Having Behavioral Challenges
with Your Pet?
Capital Area Humane Society’s Pet Behavior Hotline Can Help
Behavior problems are the number one reason animals are abandoned,
abused or surrendered to shelters. Through funding provided by
BarkPark, the Capital Area Humane Society has launched a Pet Behavior
Hotline to help pet owners correct behavior challenges and reduce the
number of pets surrendered to local animal shelters.
The Pet Behavior Hotline offers pet owners instructions on how to
modify common behavior problems such as hyperactivity, housebreaking,
crate training, socialization and destructive chewing with dogs as
well as litter box problems, spraying and destructive scratching with
cats. The hotline also provides information on introducing new pets to
the household and living with multiple animals.
This automated service is available free of charge, 24 hours a
day by calling (614) 777-0567.
Funding for this project was provided by BarkPark, a charitable
organization providing financial support and educational opportunities
to nonprofit animal welfare organizations whose mission is to rescue,
provide medical treatment, and re-home abused and abandoned animals.
