What is your organization doing about COVID-19?

During this trying time, animals need us more than ever.  Is your organization looking for foster homes? Do you have a pet food pantry? How is your organization coping?
MAC would like to compile a list of resources, as well as tips, for shelters/rescues as well as the general public.
Please email us with any needs, tips or links and we will post what we can!
