On a street in San Francisco, in the United States, the Scrabble dog is tied to a fence, but it is not abandoned. It was left there so that these new masters could adopt it safely. Wearing gloves, they change his leash to take him with them. In the United States, this procedure has been put in place to adopt an animal or to become a foster family, during confinement.
“It’s very comforting”
And in the country, adoptions are exploding. “It’s very comforting to see how many people have come to help. People adopt dogs, people take care of dogs “says Sherry Franklin, founder of Muttville Senior Dog Rescue. In twenty-five years of animal rescue, she has never seen a phenomenon of this magnitude. It must be said that having a pet at home, would better support the crisis.
