Davenport, Iowa (KWQC) – King’s Harvest Animal Shelter adopted out all of its dogs by the time it closed its doors on Sunday afternoon due to COVID-19.
The staff of King’s Harvest Animal Shelter stated that they have never adopted out all of their dogs before.
“We have never had everyone get received,” said Vet Tech Assistant Gabrielle Weeks. “Indeed, even our dogs we assumed would be unadoptable have been embraced.”
Weeks said King’s Harvest staff worked seven days straight to ensure they received or fostered out as numerous pets as possible. The shelter also had a discount on adoptions.
“Staff and volunteers just took it out and discovered some extraordinary homes for some incredible animals that were in desperate need,” she said.
The shelter embraced out around 20 pets every day throughout the end of the week.
When they closed on Sunday, there were still 18 cats accessible.
“We are going to still be getting out feline fosters,” Weeks said. “Staff will still be here. We are still going to be coming in, cleaning and taking consideration of the animals.”
King’s Harvest staff understand why many would need the solace of a textured companion during this time
“Animals are a major solace, especially to us all,” Weeks said. “We are just trusting everyone stays in their eternity homes.”
King’s Harvest doesn’t realize to what extent it will be closed, however, it will stay accessible to those who need to embrace or foster by arrangement as it were.
