First and foremost, I wanted to reiterate that I hope you are all coping as best as you can in these nutty times. Secondly, I wanted to remind everyone that the PPAC is open for business and is taking every possible precaution to ensure the health and safety of you, your pets, and all the staff at our clinic. We know how nuts the world seems right now. But we’re making sure we're open for business to help you with any day-to-day animal needs (or unexpected urgent ones), so there is at least one less thing for you to worry about.
Ok, now on to the promised silly animal content.
In a blog from a few weeks ago, I wrote about how pet owners are getting a lot of comfort from having a pet. But animal-based businesses and organizations have quickly realized this reality and jumped on the animal interaction bandwagon, creating virtual experiences for people to get their fill and no, I’m not talking about the Tiger King (don’t get me started). Although I’m sure there are PLENTY of similar experiences available, here are three of my personal favorites.
- Zoom with animals: “Sweet Farm, an animal sanctuary in Half Moon Bay, California, is offering people all over the world the opportunity to invite a llama, goat, cow or other farm animal to make a cameo appearance on a live video call.”
- Virtual Horse Experiences: “Horse Country farms are working on some social distancing-friendly experiences – tune in to their social channels for LIVE tours, new videos and virtual experiences while we all hunker down.” Neiiighh Way, AMIRITE?
- Watch Sheep Graze: Last but not least, here is an opportunity that is more intended to help calm people down than offer a full-on animal interaction. You can watch sheep graze in a field for 6+ hours. What could be more soothing than that?
Have any other great online pet content? Let us know! We’d love to start a collection. And otherwise, enjoy virtual experiences taken to another level of cute.
‘Til next time,
