-home orders: a pet adoption and fostering boom!
As a number of animal shelters across the country have been emptied, many people are turning to online resources to find their perfect companion. However, trying to welcome a new fur baby home could result in financial loss from a scam.
When you do decide to search for a new pet, Dixon suggests staying local.
“We have the Idaho Humane Society, we have shelters in a number of counties in the area, and we recommend that folks start there with adoption. If you’re looking for a specific breed, then find a local breeder,” says Dixon.
