This is partly due to the fact that, out of an abundance of caution related to the COVID-19 crisis across New York City, we closed the ASPCA Adoption Center to the public and worked hard to move the majority of the animals in our care into foster homes, Bershadker explained.

Weve definitely had an increased interest in adoptions, said Christina Hill, communications director for the Humane Society.

A good idea will keep you awake during the morning, but a great idea will keep you awake during the night.
Light plays a very important role in helping us to feel alert and awake, so when we wake up during the dark period, that's not our body's natural desire, and so to help with that, make sure to be exposed to sufficient bright light during the day, especially during the morning, to help with those feelings of alertness.
