What's New?

It was a great day at SAWA's National Council on Pet Population Research Symposium November 15, 2017 in Miami, FL! Lots of new research to help shelter animals and improve the human-animal bond. We were excited to presented three studies, on the affect of photos on perceived adoptability of dogs, the shelter industry's perceptions of adoptable dog transportation programs, and reasons people visit animal shelters and their perceptions of the animals. Great day, can't wait for next year!

Training & Enrichment

Providing dogs with physical and mental stimulation is a critical factor for maintaining their behavioral health.  Enrichment activities will keep shelter dogs busy, so they are less likely to do the things we don't want them to do, while basic training makes dogs more adoptable.
