147: Craig Grossi, Author, Craig and Fred: A Marine, A Stray Dog, and How They Rescued Each Other

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Mon, Oct 23, 2017


Author and former U.S. Marine Craig Grossi shares the story behind his book “Craig & Fred: A Marine, A Stray Dog, And How They Rescued Each Other.” Goes on sale Tuesday, October 31, 2017!

In 2010, Sergeant Craig Grossi was doing intelligence work for Marine RECON—the most elite fighters in the Corps—in a remote part of Afghanistan. While on patrol, he spotted a young dog "with a big goofy head and little legs" who didn’t seem vicious or run in a pack like most strays they’d encountered. After eating a piece of beef jerky Craig offered—against military regulations—the dog began to follow him. "Looks like you made a friend," another Marine yelled. Grossi heard, "Looks like a 'Fred.'" The name stuck, and a beautiful, life-changing friendship was forged.

Fred not only stole Craig’s heart; he won over the RECON fighters, who helped Craig smuggle the dog into heavily fortified Camp Leatherneck in a duffel bag—risking jail and Fred’s life. With the help of a crew of DHL workers, a sympathetic vet, and a military dog handler, Fred eventually made it to Craig’s family in Virginia.

146: Sherri Franklin, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue; Rescue Think Tank, San Francisco

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Mon, Oct 16, 2017


Sherri Franklin, Founder and CEO of Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco, shares her journey in animal rescue at the Rescue Think Tank as she celebrates Muttville’s Tenth Anniversary.

Sherri Franklin, a long-time animal advocate and shelter volunteer, founded Muttville in 2007 to save the lives of the older dogs that were considered “unadoptable” and routinely euthanized in area shelters. Working from her house, she saved 27 dogs that first year. She said she “wanted to make senior dogs sexy,” and in fact, has turned the organization into a Bay Area favorite and a national model.

In 2010, Sherri received the Jefferson Award for Public Service, which recognizes those who “inspire others to service.” In 2016, CNN named Sherri a CNN Hero.

137: Karen Schaver Clears the Shelters, Orphan Dog Rescue; Paul Griffin is a New Dad, Saving Marty

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Wed, Sep 13, 2017


Karen Schaver and Paul Griffin are our amazing guests today.

Karen Schaver runs Orphan Dog Rescue in beautiful Lake County, California. She talks with us about her goal to bring as many dogs to the Bay Area Pet Fair this weekend, with the hope of clearing out the shelters.

Paul Griffin is an accomplished author, with his newest children’s book, Saving Marty, launching on Tuesday, September 19. He is also a first-time father, with his adopted and musically talented teenage daughter, Ani. He shares about the book and his incredible journey with Ani.

Orphan Dog Rescuet

Facebook

Orphan Dog Ranch now homes an average of 250 dogs every year that are rescued from Northern California and high-kill shelters in Southern California and other overpopulated shelters. Karen and her devoted team of dedicated volunteers drive 2 hours each way, every Saturday, to set up adoption events in Petaluma, Novato, and San Rafael as well as other Bay Area locations.

Thank you Karen!

Saving Marty

Eleven-year-old Lorenzo Ventura knows heroes are rare—like his father, who died in the war, or his friend Paloma Lee, who fearlessly pursues her dream of being a famous musician. Renzo would never describe himself as a hero, but his chance comes when he adopts Marty, a runt piglet.

Thank you Paul!

132: Virtual Book Tour, Laura Schenone reads from The Dogs of Avalon; Harold The Lazy Vegan


Mon, Aug 21, 2017


Laura Schenone reads from The Dogs of Avalon and Harold discusses his ten-month journey as a first-time vegan and the positive impact on his health.

Laura’s book goes on sale Tuesday, August 22, 2017.

The Dogs of Avalon introduces us to the strong-willed Marion Fitzgibbon, born in rural Ireland, where animals are valued for their utility. But Fitzgibbon believes suffering is felt by all creatures and champions the cause of strays, baffling those around her—including her family—as she, and a group of local women rescue any animal in need, taking on increasingly risky missions.

Laura’s Books

Notes

Some of my favorite vegan dishes are bean and rice burritos, lentil soup, falafel wraps, hummus, miso ramen, vegetarian potstickers, fried rice, french fries (in moderation), almond butter and jelly sandwiches, fresh fruits and vegetables, green smoothies, and asian tofu and veggie stir-frys.

