This shows a Palm Beach animal shelter kennel totally empty and the staff celebrating. The number of staff there seems to be quite large so it must be a large shelter. It shows one of their three kennels. The video was posted to Facebook but it seems to have been removed because it was used by the news media who I guess wanted exclusive rights to it. The kennel that we see I believe serves as the shelter's stray housing and adoption overflow unit. They have animals for adoption at their main kennel.

It is always brilliant to see these images and videos because it means that a lot of animals have been rescued and rehomed. It represents success in a way although behind that, the back story, there is failure because in a perfect world, in a truly successful world with respect to humankind's relationship with animals, there would be no animal shelters! That is an ideal. It is unattainable but arguably animal shelters are a symptom of failure.

I believe the success is down to Covid-19! An increase in adoptions over the lockdowns. Amazing that there is at least one brilliant silver lining to the pandemic. There have been some downsides though such as a surge in puppy mills to feed new adopters.

The video on this page may well stop working in the future. This is because it is held on another website and the administrators of that website might delete the video in due course. In which case, it will disappear on this page as well.
