Pandemic Pets on Social Media: Increases in Pet Adoption

By Editorial Staff

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, animal adoptions have surged. People are spending more time in their homes, increasing the interest in adopting a pet, especially dogs. Whether your dogs are pandemic pets or not, they’ve probably had the best year of their life with everyone being home so much. This pandemic has also been a great time to raise a dog because, with the ability to stay home more, people have much more time to train them.

Many people in quarantine adopted animals during the pandemic for emotional support, and the demand for pets has increased so much that some shelters have even run short on animals. Animal influencers are already pretty popular on social media, but after the boom in pet adoption in the last year, pandemic pets have taken over Instagram. Here are some pets to keep an eye out for.
