One member of my family doesn’t mind the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. Chief, my 2-and-a-half-year-old Siberian Husky is delighted to have everyone at home, all day, every day, available for walks, treats, belly rubs, and just hanging out.
If you’ve been wishing you had a wonderful fuzzy quarantine companion, you’re in luck!
I joined my colleagues on the Irvine City Council to authorize the center to open, making it the only City facility to reopen during the pandemic. The facility has been open to staff caring for animals during the pandemic.
Potential adopters can make an appointment and have a pet-matching interview by phone.
Adoption applications can be completed online, and then once all steps are complete, adopters will be allowed to go to the center to meet the animals.
Adopters are asked to wear face masks in the center and comply with other precautionary measures against the coronavirus.
Those interested in adopting an animal can make an appointment starting at noon Thursday.
