This week I continue with interviews from my visit with Helen Woodward Animal Center. Alicia Roe is the Therapeutic Riding Program Manager and I spent some time with her at their equestrian center. What a great place, the horses, tack area, and riding arena. The program benefits children and adults who have a variety of special needs relating to cerebral palsy, Down’s syndrome, and autism to stroke recovery and learning disabilities. Join us as Alicia gives us a tour and shares with us the passion she and her volunteer staff have for their work!

It's the BIG weekend (for some people anyway) so once again Animal Planet and Petfinder.com team up for the PUPPY BOWL!!!! Watch 58 wonderful pups and their cheerleaders in this alternative to the other big bash: Furry Alternative to the Super Bowl. On the backwards time machine we have California Governor Jerry Brown proposing to shorten the shelter hold times from 6 to 3 days... California’s Governor Proposes Cutting Shelter “Hold” Period in Half. Now how about a corporation doing the right thing? Being socially responsible? Well how about replacing retail stores that sell animal (pets) with retail spaces for local shelters: Shopping Center Developer Initiates Puppy Mill Boycott. And finally we look at how show dogs can make great therapy dogs in retirement in: From Show Dog to Therapy Dog: Hogan's Story.
