“This virtual adoption system has been a long-term vision for DAS, but the launch of this first phase of the D90 Shelter Services System could not have come at a better time,” said DAS Director Ed Jamison. “This system will not only help us continue to maintain social distancing guidelines for the comfort and safety of adopters and our staff, but it will take our tele-adoptions to the next level and increase the number of lives we save.”

DAS had an intake of nearly 40,000 pets in 2019 and continues to take pets in and process adoptions daily during the COVID-19 pandemic.
