Rio de Janeiro City Hall performs Live for animal adoption during social isolation

Performed by: Rio de Janeiro City Hall

Country: Brazil

In July 2020, the City of Rio de Janeiro, through the department for Animal Welfare held an Adoption Live on Facebook, in which it featured 50 dogs and cats rescued that are available for adoption.

The new adoption method launched by the city was aimed at protecting people during the Covid-19 outbreak. Before social isolation, they ran parks and squares with its adoption campaign. However, to avoid crowds, the animals started to be presented live, with a video of the rescue of each one and explanations about their history, their behaviour etc.

To adopt, those interested should follow the Live and go through an interview. If approved, the animal is delivered to the adopter’s home, already neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and with an identification microchip.
