On Twitter there is a video of the interior of the shelter facility at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) and it is entirely empty of animals.

The tweet by Denver 7 News reports that HSPPR said that all their animals have been adopted this week.

On the HSPPR website there is a notice regarding Covid-19 which asks that people who find animals should take them home if it safe to do so and fill out a report which HSPPR will act on to reunite animals with their owners.

Shelter notice about Covid-19.

The notice contains other information. It seems that one reason why the shelter is empty is because of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a strange video as we are constantly told that animal shelters are often at capacity and that they are reliant on foster homes for space.

The effect of Covid-19 on animal shelters and sanctuaries combined with the way veterinary clinics are now restricting services e.g. no spay and neuter, will have a big negative impact on how we deal with feral cats and conduct TNR across the USA. Elisa has written about this recently.

Note: videos on this site are typically made by people other than me and held on YouTube servers or the servers of other businesses (not the server storing this website). Sometimes the videos are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. It that has happened I apologise but I have no control over it.
