Adopt or foster a pet to help shelters during coronavirus pandemic

Animal Rescue groups need help with adoptions, fosters, and donations now more than ever. They are getting a lifeline from companies who’ve upped the ante for the “good boys and girls,” while we all make the most of being together at home.

Fox News reports that Busch is giving 3 months of beer to people that adopt or foster a dog during coronavirus pandemic.

Busch Beer is teaming up with Midwest Animal Rescue to help place dogs into foster or permanent homes. To help incentivize people into bringing a furry friend home, the beer company is offering a prize called “Busch Beer for 3 months.”

“During these uncertain and lonelier times, people need an escape: cue the cute puppy memes and photos,” a spokesperson for Busch in a statement to People. “But as much as we need those cute puppy pics to help get us through social distancing, it’s actually them who need us.”

“Social distancing is better with a furry friend by your side and a cold beer in your hand,” a spokesperson for Busch told People.

Free beer and a fur buddy? Don’t mind if we do.
