Imagine the heart-warming sight of a shelter dog going home with a family that perfectly matches his adventurous personality … a gentle, loving adult dog being hand-picked by a retired couple looking for companionship … or an energetic and playful puppy going home with the newlywed couple who will provide a lifelong home.Increasing the likelihood that shelter animals will be good matches with their new families is the underlying goal of the Meet Your Match Canine-ality & Feline-Ality Adoption Program, a program of the ASPCA®.McKamey Animal Center utilizes the Canine-ality and Feline-ality programs, further increasing the potential for successful, permanent placements for the agency’s adopted dogs and cats. The program — which includes a Canine-ality/Feline-ality behavior assessment of each animal and a brief survey of each adopter — results in a color-coded matchmaking system that brings compatible companions together. The result is a reduction in the number of adopted animals returned to agency because they aren’t a good fit.
