Most people think of their pets as part of their family.  I know I do.  But for some people, that’s not always the case.  
Stray dogs and cats present an ongoing problem that animal rescue and control face on a daily, if not hourly basis.  
 Many end up in county-run kill shelters. Some are adopted out, while many face an untimely execution.  What can be done to help these animals?  How can they get healed from their past traumas?
To save the lives of homeless pets, while educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets, Dr. Herbert Preiser founded Heartland Animal Shelter  in 2002.  The shelter strives to eliminate euthanasia for any adoptable animal, and has rescued pets from a variety of situations.
We’ll hear behind-the-scenes stories about Heartland Animal Shelter, and its role in saving pets, and matching them with the right people.
If you ever consider adopting a dog or cat from a shelter,
you'll definintely want to tune in.  
To educate listeners, we’ll hear from Stephanie Hoffman, Director at Heartland Animal Shelter, and Lou Basten, Chair of the Dog Care committee, Board member, and dog kennel volunteer.
