The Ginny Project

The problem of pet overpopulation is striking when you consider that millions of cats and dogs are euthanized each year because they don’t have a home.

After visiting a Hawaii animal shelter with an innovative program that allows visitors to take dogs on a day-long field trip before making a decision to adopt, I was inspired to do some research into pet adoption: are there ways to improve the process and make it easier for people to adopt pets?

(I dubbed this work The Ginny Project in honor of the Australian Cattle Dog named Ginny that I took on a field trip when I visited the Kauai Humane Society.)
