Today, host Julie Forbes talks with Christina Capatides with Muttigrees Curriculum. Muttigrees teaches kids in schools about compassion, empathy and diversity by telling them stories about shelter pets so they may see the world through their eyes. This helps them develop these skills for other humans too. Muttigrees is currently piloting a curriculum for special education classes as well. They've found their curriculum to be particularly powerful for kids on the autism spectrum.

This week I will be speaking to ex-volunteers about the way a certain Tennessee shelter has changed its caring ways, jumping on the band wagon of not keeping adoptable dogs around and disposing of them when its not convenient for the shelter.
Is our perception of 'life on the inside' a true reflection of how it really is?

In Christianity, Jesus spent 40 days in the desert, a situation that was designed to test him. It was a lonely, barren, frightening time, but one from which he emerged a more powerful and wise messiah. The vision quests of the American Indians followed the same protocol and rationale. But in other spiritual practices, a different concept exists entirely--that of finding "shelter", or a refuge. Being in the world, but not of the world. Deliberately pulling away to a private place in which you can develop your spirituality without interference. And we're not talking about going up to a mountaintop in Nepal or hanging out at the ashram. This refuge exists in your mind. How do you do this? How do you get there? What are the benefits to this practice? We'll be talking about finding refuge in tonight's broadcast
Graham Bloem was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and has had an affinity with animals all his life, although his true passion is for dogs. At age five, he immigrated to Toronto, Canada with his family, but enjoyed frequent trips back to South Africa. His experiences in wildlife settings instilled a dream of one day working with animals. From Canada, he immigrated to the United States obtaining US citizenship and he now resides in sunny San Diego, CA with his amazing family (wife Kyrié, two wonderful children, and dogs Lucy and Juno, a Heinz 57-rescue sweetheart and a giant Bernese Mountain Dog).
In 2002 Graham graduated with honors as an Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer (ABCDT).
Over the next ten years, Graham worked as a dog trainer and instructor for a number of shelters, adoption agencies and kennels including his own company West Coast K9. Then, in 2012 Graham started a non-profit “Shelter to Soldier™” (http://specialtydogtraining.com/shelter-to-soldier/), which provides service dogs to military personnel.
The aim is to train service companions for military men and women battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or other psychological or physical ailments from their service in Iraq, Afghanistan or other active areas. In addition, this program will change the lives of many dogs, rescuing them from their uncertain lives in shelters and instilling in them the meaningful opportunity to become lifetime companions for our struggling service men and women.
If faced with an approaching or developing disaster, what's the best course of action to deal with it?
Do you hunker down and stay in place, or do you evacuate - aka "bug out" in prepper terminology?
A lot depends on what the disaster is, and how it's unfolding.
We'll take a look at some scenarios, including those ripped from this week's headlines.
We're not nearly so enamored with the "bug out" option as others in preparedness circles.
We make our case, share our insights, and welcome your input beginning at one o'clock EDT
Talking with two authors today. First, Tom Cohen, author of "Dogs with Old Man Faces", celebrating dogs with 'old souls'. Then host, Julie Forbes talks with Ardeth De Vries, President of the Board of Old Dog Haven, a non-profit that is a large network of foster homes that gets old dogs out of shelters! www.olddoghaven.org
Old Dog Haven: "We want our dogs to know that someone thinks they're valueable. Old dogs can become throw-away dogs that become expendable, for whatever reason, and it's very important to us that they're able to spend time with people who validate their importance."
On this week’s podcast, Azi Paybarah from CapitalNewYork.com was unable to join the show because of breaking news.

Instead, host Mark Healey gave his overview of this week's issue and Thursday's ferry and shelter news...
