    The great shelter debate and no-kill shelters

    in Pets

    I'll be discussing the shelter debate, why a shelter pet isn't for everyone, and why it's not ok look down on those who choose not to get their pet from a shelter, and why you need to keep the shelter lecture to yourself.


    Also, my feelings on kill vs. no-kill shelters and how they really operate.

    Gender Journeys with Special Guest Thomi Clinton

    in LGBT

    Today our Special Guest is Thomi Clinton ~ Director of the Transgender Communtiy Coalition in Palm Springs, CA. Thomi is truly an amazing woman and we are excited that she will be joining us live so that you can ask her questions from the phone lines or the chat room. 


    The Transgender Community in the Inland Empire began coming to her with serious social and human rights issues. She decided to come forward, proactively, when one of the Transgender women attempted suicide. In the past two years she has become the center of visibility for the Transgender Community and has worked hard to make Transgender and Intersex individuals in her community safer by helping them to be treated with dignity and respect. She has aggressively beaten the statistics that keep Transgender people from equality in the above mentioned areas of life.


    A few of her recent accomplishments ~       



    Creating a Transgender Health Treatment Center with Borrego Health Foundation for low or no income Transgender and Intersex people to acquire health services that are unique to them.
    Assisted or directly trained Police and Sheriff Departments on appropriate Transgender interactions within the Coachella Valley.
    Trains staff at homeless shelters to be Transgender inclusive.
    Works closely with local community Transgender people to help find housing and employment

    Canine Commandos Training Dogs to Give Them a Second Chance | Virginia Hamilton

    in Pets

    Canine Commandos is a unique community/service learning experience. Their dream is for the Commandos to be in every school, in every shelter, in every community.


    Many dogs are overlooked for adoption in shelters due to lack of training.  The public bypasses dogs that are jumping and barking; untrained.  The Canine Commandos (300 students, 18 schools) rotate on a daily basis to provide consistent training to help these dogs get a second chance at a new home.  


    Virginia Hamilton is a teacher and lives in a community where two shelters are high kill due to untrained behaviors.  To improve the adoption rates, the students created Canine Commandos to teach basic obedience and help these dogs get a second chance.  This program teaches the students to care about the animals, their community, and their self-confidence which leads to caring about their academics to make successful gains.  Canine Commandos, now in its 13th year, provides a unique opportunity from at-risk students to gifted training in three shelters.  The students turn community service into service-learning by choosing projects to reflect upon their experiences in their academic subjects where they showcase and celebrate at an Expo at the end of each school year.


    Questions Judy will ask:


    1. Why was the project started?


    2. How do the animals and students benefit?


    3. What are the costs?


    4. Can you provide the number of animlas trained and the success rate?


    5. Has the program been acknowleged?


    6. If the public wanted to help (donate funds), how would they do this?
