For several months a cloud of controversey has been building around Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks, Washington that centers around at least 120 dogs being kept in a run down warehouse with no heat and reports of filthy conditions, lack of proper food, an executive director who refuses to allow anyone inside the warehouse, a small town refusing to press charges or serve a warrant and who is openely hostile to outsiders, protesters from outside the small town and outside the state, and people demanding the return of dogs they gave to this sanctuary for care.

Tamira Thayne and Robert Pregulman join us. Tamira is the CEO of Dogs Deserve Better and has been fighting for the return of Sonny, a dog that was placed by Dogs Deserve Better at Olympic Animal Sanctuary. Robert is a blogger for Seattle Dogspot who has been following this story closely. Other guests who have not yet been confirmed may include protesters and people involved in pending law suits. This show will be open to a limited number of callers from the public.

** Additional guests added: An interview with Maggie McDowell, a protester who was asaulted by Markwell, and Dawn Woody who was involved with the successful return of dogs from OAS
