Bird adopted at Arlington Animal Services

Dogs, cats, a lop-eared rabbit, a chicken and even the beautiful talking (bilingual!) Conure bird pictured above found new homes through adoption at Animal Services during this novel coronavirus.

The first phases of shelter operations during the pandemic have been limited to pet adoptions by appointment only, but beginning Monday, June 1, 2020, the shelter’s adoption mall will begin receiving guests, no more than 10 at a time, to view and meet with adoptable pets.

Further details about the reopening process are provided below.
