Over the years there have been many advancements in the way dogs are housed and cared for at shelters. They have improved shelter environments for their guests, like better buildings, more room, and better amenities for the dogs housed their. Due to the heightened need for shelters it has drawn a need for more behaviorists, trainers, and volunteers to provide the proper mental and physical stimulation. This results in happier dogs and higher adoption rates nationwide.
Some long time shelters are really expanding their capacities for care in that they not only have a large shelter, they can have a grooming center, veterinary center, and play areas all at the main site all to cater to the needs of the pets that stay there.
When considering adopting take the time to go and meet your potential new furry friend and talk to the staff let them know your wants and needs and let them help make a perfect match.
