During Quarantine These Shelter Pets Were Taken On A Field Trip At The Local Zoo

While the coronavirus quarantine had us confined to our homes, it’s given some animals much more freedom. Without people, nature always flourishes.

The empty city streets became a perfect playground for animals, stray and wild. All this commotion and mixing in the animal world gave people from one Texas shelter an interesting idea – they decided to take the shelter residents on a field trip to the local Zoo, where they could meet some exotic animals and maybe interact.

And the animals on both sides of the fence (glass) loved it. Scroll on down and take a look at the pictures of wild meeting tame for the first time.

The residents of the Animal Defense League of Texas were taken to visit the San Antonio Zoo during the lockdown

People from the Animal Defense League of Texas took several of its residents to the San Antonio Zoo. During this meeting, kittens and dogs had the chance to see and interact with wild animals like leopards, lions, giraffes, monkeys, and many others.

“All the animals were able to have such a unique experience with this event and it was enthralling to see them interact with each other. Carla, the 7-month old white lab-mix was the most intrigued by all the zoo animals.”

“Her favorite being the Giraffes, who seemed equally as curious to see such a strange animal in front of them. Our kittens were in awe of the Hippos and fish, while Ella, the 6-year old black lab-mix thoroughly enjoyed watching the gibbons swing from rope to rope,” Michelle Thorson, Development and Marketing Manager for ADL, says.

The San Antonio Zoo has faced many overwhelming challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the situation led to a decrease in revenues and fundraising support. This incredible project was made in order to engage the community and bring awareness to the issues these animal organizations care for.

ADL, the oldest, true no-kill shelter in the state of Texas, has faced many overwhelming challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. So did the San Antonio Zoo. Michelle said; “ADL and our neighbors at the San Antonio Zoo felt a shared impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in a devastating decrease in essential revenues and fundraising support. Our two organizations wanted a way to bring awareness to the unique programs we as care providers offer to our resident animals, big and small. Few are aware that both of our organizations have similar foster and enrichment programs that are vital to the health and wellbeing of our animals. Sharing this fun visit on our social media platforms was a way for us to engage with our wonderful community while offering enrichment to the pets at both the shelter and zoo.

She encourages people to lend a helping hand during these tough times. “We continue our work tirelessly to produce a life-saving performance that set new records, as with nearly all other entities, the pandemic forced the closure of ADL’s elective low-cost services such as public spay/neuter and wellness clinics, which historically generate income to fund our life-saving programs. Now more than ever we are needing additional funding support to help sustain our strategic programs and ensure we can continue to serve the animals and members of our community in need. Those in the position to help can adopt, foster, volunteer, or donate!

The San Antonio zoo also asked for people’s support in helping them get back on their feet after the unexpected closure. “Your support is more critical now than it has been in our entire 106-year history and will help keep the zoo thriving during this difficult time,” the zoo writes. Visit the San Antonio zoo’s website to offer support.

1. For those with golden heart

KikkakPattyWak

My parents split when I was in first grade. My mom met my step-dad, mark when I was in second grade. We moved in with him by the time I was in 3rd we moved into his house. He treated my siblings and me as his own since day 1. He even would watch Gilmore Girls with me and my sister every afternoon. After my mom died when I was 16, Mark didn’t make us go live with our biological dad. He continued raising us as his own. He started out as my mom’s boyfriend and became my dad, my best friend, my go-to for advice.

Mark ended up working 3 jobs while having heart failure, asthma, and diabetes. He did everything he could to provide for my sister and me. He passed away 6 days before I graduated college in 2016. It’s been a few years but I still have trouble on Father’s Day. He could have ditched us when our mom died and we didn’t have enough income. But he didn’t. He was there fighting to put food on the table. Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers who fight for their children.
