Pawgwarts: Orlando shelter sorts rescue dogs into Harry Potter houses
ORLANDO, Fla. The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando recently introduced its “Pawgwarts” initiative, a way to stop labeling rescue dogs by breed. Staff members will sort dog’s inspired by the four Harry Potter sorting houses.
The shelter released a statement about why they introduced the sorting house system.
“Scientific research has proven visual identification of dog breeds is incorrect more than 70% of the time. We joined many progressive shelters around the country and removed breed labels from our shelters. To encourage people to adopt based on personality, we decided to show them for their individual behaviors and personalities.”
A dog will be sorted by personality based on a series of activities created by the shelter’s team.
