During a virtual townhall, Dains said she hopes the approach the shelter has employed during the closure will continue after it reopens.
At 7 p.m. on Monday, May 11, Long Beach Animal Care Services director Staycee Dains will preside over a virtual town hall meeting to discuss shelter practices during and after the bureau’s pandemic-related closure to the public.
In the furry sector of the community, a handful of nonprofit rescues placed a wagonload of cats, dogs and rabbits into foster homes—some are staying in them forever.
Only 14 animals remain in the care of Long Beach Animal Care Services. The rest have been either fostered or adopted.
There are only four confirmed cases of animals contracting COVID-19 in the U.S.
“There is a common misconception that Animal Control is somehow separate from Long Beach Animal Care Services … They’re both the same organization.”
