While your new pet may turn out to be the perfect lady or gentlemen from day one, it is more likely that he/she will take a little while to adjust to new surroundings and routines. Be patient and positive. Yelling or hitting an animal in order to correct unacceptable behavior will only make matters worse. Most behavior problems can be straightened out with patience and consistent application of a few simple training techniques. As part of the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society’s commitment to finding forever homes for our animals we will follow-up with each adopter after taking your pet home.
