Extraordinary Working Dogs

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (05-20-2017) #525: Rebecca Ascher-Walsh talks about the extraordinary working dogs in her book LOYAL: 38 INSPIRING TALES OF BRAVERY, HEROISM, AND THE DEVOTION OF DOGS; Jamie Gottlieb discusses an alternative way to get your pet driven from one place to another –– or even become a driver yourself –– for Roadie pet transport; Tara Loller is the Director of Strategic Campaigns and Special Projects for The Humane Society of the United States and talks about how HSUS launched the Humane Puerto Rico program two years ago because animals are in crisis in this long-neglected, populous part of the United States, launching a new project to help solve this crisis, called the Sister Shelter Project, pairing each shelter on the island with a thriving shelter in stateside U.S.
