In a number of animal shelters in Bavaria, kennels and cages are currently empty. Since the beginning of the Corona-crisis, there had been increased demand for dogs, cats or rabbits and at the same time, fewer animals had been made, said Ilona Wojahn, President of the state Association of Bavaria of the German animal protection Federation and head of the shelter Dingolfing. You have to get requests from other shelters, if you could take your dogs to Convey, because these homes had no more animals.
The people would have had during the Lockdown weeks, probably more time, a new pet settle in, suspected Wojahn. The shelter staff have reviewed the interested parties, however, well to the care of the animal even after Corona: "The crisis will pass, but who will take care of the dog?" In Dingolfing the shelter, the uncomplicated dogs are gone now. Those that were still there, were eye-catching behaviour, hard-to-place cases.
Similar experiences of, for example, the animal shelters in Nuremberg, and Straubing. Also there are more animals had been taught. Especially the number of serious enquiries was higher, accounted for Miriam Bader, Deputy head of the animal shelter in Nuremberg, Germany. And because of the General traffic was not permitted because of the Corona, were able prospective customers come by appointment only. Also, since the employees would have had more time to take care of the customer.
This experience has also made Ricarda Schumann, Director of the shelter in Straubing. Many of the dogs had come in families, were rabbit, for example, no longer there. "I've seen in my 14 years here." Also Schumann's impression that the people weren't interested in an animal, because they had been in Lockdown lonely, but because you just had the time, the animal settle in. The audience traffic accounted for, have had a positive effect on the animals. It was a lot calmer and the animals relaxed.
In the shelter of Augsburg, demand remained unchanged in comparison to past years, approximately constant, as a spokeswoman said. There are many, however, have been remarkably delivered wild animals, such as injured birds, raccoon, or hedgehog.dpa Date Of Update: 04 June 2020, 02:26