The muscle soreness that statins may cause can lead to rhabdomyolysis

Helpful article on protein sources for vegans

130: Laura Schenone, author of The Dogs of Avalon: Marion Fitzgibbon and the Greyhounds of Ireland


Sun, Aug 06, 2017


After adopting an Irish sight hound, her dog Lily, Laura Schenone discovers a remarkable and little-known fight to gain justice for dogs and for all animals.

Greyhounds, bred to be the fastest dogs on earth, are beautiful, gentle, and astonishing creatures. Yet for decades, countless numbers of them have been abandoned and destroyed every year once they can no longer compete and win.

The Dogs of Avalon introduces us to the strong-willed Marion Fitzgibbon, born in rural Ireland, where animals are valued for their utility. But Fitzgibbon believes suffering is felt by all creatures and champions the cause of strays, baffling those around her—including her family—as she, and a group of local women rescue any animal in need, taking on increasingly risky missions.

Notes

  • Owen Patrick Smith (1869-1927) is the American who invented the mechanical rabbit, which sparked the beginnings of greyhound racing.
  • Beverly Wolf is the woman who worked very closely with Marion for two decades. Beverly and her husband housed many of the animals that they saved.

126: Saving One Iguana At A Time: Nicole Spencer, Southern Reptile Saviors Rescue


Mon, Jul 03, 2017


Nicole Spencer is our rockin’ reptile-loving guest today. She is with Southern Reptile Saviors Rescue in North Carolina, and her current focus is twenty iguanas, along with many other animals, including tortoises which can live over 100 years! She is married with two kids.

Nicole reviews some important basics - vegetarian diet, lighting, and humidity. Iguanas require all three to survive and to thrive! She also discusses the importance of a veterinarian who specializes in reptiles, and expectations for potential iguana adopters.

Founded by Kim Alderman, Southern Reptile Saviors Rescue Inc is a registered 501c3 animal rescue located in coastal North Carolina. They consist of a group of volunteers who are passionate about saving the lives of homeless, unwanted, or injured reptiles. They foster, rehab, and rehome every type of reptile out there, from snakes to lizards and everything in between.  

Other Important Information

  • Bruce Felker cares for many animals for Souther Reptile Saviors, from snakes to other lizards.
  • Iguanas are vegetarians! Do not feed iguanas meat, dog or cat food, as it can be very harmful to them.
  • The Sulcata Tortoise is the third-largest tortoise species in the world.

124: How to Rescue in a Natural Disaster: Joanne Greene, Forces of Nature, Hurricane Katrina


Mon, Jun 19, 2017


Joanne Greene is our amazing guest. She watched news of the human and animal suffering that Hurricane Katrina caused in 2005, and instead of staying put, she decided to do something about it. Forces of Nature is a book based on her experiences as well as those of Penny Koncz.

Forces of Nature by author Graham Spence is the remarkable story of the courage and commitment of two ordinary women who put their lives, jobs and families on hold to rescue hundreds of thousands of pets fighting for their lives when Hurricane Katrina destroyed New Orleans.

Joanne Greene, a former Playboy Bunny, and Penny Koncz, an award winning Michigan body builder, watched with horror as almost the entire pet population of one of American’s most iconic cities was abandoned and some even shot in the aftermath of the third most powerful Atlantic storm in history. While humans were ordered to evacuate New Orleans in 2005, no provision was made for the estimated 300,000 pets. Many were left in homes with a bowl of food and water, as their owners expected to return soon. No one was prepared for the apocalypse looming on the horizon.

119: Kacey Klonsky, Filmmaker, Love Unleashed: Senior Dog Stories


Mon, May 22, 2017


Kacey Klonsky, filmmaker of Love Unleashed, is today’s talented guest.

Kacey is currently based in Portland, Oregon but is always excited and ready to travel at a moments notice for a great project.

Although living on the opposite coast, Kacey joined her mother, photographer Jane Sobel Klonsky, on many of her trips and documented her photo shoots on video. After a couple of years of watching her mother’s passion project turn into a full time endeavor, she began not only to film the people and their dogs but also conduct short interviews. The result is an ongoing web series, called Unconditional Stories, each episode telling the story of a person and their aging dog. Kacey says: “The film series was an organic project in many ways. A collaboration between my mother and me grew from our desire to work together.”

113: Jimmy & Rose Hunter, House of Ig: The World of Iguana Rescue


Mon, Apr 10, 2017


Rose and Jimmy Hunter are the heroes behind House of Ig. They share their lives with eleven iguanas, along with some turtles. You will also see a dog and cat in the photos.

