SAFER: AVERAGE HOME
Cassidy was brought to the shelter as a stray, so there is no history or known owner information. Upon intake it was stated Cassidy allowed handling. Cassidy Came into the assessment room loose and friendly, he was social towards the assessor. During SAFER Cassidy had a loose body posture when interacting with the assessor, allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue. Cassidy was relaxed during the tag interaction, and during the resource portion of the assessment. Cassidy was easy to handle when engaged with the item. Cassidy appears to be sociable, and did not display any behavior concerns, so the department feels she can be suitable for an “Average” adopter.
