This Sunday we feature two rescues:
Feathered Friends Sanctuary, a parrot rescue and adoption center. Learn about the general care of birds from the parrot family and why they are often surrendered by people who discover they cannot care for them.
Also joining us is Leave no Paws Behind, an all breed dog rescue specializing in seniors and pets with special needs. Located in southern California. Hear some special stories about some special dogs.
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.
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.

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.

Many rescues exist throughout the United States.Most are non-profit and volunteer driven. Rescues are rich in love but short on funds.

Terri Gerard, President, Poodle Rescue of Vermont joins us to discuss their rescue of the Poodle dog breed. "We rescue Poodles from shelters, pounds, puppy mills, and backyard breeders and from 19 states, Canada and South Korea and growing. . We arrange ground and air transportation to bring dogs into our family from across the US."
There are three domestic breed cats that were created by cross breeding a domestic breed to a wild small cat specie resulting in a domestic cat with the coloring and physical characteristics of their ancestors. Most of these cats today have less than 10% wild cat in their lineage, but some animal rights groups are calling these cats a monstrocity, "frankencats" and is pushing the state of California to outright ban the sale, ownership, and breeding of these beautiful animals. The "Bengal" cat is the most popular of these breeds with over 100,000 in the USA.
Joining us today is certified cat behaviorist Marilyn Krieger who is an expert on the Savannah and Bengal breeds, and Savannah breeder and TICA Savannah Breed Chair Brigitte Cowell will dispell the myths and misconceptions of these breeds. Marilyn wrote an article about this subject on Catster. The backers of this legislation are the Animal Legal Defense Fund and Big Cat Rescue., who both did not respond to our invitations to join the show. ALDF is based in Portland, Oregon and has been successful in passing a ban in Alabama, Georgia, Hawaii, Nebraska, and Rhode Island.

"Mercury was found when he was about 4 days old (just over 5 ounces in weight, and eyes still shut, born about September 3rd/4th 2013), and we believe he was hit with a weed whacker since people in the neighbourhood had been doing yard work in tall grass shortly before he was found. He was taken to our vet, his wounds were cleaned up, and we were then called to care for him since we do a lot of bottle babies and special needs kitties for rescues. We fed him around the clock, and cleaned his wounds multiple times a day until they fully closed over. As far as bottle babies are concerned, he was actually very calm and content, only crying when he was hungry or wanting a cuddle. He grew well, and from the very start he would move on his own."
Mercury suffered severe injuries and has made remarkable progress. You will hear the heart warming story of raising Mercury.
Phone lines will be open to speak to both guests. For more information about rescue cats, please visit our web site.
Marjorie’s Kennel in rural New York in August of 2013 was found by the Department of Agriculture to have more than 200 dogs, living in filthy pens: many suffering from disease or injuries. Rescue efforts have resulted in the release of 60 dogs who have been found to be suffering from the following:
* 36 dogs with Giardia
* 21 dogs with Coccidia
* 55 dogs with roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and/or tapeworms
* 12 dogs with bacterial infections
* 11 dogs with fungal or yeast infections
* 2 dogs with demodectic mange
* 3 dogs with systemic bacterial infections
* 27 dogs with bite wounds
* 2 dogs with frostbite injuries
* 4 dogs with untreated torn cranial cruciate ligaments and severe patellar luxations
* 41 dogs with patellar luxation of grades 1-4
* 29 dogs with abscesses
* 2 dogs with hip dysplasia
* 2 dogs with malformed limbs or patellar fusion
* 1 dog with mammary cancer
* 1 puppy with a large burn
* 2 dogs with sarcoptic mange
* 60 dogs frightened of human beings and completely unsocialized.
More than 50 sick dogs were euthanized and 50 more are believed to have been sent to or sold at a dog ‘auction’ in Ohio following the inspection. In October of 2013, the owner of the kennel, Marjorie Ingraham, signed an agreement to release the remaining dogs into the care of Suncoast Keeshond Rescue, however, after signing the agreement to release the rest of her dogs and vowing to ‘retire’ from breeding, Ms. Ingraham has refused to turn over the remaining dogs to rescuers.
