Just like humans, pets may need rehabilitation after an accident or medical procedure, or to help manage a chronic condition.
MedVet Rehabilitation practitioners provide effective and personalized physical rehabilitation using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to maximize the opportunity for full recovery. MedVet Rehabilitation Practitioners have completed advanced training in veterinary physical rehabilitation.
Many pets respond well to rehabilitation, including those with orthopedic, neurologic and medical conditions. We also use rehabilitation to help pets live a more complete and active life by providing geriatric support, obesity management and athletic conditioning.

On January 22, at 3pmEST, we present Mary Diaz on the "Huaman Rights Demand" radio broadcast. Mary is a prisoner activist who advocates for paroles and pardons. Tell us your opinion by calling (347)857-3293, or you can listen by computer live or hear the archived tape 24/7. Diaz is affiliated with "Human Conflicts," and "LET MY PEOPLE GO" is the motto. Mary lives in Florida, which had over 5,200 inmates who were parole eligible in 2014 but only released 18. Prison investors on Pardons and Parole Boards are a barrier to freedom for many rehabilitated inmates, I think.
Diaz said Alabama's Pardon and Parole Board has become a trendsetter for the rest of the country regarding releases. In Alabama during 2014, the Board considered 6,647 paroles, of which 2,237 were granted. The Board granted 657 pardons of 798 pardons heard and processed 522 voter rights restorations. That is real progress against mass incarceration. Some of the change may be credited to the ?Southern Poverty Law Center's lawsuit against the Alabama prison system.
"Presently, Maynard Cooper & Gale is fighting a Southern Poverty Law Center lawsuit that claims the health care provided to Alabama's inmates is inadequate and unconstitutional. Correctional health care firm Corizon is paying the firm to fight the lawsuit on behalf of the state due to a provision in its $224 million contract with the state. In total, the state has spent $1.86 million in taxpayer money to fight prison lawsuits in the past four years." reports AL(dot) com. That sum likely also includes a lawsuit by the ACLU? for segregating inmates with HIV. Righteous lawsuits litigated in just courts matter.
January is our month for new beginnings. We'll discuss pardons, paroles, and successful re-entry this month at Human Rights Demand and at National Network in Action (NNIA1). Please participate!

JUVENILE JUSTICE -- January 19, 2015 is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. He said, "All we say to America is, 'Be true to what you said on paper.'" Join us at 9pm PST at (818) 572-2947 to discuss that, or listen via computer. The show will also be archived at Blogtalkradio for access 24/7. Many officials talk about prison reform and sentencing reform, and some introduce and pass new laws. But are these new laws actually going into EFFECT? "Not all the time," answered my guest for tonight, Laura Griffin-Smith. Her husband was arrested at age 15 and has been incarcerated for 19 years. Shannon Smith had hoped for release under SB-260, California's new law, but that did not happen.
Smith completed numerous courses during his 19 years in prison. He is rehabilitated. His had employment waiting and a dear wife he has never known as a free man. Actually, he has never been a free man - He reached manhood behind bars. Shannon published a book called "Voiceless." Order a copy at
See Voiceless Movement page at Facebook
SB 260 went into effect in CA on January 1, 2014. Ideally, the new law gives a second chance to most people who were under 18 at the time of their crime and were tried and sentenced as adults. SB 260 holds young people responsible for the crimes they committed, but it recognizes that youths are different from adults and gives them a chance to demonstrate remorse and rehabilitation. SB 260 establishes a different parole criteria for people who did crimes as juveniles. Shannon seemed a likely candidate and allowed himself to dream, but his dreams were deferred.
