Providing Play Time for Shelter Dogs

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (09-02-2017) #540: Aimee Sadler founded Dogs Playing for Life, which visits shelters around the country to teach staff and volunteers how to get dogs out into play groups to improve their quality of life and make them more adoptable, too — their motto being “Every Dog Every Day” gets play time; Mary Peng in Beijing — Tracie’s co-host on her show “Tails from China” — discusses the particular challenges for adoption groups in China; Dr. Kelly Severino at the University of Pennsylvania veterinary school describes the unusual dental surgery in which she had to extract all of kitty Jax’s teeth.
