Dogs at a shelter were sorted into Hogwarts houses to stop breed discrimination

Humans aren’t the only ones that can turn into wizards. 

The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando animal shelter is sorting dogs based on their personalities into Hogwarts Houses from the Harry Potter series in order to increase adoptions. 

Everyone, including dogs, deserve a magical destiny. 

“Pawgwarts” was inspired by the famous wizardry school Hogwarts, which, of course, sorted people into four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin and Ravenclaw.

However, the sorting event got a doggy makeover with houses like Gryggindogs (the brave ones), Hufflefluffs (the loyal ones), Ravenpaws (the smart ones) and Slobberins (the cunning ones). According to ABC News, the dogs are sorted based on their interactions with their toys and each other. 

It’s not surprising that the Florida shelter found out they host a lot of Hufflefluffs, which only makes sense. Let’s face it, all cats are Slytherins.

Once the dog is sorted, they are given their perspective color scarves and charts for potential adopters to view. The main takeaway of the sorting is to eliminate breed discrimination and look at dogs for who they truly are.

(And spoiler alert: All dogs are amazing.)

According to ABC News, the shelter has seen an increase in traffic and possibly sparked a bigger conversation about giving every dog, regardless of breed, a chance to have a family. 

The non-profit even created an online quiz for dog owners to sort their own pets into the Hogwarts houses.

Just imagine what Hogwarts house Lassie is in. Or Bo Obama. The Portuguese water dog is definitely a Gryffindor.
