Did you know that there is a total of 2.6 million cats and dogs euthanized each year in shelters, because they cannot get adopted quickly enough? I want to lessen that number significantly, so that those animals can have a better-than-nothing chance at finding their forever home. Pima Paws for Life is a not-for-profit, no-kill organization that shelters up to 35 dogs and cats at any given time; they have one building for dogs and another designated for cats. I strive to help rescue animals overcome common behavioral issues, such as anxiety and possessiveness over food. My goal is to create a method that every shelter can adapt for animals with behavioral issues, so that people can see their true personalities irrespective of the animals' backgrounds. By conducting one-on-one training, and through a series of observational testing, hopefully these animals will overcome their adoption barriers. My method could help shelter animals from any shelter across the nation get adopted more quickly; each one is one fewer animal on death row. Not everyone understands how important it is for these animals to get adopted, so I will conduct my own statistical analysis on which dogs and cats are given the most attention and this will help put into light any bias against specific breeds or characteristics.
