DOG TALK, Jan. 26, 2013

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

  • Tracy Coppola talks about Internet puppy sales and how to know whether the Internet is being used by “puppy farmers” with puppy mills to dupe people online — Tracy is the Campaigns Officer for the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), previously worked as a Policy Associate at Born Free USA, and before that with the American Humane Association, giving her considerable experience in both companion animal welfare and wildlife conservation issues, leading advocacy initiatives both on a federal and state level.
  • David Yaskulka from Halo Purely For Pets talks about the 14 stops HALO organized over the holiday season to bring 500,000 meals of Halo’s Spots Stew to 69 shelters and rescues, including many along the east coast that were impacted by Hurricane Sandy, bringing a good healthy meal to dogs waiting for their forever homes.
  • Sandy Robins is a pet lifestyle expert and the author of For The Love of Cats in bookstores now, and discusses her love of the Neko Flies toys to stimulate and enrich any kitty’s life.
