For the first time in history, shelter celebrates empty kennels

Something incredible has happened at a Florida animal shelter…for the first time in history, one of the shelter’s three kennels at the Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control shelter were emptied. It is welcome news for those overwhelmed by the constant barrage of negative pandemic related information of late.

On Tuesday, the Friends of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control created a Facebook post to share the good news, writing:

An incredible and joyful thing happened today….For the first time in the history of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, we have completely emptied one of our three dog kennels!

With words of praise for those who help make the empty shelter possible:

This amazing milestone was made possible by the help and support of our entire community! Thank you to the shelter staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to care for, find homes for, and advocate for the pets who come through these doors; thank you to our incredible foster parents who open their heart and homes to thousands of pets each year; thank you to everyone who has opted to adopt a shelter pet – whether it be here or from any of the other amazing organizations out there; thank you to our placement partner organizations far and wide – without them, this would not be possible.

And a request to keep the momentum going:

Let’s keep the momentum going and good vibes flowing! We still have dogs available for adoption or foster in our main kennel, along with a few adoptable cats, two adoptable horses, and Charlotte the adoptable pig.
