Animal shelters throughout the country have experienced an increase in adoptions during the COVID-19 pandemic as pet lovers seek out an isolation buddy to keep them company and provide comfort.
While the Goulburn Mulwaree Animal Shelter has not seen a spike in adoptions specifically related to coronavirus, there has been an "unprecedented demand" for pets over the last six to 12 months.
Currently, there are no animals up for adoption at the facility.
A council spokesperson said the shelter was "regularly left with no animals available."
"This is a truly exceptional result for both the shelter and its furry friends who have gone on to find their forever homes," they said.
"[This is] due to the commitment of shelter staff and the community supporting the facility."

Mixed-breed pup Ronnie was recently adopted from the animal shelter by a Goulburn couple.
The couple said they "may have bought into the rescue pet fad" brought on by coronavirus.
The animal shelter is currently closed to the public however community members are still able to attend to pick up animals and view those available for adoption by contacting 02 4823 4444 and arranging an appointment to attend.
