Puma has quite the story. Many years ago, Puma and her 12 other Pit Bull friends were apart of a police standoff. You see her owner at the time was on drugs and he got into a shoot out with the police and held himself, his girlfriend and his dogs hostage inside their house. After many hours and a promise by the police that they would make sure his dogs were taken care of (despite Puma's owner's problems, he LOVED his dogs), the owner gave up. Puma and her doggie friends were split up among various rescue groups. Sadly Puma has a major case of PTSD from all the gunshots that were fired that day and when there is a loud noise or bang, she runs and hides.
For over ten years Puma was in the care of Villalobos Rescue, the shelter featured on Animal Planets Pit Bulls and Parolees. Then Jackie Drake came into Puma's life and together their lives would change forever.
"I was told before my first morning of volunteering at Villalobos that Puma was easily stressed and that I had to be gentle when walking her. I’ve walked many dogs that were previously abused or unsure but this was different. Any kind of loud or sudden movement/noise would send her completely over the edge. I had also been informed that she would panic herself so much that she would sometimes pass out. When Puma’s leash was handed to me every morning I made it my priority to make sure she felt safe no matter what. By doing this for Puma, she gained a huge trust with me and I knew that leaving her behind in New Orleans was not an option. She was my exception."
Jackie will be with us to talk more about Puma's story and how she is currently doing. Phone lines will be open during the show.

This week we meet Diane Jones from Guardian Angels Cat Rescue and Peaches the Cat.
Guardian Angels Cat Rescue & Adoption Shelter is an all volunteer organization operating a no kill facility for homeless felines. The Shelter operates with an upper limit of 136 resident felines onsite, and some in the care of foster homes depending upon the season. All cats that enter the Shelter are assessed by a veterinarian and once tested and cleared for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus or other diseases are available for adoption.
Peaches the Wonder Cat was born in July 2013 and was dumped at a kill shelter when she was only 4 weeks old. It was soon discovered that she was dying from a diaphragmatic hernia....probably from being thrown or kicked... Luckily a wonderful vet was able to do emergency surgery and she survived, despite the odds, and made a full recovery. Her growth, however, was stunted because she was unable to absorb nutrients in the first few months of her life so she is very tiny.
Join us to learn more about our guests and the joy and love cats bring to the world.
Billy Howard does grass roots rescue with his Alabama Angels Dog Rescue Inc. Billy goes through an estimated 70 lbs. of dog food PER DAY. He receives no help other than his meager pension every month, which he gladly spends to feed, vet, spay/neuter and microchip his dogs. He just recently got his 501c3 designation as a non-profit charitable organization, which hopefully will open doors for his rescue to receive much needed assistance. His is a rescue in extremely rural Alabama, where the average income per person is so small that he cannot get a lot of financial support from his neighbors. Billy keeps all his dogs in a free roaming fenced yard and his home, and he is also a dog fighting investigator. And while his resources are stretched thin, he knows his limitations. Learn about all the great work he does and what rescue is supposed to be. http://www.alabamaangelsdogrescue.com/
Molly the Corgy was shot to death by an angry neighbor in broad daylight in front of the family who the dog belonged to. Cary Chunyk will explain what happened and the impact on his family, and Josie C Rhoads-Verbeek wil telll us about the Facebook page seeking justice for this poor dog.

Many rescues exist throughout the United States.Most are non-profit and volunteer driven. Rescues are rich in love but short on funds. Listen to the 101 on rescues and how you can get involved in saving animals in crisis. Join Jackie Morrison, the L.A. Pet Photography Examiner for Examiner.com and a blogger for Tails Magazine for an introduction to the world of animal rescue.
On this special broadcast, our guests are Robert Misseri, President of Guardians of Rescue, and animl activist Terry Hamm.
Guardians of Rescue is a national organization based in New York which fights to protect and save dogs and cats who cannot protect themselves and was involved in two very public cases: Olympic Animal Sanctuary and the "Dogs in the Box".
Terry Hamm is a long time activist and has been involved in the Dogs in the Box case since it's very beginning, and is still fighting for justice for these dogs.
You will learn more about Guardians and the work they do, their role in the Dogs in the Box case, and why Terry feels the best interest of these dogs is still not being met.

When Anne Kaier stopped her car on a busy road to tend to an injured cat, she had no idea how that decision would change her life. Home with Henry: A Memoir (PS Books, $15), tells the story of the slow process of domesticating Henry, the strange urban dwelling that became his home, and the bond that ultimately developed between Henry and his new human companion.
Home with Henry relates the journey Kaier and Henry take together—Kaier giving him the space and time to settle in, little by little enticing him from his hiding spot under the guest bed, introducing him to her beloved resident calico, Lucille, and finally allowing him free reign of her backyard garden. Witty and insightful, the book offers readers practical tips and suggestions about how to introduce new cats, rescue or not, to a home. It also highlights the true joy of pet ownership and the rich companionship pets can offer.

Below are some of the most frequent questions we get at www.deathofmypet.com We will go over the answers to these questions about pet loss and how it affects those of us who are are suffering.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PET LOSS
& THE GRIEF OF LOSING A BEST FRIEND.
How is it possible that I am sadder with the loss of my dog than with the loss of close family members?
For many people the love and companionship of a pet may be the only or certainly the strongest bond of unconditional love they have experienced. It is also possible, like many of my clients, which you have been strong and practical while caring for ailing parents or friends. But suddenly, your best friend and closest companion is dying and it is the last straw on a pile of buried emotions. It may be that your pet was your “safe place to go and soft spot to land.”
2. I feel like I am going crazy. Am I ever going to feel normal again?
Yes, you will feel emotionally better but different than before. You will eventually remember and rejoice in the many happy times you had with your pet. You will be able to reflect on the many life lessons you shared.
3. How long will I grieve my pet?
All of our emotions are individual. When we love deeply, we grieve deeply. Grief coaches often say that it takes about a year before your loss is the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think about at night.
