The Pet Show preview - March 16, 2013
We've got some great guests on The Pet Show this week, and they're loads of fun!
Joining us first is Pascaline Clerc, Senior Director of Animal Research Issues from the Humane Society of the United States. Pascaline is talking to us about "Be Cruelty-Free Week," the first of its kind that HSUS is launching to educate the American public about the unnecessary suffering that animals endure for cosmetics and personal care testing, and how we can choose the products that we purchase more wisely.
She also tells us all about HSUS's Leaping Bunny designation that companies can earn, and what exactly that means. You can download the Leaping Bunny App on iTunes!
Next up, we've got the Kitty of the City herself - Jeannie Jones and her four-year-old "Pet Protector," Jordyn. Jeannie is a lifelong pet lover, and has passed it on to her precocious, bocacious, and absolutely precious daughter. You do not want to miss this little one's first television interview...she's vying for Dr. Katy's job!
Jeannie also brings us musician Robert Miranda, whose single "Addy's Song" is now available for purchase on iTunes. "Addy's Song" was inspired by Robert's rescue dog Addison, who also joins us on set, and a percentage of the proceeds from sale goes towards various animal rescue organizations, including the Washington Humane Society.
Finally, the Washington Animal Rescue League joins us with two incredibly Adorable Adoptable puppies...the puppy breath almost made Dr. Katy swoon!
Michelle Yue, Director of Behavior and Training, joins us to talk about WARL's training center, and how some simple commands can actually help to keep pets in their "Fur-ever Homes!" A great program that WARL runs, please check them out at http://www.warl.org/about-us/programs/dog-training/.
