Life in animal shelters and rescue centers can be very difficult for stray dogs that have been rescued. While this type of facility gives them a chance to be fed and secure while waiting for someone to give them a permanent home, not everyone makes it.
Hundreds of dogs are put to sleep every year because the shelters don’t have the resources to keep them all. Thankfully, there are also many programs that exist to give these dogs an opportunity to get a new life and a purpose outside of the dangers of street life and shelters.
The aircraft manufacturer company Boeing initiated a straightforward and effective program to rehabilitate and train rescued dogs so that they can have a new purpose and better life, and so that we could all have more security ourselves. Their staff, such as Melissa Larsen, who discusses in the video, picks out the best candidates at animal shelters and introduces them to the program after adopting them.
The best part of the program, though, is that the program basically consists of living with other dogs and playing fetch using cans with special odor in them. Maybe if I one day look for another career, I would consider animal training; what a happy job, indeed. Enjoy this interesting video just below. Everyone deserves a second chance, don’t you think? Three cheers for Boeing and this fantastic program.
