How the Maryland SPCA is Coping – and How You can Help

0

Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping. 

The following is an update from Andy Beres, Director of Marketing and Communications for the Maryland SPCA, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
For the safety of our clients and staff, we temporarily closed our facilities to the public on March 23. However, we’ve continued to support our community. We recently launched a virtual adoption process, allowing us to place pets in forever homes while observing social distancing per CDC guidelines. We’re also offering virtual training classes via Zoom.

Additionally, we’re providing community pet food assistance; supporting our fosters with food, supplies, and vet care; and providing free phone consultations.

Our 25th annual Festival for the Animals was postponed until September 26, 2020. For the time being, we’ve also suspended our humane education classes, spay/neuter services, and veterinary care to the public.

The following is an update from Dr. David Buscher, D.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl.Ac.,
Doctor of Acupuncture at Very Well Acupuncture, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
In the face of the unknown risks, we decided to close the clinic completely on March 18th. During that time, we changed our clinic management software to a service that allows us to conduct telemedicine appointments. “Telemedicine acupuncture” may sound strange, but it’s actually really lovely and empowering. On a secure video call, we talk about the client’s pain or concerns and then guide them through a series of acupressure, self-massage, and breathing exercises.

Now, having received best practices for disinfection from our national organizations, we have reopened the clinic for limited office visits, as well.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
Like everyone else in our state, we had to react quickly to this situation, and we have done a complete 180 in a few short weeks. We have allowed the majority of our non-fulfillment staff to work remotely, and our fulfillment representatives are wearing masks and gloves and practicing social distancing to stay safe while filling orders.

In addition, we have worked very hard and fast to design and sell new products, including essential items like face masks, neck gaiters, surgical caps and bandanas, as well as new t-shirt designs to try to help keep spirits up in this stressful time.

The following is an update from the Baltimore Museum of Industry on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
Thanks to our great education staff, we were able to pivot rather quickly and adapt several of our activities for “visitors” to use online.  Industry-themed word finds, trivia questions, craft projects and such have been created, along with virtual tours of many of our galleries can be found on our website and are all free of charge. We also moved our weekly preschool program, Wee Workers, onto Facebook where each Tuesday, Ms. Gayle, an incredible museum teacher, presents a book and a craft related to a new gallery or industry each week.  https://www.thebmi.org/visit/visit-from-home/

Unfortunately, Choral Arts has canceled the remaining performances of the 2019-20 season. We were, however, very excited to have had the opportunity to convert our in-person annual Gala event into the Choral Arts Online Auction, and we were successful in surpassing our $30,000 fundraising goal for our education and outreach programs.
