Pet adoptions are continuing at the Christian County Animal Shelter although the procedures are considerably different than usual.
Irene Grace is the animal shelter’s director and says they are closed to walk-in traffic in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but adoptions can still happen through appointments from 10:30 to 4 during the week.
Grace says the shelter houses an average of 100 animals per day. Trigg and Todd Counties as well as the cities of Hopkinsville and Oak Grove contract to bring their animals to the Christian County facility.
However, they currently have less than 20 animals in the shelter thanks to an abundance of people wanting to foster an animal until things return to normal.
Grace says the only animals they are accepting right now come from animal control officers. She added not all animals can be released to the public because they are involved in ongoing court cases.
The community support of the shelter has been overwhelming but not surprising to Grace.
