One animal shelter has come up with a magic idea to help get dogs adopted.

Dogs at Pet Alliance, in the US state of Orlando, has introduced ‘Pawgwarts’ to its shelter, with staff sorting the dogs into houses inspired by the Harry Potter films. The shelter thinks it’s a fun way of presenting its available dogs – while encouraging those interested to look further into the dogs’ personalities, rather than just initial cuteness.

In the Harry Potter films, students were placed into the house decided by the sorting hat. Shelter staff created a series of activities to enable a dog to be sorted by personality.
