The Austin Humane Society is one of several shelters that have started a hand-feeding, enrichment, and training program for adoptable dogs. The results are easy to see—a kennel that’s a pleasant environment for both people and pets. It’s a good illustration of what happens when enrichment—a key tenet of new guidelines developed by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians— is emphasized for shelter animals.
