A good time to adopt a pet …Animal shelters all across the country are struggling right now -- with workers and potential adopters not coming in because of social distancing. But many shelters have set up “social distancing-friendly adoptions” by setting up individual adoption appointments, offering webcam “meet and greets,” and even drive-up adoptions. Now is the perfect time to help these shelters – and have some great company while you’re at home – by adopting or fostering a pet. (Glamour)  

Speaking of adopting or fostering a pet ...Cat food brand Smalls is encouraging people to adopt cats right now through their new "Foster With Smalls" initiative. If you foster a cat while you're staying at home, the company will give you 30 days of food as well as some cat toys. "If you are able to foster a cat during this time, we're here for you," Smalls wrote on their Instagram page. "Being a short-term foster to a cat in need is a great way to help while staying safe at home (and the kitty cuddles are a solid bonus). Smalls is proud to sponsor new cat foster families with 30 days of human-grade nutrition, care, and play products. DM us or emailcommunity@smallsforsmalls.com with relevant paperwork, and we'll take care of the rest." (Pop Sugar)

One more animal story ...How happy are your pets that you are staying home with them? Seems a Dachshund named Rolo was so happy his humans were home with him that he actually sprained his tail -- from wagging so much. (Insider)

See 10, Do 10 ...Social distancing isn’t stopping fitness fanatics from working out. Plenty of gyms are providing free workouts for people to do right in their living rooms, and Arnold Schwarzenegger even made his no gym workout routine available on Instagram for everyone, including beginner and expert options. If that’s still not enough motivation for you, look no further than your own social media feed. The “See 10, Do 10” challenge is making the rounds on both Facebook and Instagram -- and all you have to do is take a photo or video of yourself doing 10 pushups, or 10 of any exercise, and tag friends you want to challenge. It’s not only helping people stay connected, but it’s motivating people to actually workout From burpees to squats, you could get a new challenge every day if you keep the chain going. (Today)
