This week on Tracie Hotchner’s weekly DOG TALK® radio show and podcast:

  • David Haworth, the CEO of the Morris Animal Foundation, explains how MAF raises the money to underwrite research being done at veterinary colleges to study many issues affecting animals of many species, including a new study evaluating stem cell therapy — how it functions and how well it works.
  • Becky Robinson talks about Feral Cat Day (Oct 16) and the work being done by Alley Cat Allies (http://www.alleycat.org/) to support feral cat groups conducting “Trap, Neuter, Return” (TNR) programs across the country.
  • Jim Gorant wrote about an extraordinary pit bull in WALLACE: The Underdog Who Conquered a Sport, Saved a Marriage, and Championed Pit Bulls — One Flying Disc at a Time, who was a nearly-euthanized shelter reject and became a national champion competitor in Disc Dog, a tribute to the man who saw his potential, brought out the brilliance in the dog, and changed a lot of minds about the unfairly maligned breed.
