Right now, everyone is a little stressed as our lives have been totally upended by the coronavirus pandemic: schools closed, businesses closed, etc. Fortunately, auto body repair has been deemed an “essential” business, and most are still open and are being hyper-vigilant about following proper sanitation practices and social distancing while serving their customers.

Also on duty are pets at the shop who provide a good dose of love, support and comic relief! Check out these pets from body shops around the country who are still reporting for duty:

Miss Maggie Mae is on the job at Precision Collision Center in Kansas City, Kan.
In reality, we are told, this is what Miss Maggie Mae does with the majority of her day.
Frank, an American bully rescue who works on the road regularly with Danyon Kirchner, business services manager, Zimmerman Auto Body Supplies and Capital Automotive Refinishing Supplies. Last week, Frank helped Danyon take paint inventory at his BASF customer W&L Subaru in Northumberland, Pa. The shop loved seeing him at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak before they paused shop visits from their staff.
 
Floki is always down to help around Showtime Collision in Running Springs, Calif.
Reina is Floki’s buddy and also pitches in at Showtime Collision.
Koda the corgi on duty at Sierra Auto Body in Grass Valley, Calif. 
We don’t know this fella’s name, but he is comforting his crew at The Shop Paint & Body in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Jaxx is a regular at Bill’s Body Shop in Ruleville, Miss.
This guy may look intimidating but he’s keeping all the employees focused at Protec Autobody & Restoration in Garrettsville, Ohio.
