Shelters across the US are struggling to take in a growing number of dogs and cats.
Some pets adopted early in the pandemic are being sent back as owners slowly return to normal life.
The financial impact of Covid-19 as well as a puppy boom due to a pause in spaying and neutering during the pandemic are also adding to the strain.
