COVID-19 and your pets. What should you do?
Like you, Colorado Animal Rescue is very concerned about the well-being of our shelter pets and the pets in our community as the COVID-19 illness in our area continues to affect our daily lives. The following links provide valuable information from trusted sources and we encourage you to take a quick read. Our key takeaways from these articles include:
Currently, there is no evidence to suggest that pets, livestock, or zoo animals can spread the COVID-19 virus to people.
Identifying and communicating with family members or friends who can care for your pet in case you fall ill will keep them safe in loving arms.
Preparing your pets for outstanding circumstances by ensuring you have a pet preparedness plan, along with updated microchip information and current identification is key.
Recording details about your pet—s medication & dosages, allergies, and your veterinarian—s contact information will help in the event of emergency care.
Colorado Animal Rescue is committed to helping pets in need during this crisis. If you, or someone you know, is struggling to care for their pet please contact us at 970-947-9173 or by e-mail at [email protected].
We wish you all an abundance of purrs, snuggles, wet noses, and animal kisses.
