As part of our ongoing effort to give every animal their best chance at a happily ever after, we created our Hope Program. The specific point of this program is to help dogs that need a little training become more adoptable. To do this, we reached out to local dog trainer Melinda Ellis. She was willing to donate some of her time each week to come to the shelter and train Kasey, one of our long term dogs. Her training really paid off because Kasey has been adopted and is loving life in his new home! Melinda worked with Kasey to help correct his problem behaviors and turn him into the perfect dog for anyone’s home! Now she is working with a few other dogs at the shelter that need a little help with their behavior. It’s really making all the difference in their lives! If anyone else is looking for help training their dog, follow this link to contact Melinda about your training options.
