No, People Are Not Returning Pandemic Dogs in Droves

Description (Dublin Core)

This article explains that we should not be alarmed by the headlines that state that pandemic pets are returning to shelters as their owners return to work. The numbers just don't support that supposition. While abandonment rates are on the rise, they appear to simply be returning to pre-covid rates.
