The Pet Alliance shelter of Greater Orlando is constantly striving to find homes for dogs under their care. In an effort to help potential adopters see past breed stereotypes, the Pet Alliance team came up with the genius idea to sort their available dogs into their respective Hogwarts’ Houses. You can take the online version here.
They explain their methodology here:
“A dog who takes to learning obedience cues or quickly figures out a puzzle 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.”
The team has already sorted over 40 dogs into their houses, which has demonstrably raised adoption rates in a short time.
Wondering which house the dogs in your family belong to? Pet Alliance has an online sorting hat quiz for you to try.
We’d love to know the result you get! Share in the comments.
