The pandemic has forced the public into quarantine mode, and the wildlife is taking over the cities. However, shelter animals are still not fortunate enough to go out and freely move about. But recently, an Atlanta animal shelter decided to take some of their canines and felines on a trip to an aquarium, and the animals loved it.
The coronavirus phenomenon has brought almost everything to a halt. The Georgia Aquarium also got devoid of visitors because of the pandemic, but then the Atlanta Humane Society reached out to the aquarium management and arranged a trip for some of their animals.
The shelter brought two of their cutest puppies named Odie and Carmel to the aquarium for a short trip. Although being at the aquarium was a totally different and new experience for the furry creatures, but they thoroughly enjoyed having a meeting with the beluga whales, whale sharks, and other marine animals.
One week after the puppy trip, it was now time for the felines to have a taste of the aquarium’s surreal environment. The only difference was that on this occassion the number of visiting animals was increased from two to five. Also, while the puppies were interested in meeting each and every creature at the aquarium the five kittens were more interested in staring at all those colorful fish.
Both the trips were captured on camera, and the amusement and bewilderment at the faces of the adorable shelter animals while being at the aquarium was a fascinating spectacle. While the puppies and the kittens were thoroughly entertained by their stay at the aquarium, the sea creatures also seemed to welcome the guests and did not mind their presence.
According to a WHO report, it is comparatively safe for the animals to visit outdoors during the pandemic, and there is no evidence suggesting a possibility of their vulnerability to viral infections.
Here is a video about the story.
