At a recent Playing for Life seminar with Aimee Sadler held at Indianapolis Animal Care and Control, there was no doubt about it: lives got saved the day play groups started. By observing the dogs during a play session, the staff and volunteers got to see an entirely different side to many of the dogs in their care.
Not only did this change their fate within the shelter, but rescues watching the play sessions were able to select dogs to pull for their programs based on what they were observing as well. It's time to rethink what we thought we knew for sure about shelter dog behavior. When we do, we can save lives!
