COVID and Pets: Facts, Dos and Don’ts

At this time (July, 2, 2020), the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has reported a very small number of animals infected with the disease that causes COVID-19. According to the CDC, it does appear COVID-19 can spread from people to animals, mostly after close interaction with people positive for COVID-19. The good news is, the risk of pets spreading COVID-19 to people is low.

Petland urges you to follow the guidelines of the CDC and your local health authorities. Please do not surrender or euthanize pets out of fear. The chances of contracting COVID-19 from pets is not a serious threat at this time. Follow the federal government’s suggestions below and continue to limit interaction with other people.
