It's no secret that COVID-19 has left some people sad, bored. This leads people to looking for new friends, and sine that was a bit hard to do with things being closed people have turned to pets.

According to Shelter Animals Count, pet adoptions rose 15% in the year 2020.

The group, which tracks about 500 rescue organizations across the country, recorded 26,000 more pet adoptions in 2020 than in the year before — a rise of about 15 percent.

It's not just house pets either! Farm animals are also seeing a rise in purchase especially chickens in particular. Even my family jumped on that trend, and now they'll have plenty of eggs to color on Easter.

My family also bought some ducks just last week and has rescued a few cats. I myself have gotten a few pets too including a kitten and my loyal office mice. It looks like it's not just the QC, but all of America is looking at getting a new best friend.

It's important to remember before you get a pet they are a big commitment. It's a decent amount of work just to keep a fish alive (rest in peace, Keanu Reefs.) You should never just buy a pet spontaneously, but once you and the family are fully prepared to get a new pet, now is a great time!
