In order to continue to find forever homes for dogs in need, Rescue organizations across the country are conducting virtual interviews with hopeful adopters. Although social distancing is preventing many future dog owners from meeting pups face-to-snout, Rescues are reporting that these video interviews are being conducted in the same way they would in person. "We talk about their household and we talk about expectations; it’s the same counseling experience as usual, with the same questions and same suggestions, just socially distant," says Maranda Weathermon of West Valley City Animal Shelter in Utah.
