Friends of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control said on a Facebook post that for the first time in history their kennel is completely empty.

A video shows shelter staff wearing their masks, clapping and cheering in celebration.

Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control thanked shelter workers, foster parents and all those who adopted a pet.

According to a supervisor at the shelter, only "emergency surrenders" of animals, including cruelty and cases of domestic violence, are being accepted at the moment.

The shelter is not aggressively picking up strays.
