Well panicking is DEFINITELY not the answer. That just sends stress hormones and if you’re dealing with depression and/or anxiety? It makes everything worse. Here’s a short list of things you can do immediately to calm your mind:
Look at these beautiful loving animals! At the time of this writing, these are probably already gone. Animals who had no say in being brought into the world and no say in where they end up. They have no voice. We must be their voices.
These animals don’t have the choice. They were surrendered by owners who couldn’t care for them.

Here are some suggestions for you to be mindful of those around you and to help cut down on the spread of all germs and viruses, not just our current disease under the microscope.
