The Center for Shelter Dogs

Behavioral issues are a leading cause of relinquishment of animals.  Resources are available for shelters to help them in treating these problems.

Maddie’s Institute have put together a series of videos by Dr. Sheila Segurson d’Arpino DACVB, Senior Applied Animal Behaviorist for the Center for Shelter Dogs in Boston.  In these videos she discusses how to manage behavior problems in shelter dogs.

Finding appropriate homes for pets that have been relinquished is a daunting task.  The Center for Shelter Dogs (a program of the Animal Rescue League of Boston) have a website where they have put together important information for shelters.  It is designed to help with managing the animal’s welfare and management of behavior issues while in the shelter.
