Santa Rosa County Animal Services launches Fetch A Friend no-contact adoption program
Santa Rosa County Animal Services has launched a new "Fetch A Friend” no-contact adoption program, to help potential adopters find a new pet while maintaining safe social distancing. The process is simple and convenient:
The shelter will call to set up an appointment to:
Bring the animal out to your car in the shelter parking lot, or
Personally deliver the animal to your home.
The shelter will call a week later to check on your pet and finalize the adoption.
You may also follow Fetch A Friend on Facebook to see more photos of pets available for adoption. The Fetch A Friend program will help the shelter find homes for animals during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. Fewer people leaving their homes means fewer potential adopters visiting the shelter. Shelter population must be kept at a minimum to prepare for potential decreased staffing levels. Fetch A Friend allows for animals to continue to find homes during the COVID crisis, increases lifesaving and reduces number of animals in the shelter.
