A shelter can be scary for some pets and lead to behavior problems.
A new program at the Pet Resource Center is helping animals become ready for adoption.
Maya is a stray dog who was found two weeks ago. When the 2-year-old puppy first came to the Pet Resource Center, she was a nervous wreck.
The PR China has converted three rooms for dogs like Maya into so-called Real Life Rooms.
Dogs who are socialized or have medical needs are brought into rooms, which are furnished with furniture, toys, and ambient music. In this way, the staff will learn what the dog needs to get used to the adoption.
