TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With people off-work and staying at home, they might have more time for a furry friend.

The Leon County Human Society is performing adoptions a little different.

They are requesting you go on-line and fill out an application, then an adoption consultant will contact you. Once contacted, you will make an appointment to see the animals.

They are asking you give them a couple days since they're busy right now.

"The adoptions have been moving out just as well as the animals have been coming in," said Lisa Glunt, the executive director of the Leon County Humane Society. "So we're really happy with the community's response and it really is an ideal time for people to welcome a family member into their home."

They have created a food bank for animals, where you can get cat or dog food if needed.

They are actively accepting donations of wet or dry cat or dog food and even kitty litter.
