The Birth of the Animal Rights Movement
Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (10-11-2020) #696: Featuring Ernest Freeberg, JoAnn in Olympia, and Cara Sue Achterberg. Ernest Freeberg discusses his book, A TRAITOR TO HIS SPECIES: HENRY BERGH AND THE BIRTH OF THE ANIMAL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, about the eccentric passionate man who started a moral revolution about humane treatment of all animals; JoAnn in Olympia, Washington returns to talk about how her kitty Levi was a carb-addicted food thief (bread, pastries) and how switching him to wet food (with the help of some BFF from Weruva) helped him overcome his addiction and begin to slowly lose weight, too. His litter-mate Piper got the bonus of getting onto a wet food only diet, too. Cara Sue Achterberg recounts her own real pilgrimage in ONE HUNDRED DOGS AND COUNTING: ONE WOMAN, TEN THOUSAND MILES, AND A JOURNEY INTO THE HEART OF SHELTERS AND RESCUES.
