The Halo Pet Foundation is thrilled that Maddie’s Fund has awarded a research grant to the Center for Canine Behavior Studies (CCBS). Halo loves that CCBS is dedicated to understanding the behavior of dogs to deepen the bond between dogs and people, so that more dogs stay with their families.
Halo can’t wait to see the results of CCBS’s inaugural study which hopes to survey more than 10,000 dog owners. In the meantime, we work to better understand dog behavior ourselves by reading the latest posts from the Chief Scientific Officer for CCBS, Dr. Nicholas Dodman, on the Halo blog.
This isn’t the first time that the Halo Pet Foundation and Maddie’s Fund have worked together to help pets. In 2013 both organizations worked with the Humane Society of the United States and the Ad Council to launch the online video series “Meet My Shelter Pet.” In the series, celebrities spoke about their own shelter pets to encourage others to adopt a pet in need. You can watch the videos over at The Shelter Pet Project’s website.
