Walk through most animal shelters (and vet hospitals where they board animals) and the noise can be deafening. Animals are stressed out, scared, even terrified, and are making lots of noise barking, crying, and other sounds to indicate their distress. I also believe that animals are not dummies. At high kill shelters, the animals KNOW that they are going to be killed and/or that is what is on the agenda. Animals know the difference between loving people and abusive ones and want to escape the abuse.
so what would happen if this music was played in shelters throughout the USA ??? if your local shelter is not listed, why not donate a CD to them today? It is FREE to shelters and for $5 shipping you can donate one.
am glad to see that Marin Humane and Mendocino Humane both have the music… I got some sent to Best Friends for the Vicktory dogs, now what about the Monterey SPCA, NJ SPCA, and Villalobos?
this music has been increasing adoption rates in over 1,500 shelters/rescues worldwide.
The Through a Dog’s Ear Shelter/Rescue Program offers an hour of clinically tested classical piano music free to dog advocacy groups, such as animal shelters and dog rescues. The music provided isMusic to Calm Your Canine Companion, Vol 2. The qualifying factor for free CDs is a non-profit facility that temporarily houses five or more dogs for adoption or placement that has a music system of moderate quality or better.
The 2002 research of noted animal behaviorist, Deborah Wells, Ph.D. (Belfast, N. Ireland), proved that classical music had the strongest relaxation effect on shelter dogs when compared to other musical styles.
There are also CD’s for especially fearful dogs with phobias such as those who are afraid of thunderstorms, fireworks and NOISE.
Does your dog suffer from a fear of thunderstorms? Does his anxiety level increase when the storm clouds roll in? Thunderstorm phobia is a very common condition among dogs all over the world. The terror that results can be an incredibly distressing, debilitating problem not only for dogs, but also for their owners who feel powerless to help. This groundbreaking desensitization tool will teach your dog to associate positive feelings with thunderstorms rather than feeling fearful, and will help to gradually reduce your dog’s fear when exposed to these sounds. When used properly and implemented in conjunction with the behavioral modification protocols included in the CD liner notes, you have an excellent chance of rehabilitating your thunder-phobic dog and preventing thunder-phobia from ever developing in younger dogs.
Action Alert: Please ask Virginia officials to repeal PETA’s shelter designation since they do NOT shelter animals, and kill a majority of the animals they supposedly rescue.
Since employees of “animal shelters” are the only non-veterinarians authorized by Virginia law to kill animals, removing PETA’s designation as a shelter will put the brakes on PETA killing.
