Caring for Senior Dogs: How to improve their “Golden Years”

We want our pets to live forever and will do all we can to keep them healthy and happy. In order to do so, there are many things we need to consider as our pets age. Their eyesight gets poor, their hearing diminishes, and/or they suffer from arthritis as well as experience other health problems and diseases which can greatly affect their ability to function.

CHEYENNE ANIMAL SHELTER CHOSEN FOR LIFE-SAVING
CAT PAWSITIVE PROGRAM

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter has been selected by The Jackson Galaxy Project (JGP), a Signature Program of GreaterGood.org, to participate in the Summer 2018 Semester of Cat Pawsitive, a life-saving initiative that introduces positive-reinforcement training to cats in shelters and rescues. Supported by the Petco Foundation and Halo® pet food, this innovative training program for cats aims to increase feline adoption rates and maintain cat “mojo.”
Jackson Galaxy (star of the television show My Cat from Hell on Animal Planet, and founder of JGP) developed Cat Pawsitive with a team of feline behavior experts. Highlights of the program include:
  • Maintaining cat “adoptability” and feline social skills by enriching cats’ day-to-day lives
  • Increasing adoptions
  • Decreasing length of stay
  • Engaging and empowering volunteers and staff
  • Showing potential adopters that cats are cool and can even be trained!

The Cat Pawsitive program is designed to keep adoptable cats mentally and physically active in a shelter or rescue environment. The focus is on fun, positive reinforcement-based training sessions that go beyond playtime-as-usual to help cats maintain their mojo and connect more quickly with potential adopters. From teaching high fives and head bumps to “sit” and “come when called,” caregivers at Cat Pawsitive participating organizations engage with cats in a brand new way to really help cats to “click” with adopters.

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter’s Behaviorist, Brooke Byelich, applied for the grant opportunity, “I’m really excited to get started on this training!” said Byelich. “We have a strong program for training and socializing dogs. We’re hoping this will bring the same opportunity to our cats.”
