The Penny Process

We created an innovative system free for shelters that we call "The Penny Process". This process will help shelters with fearful animals that do not present well in a cage or kennel.  They are the animals who are fearful, stressed and scared in the shelter environment but are very different when in a more natural environment. Even though the stressed animal looks one way in their cage or kennel, our process shows potential adopters the animal's true personality giving them a better chance to be adopted.

The innovative system for faster adoption will benefit:
- The animals during their stay! Less time in cages equals a happier potential pet.
- The shelter! Time is money. A faster adoption rate means less cost and more savings for the shelter to help other animals in need.
- The new pet owners! Adoptive parents will have a better understanding of how the animal behaves in a less stressful setting. This will also help minimize the number of pets that get brought back to the shelter.

Opening Cages hopes to dramatically increase the number of animals adopted out of shelters and into their forever homes over the next five years in our local area. Then we will start to focus on helping animals in shelters nationally with our systems.  

If you know a shelter that could benefit from this free service, they can Contact Us here for more information.

Along with higher adoption rates, we are aiming to also increase the number of foster care providers as well as supporting existing foster parents through our mobile app. Our mobile app is also for every pet owner to help them keep track of all their pets records and health!


Opening Cages has so much potential to grow nationally and eventually internationally helping animals all over the world by opening one cage at a time!
