The Pet Show preview - March 9, 2013

This week on The Pet Show, we’ve got Team ASPCA, cruelty-free beauty, Super Pet Expo and an Adorable Adoptable from PWSPCA!

Kymberlee Setterberg, Director of Team ASPCA, joins us to tell us all about Team ASPCA and the Rock ‘n’ Roll USA Nation’s Capital Full and Half-Marathon which is coming up on Saturday, March 16. Members of Team ASPCA have many perks, including guaranteed race entry to world-renowned race events, endurance training from professional coaches and access to a 16-week virtual training schedule, weekend travel accommodations, Official Team ASPCA merchandise and much more.

Team ASPCA provides an opportunity to help homeless, abused and injured animals across the country while keeping yourself and your own pets fit. A winning combination. There are still spots open on Team ASPCA, to learn more, to join, or to make a donation, visit

Next up, Sonya Gavankar-McKay, former Miss DC and current face of the Newseum, joins us with more cruelty-free products! For the past 3 weeks, Dr. Katy and Sonya have been trying out 3 products. First, Unmarx is a new favorite of Sonya’s! These products not only safely remove deodorant marks, pet hair and lint, they also go to support cancer research as 5 percent of every purchase is donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.

Second, Dr. Katy and Sonya tried out Keeki nail products and were impressed by these vegan, gluten-free, toluene and formaldehyde-free, and virtually odor-free products. While the polish remover doesn’t remove ‘regular’ nail polish, it works well with the Keeki products, and the polish comes in a wide variety of fun colors. Do follow the instructions, though, as the nail polish doesn’t last long unless you do all the recommended steps.

Lastly, one of Dr. Katy’s favorite products made the list: BabyGanics. These plant-based cleaning products are safe to use around kids and pets, and Dr. Katy’s been a fan for years. The floor cleaner, the all-purpose cleaner and the dishwashing liquid made ‘the try-outs,’ and all of them receive an A+ from both ladies. And while your house won’t have the ‘Pine-Sol’ smell, these products work, and they leave your house, and the air, cleaner than before you sprayed them.

Next on the show, Kathy Benner from The Animals House joins us to tell us all about the Super Pet Expo which is coming up March 15 through March 17. Dr. Katy will be at the event on Saturday, March 16 to judge the “Best Dressed Pet” contest, along with the guys from Rescue Ink. From dock-diving dogs, to talking parrots, to agility training, to treats and collars, this show has it all. Bring your pup and the kids, and come on out to join Dr. Katy and her gang at The Super Pet Expo next weekend!

Finally, Beate Begley and Terri Kellenberger join us from the Prince William Humane Society with an incredibly Adorable Adoptable kitty cat that is strikingly similar to the ever-so-famous “Grumpy Cat!” You’ve got to tune in to see this smushy-faced little love muffin named “Jewel.” Whoever said you can’t get pure-bred animals at a shelter was totally wrong, and this beautiful little Persian proves it beyond a doubt!
