Far too many cats and dogs are surrendered to shelters because owners do not have the resources to correct a behavioral issue. Currently, there is a meeting of experts convening in San Diego to help address this issue. If pet owners have resources on how to address and correct behavioral issues, we will significantly reduce the 3-4 million shelter pets that are euthanized each year. If you are struggling with a pet issue, please seek help from a professional before giving up on your pet. Your local animal shelter should have a listing of behaviorists that can help out. Or contact me and I’ll connect you with a professional.
