With coronavirus infections on the rise, seniors and those with pre-existing conditions continue to social distance.
But as many are isolated, nonprofit Animal Farm Foundation is making sure they still have fun and friendly interactions with pets by setting up virtual visits.
“When the pets come on they really perk up” said Christie Purks, one of about a thousand people volunteering with Animal Farm Foundation’s Pets Together Program.
During the virtual visits residents interact with pets ranging from dogs, cats, to even goats and horses. They’ve also have pet visits with little critters as well.
