Behavior Helpline

Sometimes just a simple bit of advice can make all the difference and that is what our Behavior Helpline hopes to achieve. Our mission is to help pet owners understand and improve their pet’s behavior with the ultimate goal of keeping dogs and cats in their homes and out of the shelter.

Sarah and SamLitter box problems, barking, furniture scratching and house training are common concerns and our specially trained employees are available by phone or email to help. Our mission is to help pet owners understand and improve their pet’s behavior with the ultimate goal of keeping dogs and cats in their homes and out of the shelter. Although many dogs and cats lose their homes because of problem behaviors, most of these problems can be prevented or solved with some basic lessons in manners or minor training tips. Let us help you understand why pets do what they do.

In addition to our helpline, we offer free classes on pet ownership. Our Doggy 101 and Cat Conversation classes are held monthly, are open to the public and free of charge. Need a refresher on house training, crate training, adding a new pet to your home – we’ve got advice, handouts and plenty of time for question and answer. Check our Schedule of Events for info on the next scheduled class.
