FOMCA's pet behavior counselor, Pia Cash, has been helping homeless animals for almost ten years. Starting out fostering dogs as a hobby after her days working as a middle school teacher, it wasn't long before she was working in an animal shelter full time and helping create new animal behavior support programs. These programs not only benefited the animals in the shelter, they also offered support to all pet owners in the the community and newly adopted shelter dogs and cats. Counseling the public on pet behavior problems through the behavior helpline was something that stood out to her as a very easy and effective way for pet owners to get the help they needed. Pia noticed a need for a similar program in Madison County and has joined forces with FOMCA to provide Friends of Madison County's Pet Behavior Helpline, a free service to residents of Madison County.
SOME ELBOW ROOM FOR OUR FURRY FRIENDS
Friends of Madison County Animals is starting a new program - we will begin to build fences for dog owners who would like to give their pets some elbow room and play room and get their dogs out of a permanent chaining situation.
