Call in to speak with the host
Vanessa adopted Ernest - a puppy mill survivor who was rescued by the SPCA and the Humane Society. She has experienced the horrific conditions these dogs live in and the kind of permanent damage that can occur. Ernest almost died from the neglect he experienced, though he is doing GREAT now thanks to the terrific care he received by the vets associated with the puppy mill bust and Vanessa's love.
CritterKin and the SPCA both believe strongly that the solution to puppy mills is education. People need to not only learn to adopt from shelters rather than buy from pet stores that get their dogs from puppy mills, but learn the basics of pet care so that the dogs get adopted into forever homes. Host Charmaine Hammond is the author of On Toby's Terms (see www.ontobysterms.com). She also authored Toby The Pet Therapy Dog & His Hospital Friends, GPS Your Best Life and Toby Says Be a Buddy Not a Bully. She has developed a program for authors, Your Book As a Business, where she shares her learnings, lessons and success about the business of books.
