Meet Your Match® is a program of the ASPCA®.


Meet Your Match®

Meet Your Matchâ„¢Have you heard about this innovative new method for matching cats and dogs with potential adopters? The program's Adopter Survey and Canine-ality™, Puppy-ality™, or Feline-ality™ Assessment and fun color-coding system fit together like the pieces of a puzzle, creating picture-perfect adoptions for shelter animals and their new owners.

It’s fun and it’s got serious science behind it. Developed by the ASPCA® and Emily Weiss, Ph.D., C.A.sA.B., the program uses proven behavior assessments to predict how a shelter dog, puppy, or cat may behave in his or her new home for the first several weeks. The assessments are used with innovative adopter surveys to match adopters with appropriate animals.
