Dedicated to improving the welfare of homeless dogs cared for by humane organizations, animal control facilities and rescue groups, the Center for Shelter Dogs is a free program of the Animal Rescue League in Boston and provides expert knowledge through workshops and other educational offerings.
Dr. Amy Marder is a Clinical Behaviorist and leads the Center, which draws on the expertise of its staff to incorporate clinical medicine and epidemiology into its strategies, establishing a world-class program on behalf of shelter dogs.
We had the great honor of interviewing Dr. Amy Marder, and talking about the innovative Match-Up II Shelter Dog Rehoming Program, as well as the most common behavioral issues of shelter dogs and how rescues and other animal welfare groups can learn to improve every dog’s life in a shelter through Match-Up II Online.

Yurda attended the Match-Up II Online Webinar with Dr. Amy Marder, and found that Dr. Marder and her team have designed a program which is not only very effective but also easy to use [It’s a free Webinar – and I was astonished at how detailed and elaborate it was. A team of professionals and experts have come together to create an extremely well-thought-out program. – Yurda].
