In this interview I speak with Larissa Wohl, Animal Rescue Expert, about animal rescue conditions and challenges as we end sheltering in place and adjust to life one year after the Covid-19 Pandemic started. Wohl discusses the disadvantages of owner release situations and why it is important owners do everything they can to keep adopted animals in their homes.
