Shirley Moore is the President and Founder of
Save A Dog, Inc., a Massachusetts-based
dog rescue and adoption agency incorporated in 1999.
Shirley and her husband, Dave, ran the agency out of their home for the first ten years, and then moved
the operation to 604 Boston Post Road in Sudbury, MA. Together Shirley and Dave, with the help of dozens
of volunteers, have rescued and rehomed thousands of abandoned dogs over the past 13 years. Shirley and Dave
used their management experience to successfully build Save A Dog into the humane society that it is today.
Over the years that they lived with literally thousands of dogs, they immersed themselves in dog behavior both
through first-hand experience and by attending many workshops on dog training and canine behavior. Both taught
dog obedience courses and rehabilitated dogs with difficult behavioral problems. Shirley uses her background and
skills to select adoptable dogs for those who choose to adopt a dog, rather than buy.
Shirley is a professionally trained Homeopath and uses this gentle system of medicine to treat the rescued dogs
who reside at Save A Dog and provides free consultations to pet owners who cannot afford traditional veterinary
medicine. Shirley discovered homeopathy after doing search and rescue of abandoned dogs and cats in New Orleans
following Hurricane Katrina. She developed a case of ringworm that was unresponsive to conventional medicine, but
cleared up in a couple of short days using an over-the-counter homeopathic remedy. This sparked Shirley's interest,
but the clincher was when she and others witnessed the remarkable results of homeopathy on a puppy suffering from a
bee sting. "The pup was lethargic when she was brought to me by her foster mom," says Shirley. "Her muzzle
was three times its normal size, she was covered in welts, and her eyes were swollen shut. Within ten short minutes
after receiving homeopathic Apis, the swelling went down, her eyes opened, and she wiggled to get down to play."
That was enough to convince Shirley that she owed it to the dogs to learn everything there was to know about this
alternative medicine. While attending homeopathy school Shirley was presented with many dogs suffering from various
ills and saw many miraculous results with this gentle therapy. Shirley graduated from the Teleosis School of Homeopathy
and continues to help the shelter dogs as well as to give workshops in holistic protocols and homeopathy. Every adopter
goes home with a packet of helpful information on how to care for their dog inexpensively and holistically. Shirley and
her homeopathic coach, Begabati Lennihan, recently published a book A Healer in Every Home, Dog and Cat Edition
with many helpful tips on how pet owners can use simple homeopathic remedies and holistic measures to treat their pets
at home. The book is chock full of success stories that will inspire and empower the reader. Shirley teaches workshops
to the pet-loving community and is available as a speaker on holistic shelter protocols as well as on Homeopathy for
Pets and People. You can contact Shirley at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
