Adoptions Resume At ARL of Boston Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Animal Rescue League of Boston resumed their adoption services Tuesday after suspending them back in March amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

More than 200 animals were placed into foster care when adoptions were suspended. The idea was to "free up kennel space in the chance of pet owners being forced to surrender animals for a myriad of COVID-19 related reasons including financial hardship or direct impact from the virus," according to the ARL.

Anyone looking to adopt must make an appointment, and they must wear a face covering and follow CDC hygiene guidelines when coming to the shelter.

The number for adoptions is 617-426-9170. Here are the extensions for the different shelter locations: Boston is x604, Dedham is x605, and Brewster is x305. Available animals are listed on the ARL website —
