My idea for the Smile Challenge is that people could adopt an animal from a shelter. Although people are already doing this, it would be amazing if more could. It would help shelters, so they could free up more space so more animals can be taken in. it would also give people a new companion to train and to love during quarantine. Signatures and adoption fees can be done electronically, and the animal itself can be put into a crate or cage and given to the person who is adopting them. When the adopters take the animal home, they'll have a lot of time to train it, given that the general population is stuck at home with nothing to do. Now, this does not apply to the workers who still have to go out and work, as they are busy working and may be exposed to the disease. But for the general population who are staying home, this may be a great idea.
