RYDE curtails rides

Based on the Santa Clara County order for seniors to remain at
home, a local ride-share service for elderly residents is
curtailing its services while the “shelter in place” order is
in effect.

During this time, RYDE will only be providing non-emergency
medical transport and delivering food from West Valley Community
Services’ food pantry program. The ride-share service will only
sign up new clients who need non-emergency medical transport; RYDE
will follow up with all other applicants after COVID-19 has
passed.

For more information, contact RYDE coordinator Sam Sloan at
669-220-0831 or RYDEinfo@wvcommunityservices.org.

Pet fosterers needed

In response to Santa Clara County’s mandate to shelter in
place, Humane Society Silicon Valley March 17 temporarily
suspended adoptions and other services that require direct contact
with the public.

The Humane Society is moving shelter animals into foster homes
to make space to support their rescue partners while the “shelter
in place” order is in effect.

“With the suspension of public adoptions, we urgently need
more foster volunteers on an ongoing basis,” the nonprofit said
in a statement. It is crucial that we add enough capacity to
continue serving as a lifeline for other shelters in need.”

Those interested in fostering an adoptable animal should fill
out the survey at https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5508265/New-Foster-Interest.
