A Florida animal shelter is getting a lot of attention for its new effort to find dogs forever homes. They created a system of sorting their animals by Harry Potter houses known as “Pawgwarts.”
The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is sorting each animal into "houses" inspired by the Harry Potter series.
The shelter says it's no longer labeling them by breed. Instead, they are labeling them by the animal's personality.
"To encourage people to adopt based on personality, we decided to show them for their individual behaviors and personalities," the shelter's website reads.
"For example, a dog who takes to learning obedience cues or quickly figures out a puzzle to has the KNOWLEDGE of a Ravenclaw. A small dog who has the determination to climb the agility A-Frame possesses the AMBITION of Slytherin house. Our affectionate happy-to-know-you dogs embody the FRIENDLINESS of a Hufflepuff and a dog who embraces change and new things has the BRAVERY known to all Gryffindors."
