SORT BY Relevancy
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.
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/

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.
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.

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.

WHAT IS "ANIMAL HOUSE"
"Animal House" is a television show concept that will renovate or build animal shelters in struggling communities. It’s family-friendly, inspirational and very close to becoming a reality. We are preparing to shoot the pilot episode and will then be in a position to lock a home for the show on network television, cable television or with an online content provider.
THE PILOT EPISODE OF "ANIMAL HOUSE" FEATURING ADAMS COUNTY PET RESCUE IN OTHELLO, WASHINGTON
Through their Facebook campaign, "Animal House" has been contacted by approximately 180 non-profit organizations in need of help. Adams County Pet Rescue in Othello, Washington is attempting to rebuild after their facility burned to the ground in 2009. Caring for mostly dogs and cats, they have a partial shelter and need assistance completing the building. The pilot episode will profile the animals of Othello who are in need of a safe haven and the dedicated individuals who are fighting for them.
Rebecca A. Rodriguez, the Creator of "Animal House" joins us.
Koby aka Puppy Einstein is a very talented little dog that has learned and performed many tricks and paints pictures for charity! We will talk to Kim Mobley who will tell us all about her darling dog and how Koby learned all the tricks.
