SA02 - The Plight of the Big Black Dogs and Gender Myths

Oct 20, 2012 9:00am ‐ Oct 20, 2012 11:00am


Description

While working at the Washington Humane Society, Amanda Leonard became very interested in the difficulty in placing large black dogs in forever homes and the problems the Humane Society faced in their spay/neuter rates. After returning to George Washington University, to complete her master’s degree, she used her background in shelter work to research these issues. She has published her results from her study on the “big black dog syndrome” and how the myth of gender affects spaying and neutering programs. Amanda will share her research projects and discuss how these issues can affect all of our efforts to keep and encourage permanent homes for pet dogs.
