Using Therapy Dogs for Children with Autism

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (03-23-2019) #615: Featuring Alexandra “Sasha” Protopopova, “Anonymous”, and Shelly Roche. Tracie talks to Alexandra “Sasha” Protopopova at Texas Tech University who is researching the use of therapy dogs for children with Autism spectrum disorders, and the concept that being able to play with the therapy dog IS the reward; “Anonymous” talks to Tracie about what was involved in his role as the undercover investigator for the HSUS at the animal research lab where Beagles are being force-fed pesticides for a year before being killed to be studied; Shelly Roche talks about her feline non-profit Tiny Kittens, and the film they made about an old feral cat named Mason, who is a nanny to their foster kittens.

BREAKING NEWS: Following Humane Society of the U.S. investigation, Dow AgroSciences agreed to stop tests on the 36 beagles! In this show you will hear the undercover investigator Tracie interviewed before this welcome news, and next week she will interview Kitty Block, the HSUS director, about how they achieved this momentous change.
