Lost Our Home Pet Rescue is issuing an urgent call for foster families to take in pets during this crisis. The shelter says it expects that as adoptions slow during this uncertain time, the intake of pets will increase, leading to overcrowding.

The Maricopa County Animal Care and Control is at max capacity with at least 700 animals who need to be adopted. They're no longer taking in owned pets and if animals are found they're asking people to foster them at home while looking for owners instead of bringing them in. The shelter says that adoption is needed now more than ever.
