Get informed and Educated
Education is key and knowledge is power. We love to learn about our animals and Animal Welfare. Interesting and educational interviews about dogs and cats, training, classes, seminars, behavior, involvement in animal welfare, campaigns and projects.
Hello dear animal lovers and friends, In 2012 I wrote an article about Toni Eakes and her rescue and she threatened to sue me and I had to take it down. I left this short post up to let people know why I took the previous post down. For whatever reason, maybe because the universe wants […]
‘Oh, that one, he’s not going to be adopted anytime soon, he’s deaf’. This is what a worker at one of the rescues where I have volunteered said, when I asked her why a particular dog wasn’t being shown to the public. ‘Nobody wants to deal with a deaf dog, they all want ‘perfect dogs’. […]

I know that one of them is a veteran female race dog and I just love her; the other one is our neighbor’s dog on the same floor. Tall and slim, with deep […]
This year I told the story of a young man who got bitten on a playground area for dogs. He was ignoring the signs the dog showed him – and got bitten in his face. 133,683 people, including kids, were bitten in the US in 2001. What are the reasons, and what are we doing […]
Are you aware of the stray dog problem in Los Angeles? No? Well, approximately 30,000 dogs live on the streets of L.A. – some surrendered by their irresponsible owners, some dumped on the street, others never had a home. It’s an ongoing challenge for animal welfare groups, rescues and animal control services to reduce the number […]
Every time I’ve visited or volunteered at one of my favorite shelters/rescues, I leave feeling sorry for the dogs, sitting in their cold concrete runs behind steel bars. Looking at you, waiting to be taken out for a walk or to be patted. Dogs and cats kept in cages, barking and whining to get your […]
