Communities Without Shelter Interventionists

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (04-08-2017) #519: Heather Owen, the founder and director of Chicago’s One Tail at a Time Dog Rescue (and beneficiary of the NY Dog Film Festival’s journey to the Music Box Theater there June 4th) talks about how some communities are “resource deserts” without shelter interventionists like One Tail which diverts dogs away from and out of the shelters; Jennifer Styrsky talks about the anxiety-reducing Adaptil pheromone collars for dogs from CEVA, and their donation of these collars and Feliway spray for cats to the Rose Brooks shelter for domestic violence victims in Kansas City, which allows pets to come with women and children seeking safety for all family members; Laura Young talks about her delightful picture book about her amazing (and challenging!) pet PUMPKIN: THE RACCOON WHO THOUGHT SHE WAS A DOG.
