The Riverside County Animal Services shared a video on their Instagram page showing empty cages in their shelter. They celebrated the spike of adoption, saying, “We have a completely empty adoption center.”

They also thanked everyone who adopted a pet over the past few days saying, “We cleared the shelter! All of our adoptable animals have been adopted! Thank you to everyone who adopted or fostered an animal.”

But even if the animal shelter has been cleared out, staff have pointed out that this does not mean that they will not have any pets up for adoption the next few days. They also encouraged others to adopt pets instead, and that they are willing to help them if they do so.
