We have provided a safety net for thousands of Massachusetts animals
The mission of AniMatch is to give adoptable dogs and cats in Massachusetts a greater chance at adoption. By developing a network of animal welfare organizations throughout the state and acting as a liaison between them, we facilitate the evaluation and intrastate transfer of pets in need throughout this network - from organizations with limited resources to those that have a better ability to find dogs and cats a new family.
CANINE AND FELINE BODY LANGUARGE BEHAVIOR OBSERVATION TRAININGS:
In order to “speak the same language” we offer “Canine and Feline Body Language and Behavior Observation" training throughout the state. This is a free training and has been very well attended. Many who completed the program are now AniMatch Behavior Observers and some are Transporters. These are invaluable roles and we encourage anyone who is interested to contact us to find out about our free training. firstname.lastname@example.org.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE:
Because AniMatch believes it’s important to evaluate a dog based on behavior and not appearance, we have eliminated breed designations on our dog database so that each dog can be seen as an individual.
FOR COMMUNITIES OUTSIDE OF MASSACHUSETTS:
AniMatch wants to share our success and help save lives in other states and regions. We have created a “plug and play” program template that can be used — for free—by groups outside of Massachusetts who want to create their own version of our program. The program can be modified to meet specific needs and allow for incremental implementation. For more information, please contact email@example.com.