Jimmy and Rose first rescued Tulsa from near-death when Jimmy moved to Illinois from Oklahoma. After Tulsa passed away, over the years, it has grown little by little. They talk about good iguana care (husbandry), including doctor’s visits, a rich and diverse diet, and the importance of lighting. They picked up knowledge along the way, and Jimmy and Rose were kind enough to share a variety of resources for the reptile lover!

On Friday, Nancy helped with a Wings of Rescue flight, the third one of 2017 Nancy worked on. She worked hard to coordinate the flight of sixteen dogs from Northern California to a variety of no-kill shelters in Spokane, Washington. Nancy shares some of her thoughts from that day.

On Saturday, Nancy and Harold attended the Business of Saving Lives conference which brings together many animal rescue people from the San Francisco Bay Area. It was the thirteenth annual event at Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation. Some great speakers, including Dr. Regan McGowan; Erin Kerley and Audra Farrell; Renee Harris; and especially, Dr. Kate Hurley.

On Sunday, it was St. Pitty’s Day at Contra Costa Animal Services, an event that attracts potential adopters to meet a wide variety of dogs from Contra Costa Animal Services and other rescue organizations. Nancy and Harold discuss the adoption of Sedona, a beautiful pitbull mix.

108: Sandra Cordero, Goats on the Rock Airbnb: Animal Sanctuary on the Sunshine Coast


Mon, Mar 20, 2017


Sandra Cordero rescues about eighty animals on her property in Roberts Creek, British Columbia off the Sunshine Coast. This includes over fifty battery hens, as well as ducks, goats, pigs, and Nina the Turkey! Batteries are the cages where hens are kept to create an cost-effective egg-laying process, while also causing suffering and distress for the hens by constricting movement, among other harmful conditions.

Sandra shares her life journey, her day-to-day life, and why she started her own animal sanctuary.

If you would like to stay at Sandra’s Airbnb, look for “Goats on the Rock.”

Airbnb is an online room and home-sharing app that is a great alternative to staying at traditional hotels.

Farm Sanctuary’s mission is, “to protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and promote compassionate vegan living.”

Thanks to Deb Ozarko, guest from episode 98, for the connection with Sandra Cordero!

104: Tamar Arslanian, Author, Shop Cats of New York, and I Have Cat blog


Mon, Feb 27, 2017


We are giving away ONE copy of Shop Cats of New York by Tamar Arslanian, photography by Andrew Marttila. It’s a lovely book for the cat lover in your life.

To qualify to win, write us a review on iTunes, Stitcher, or both. Deadline is end of day (midnight Pacific Time) on Sunday, March 5, 2017. Winner to be announced in an upcoming episode.

About Our Guest 

Tamar Arslanian lives in New York City, and started her blog several years ago, I Have Cat, with the tagline, “Single in the City, with Cat(s).” Shop Cats of New York is her first work, and she shares about her writer’s journey, living the single life in New York, and her life with cats. She also discusses the importance of finding homes for cats, even in a non-traditional space like a local business.

Tamar shares her home with two cats, Kip and Haddie. Her middle cat, Petie, died last year.

About Shop Cats of New York

Humans of New York meets The French Cat in this carefully cultivated, gorgeous full-color collection featuring New York’s iconic felines and the stories behind them.

They inhabit New York City’s most legendary and coziest spots—the Algonquin Hotel, a whiskey distillery, Bleecker Street Records, and a host of yoga studios,  bookstores, and bike shops in between. True New Yorkers—masters of people watching—they perch on wine crates, piles of books, and a classic hotel countertop, taking in the activity around them. Depending on their mood, these cats will ignore enthusiastic admirers, offer a few delightful purrs, or occasionally even take a swipe. Some even find a mouse or two to chase.

90: Marie Macaspac, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue


Sun, Dec 11, 2016


Marie Macaspac offers some terrific marketing and branding tips, along with observations on Muttville's founder Sherri Franklin and how her leadership empowered Marie and others. All part of a larger journey transforming Muttville into one of the premier rescue organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a powerful image synonymous with senior dogs.

Marie Macaspac is founder of both Switchblade Creative Studios and Animal Rescue Marketing. She is also Director of Marketing for Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, which started in founder Sherri Franklin's home.

Our episode starts when Marie Rochelle Macaspac left behind a corporate marketing job to start her own path. While starting to build her own business, Marie loved that she was able spend most of her days with one of her closest friends - her dog Jazmin - by her side.

A year later, Jazmin died.

Marie eventually volunteered for Muttville. A major moment occurred in 2008 when the band Gogol Bordello offered to perform a benefit concert for Muttville. Marie's marketing instincts kicked in to help make the concert a success, and led to Marie helping with the growth of Muttville through a variety of marketing and branding strategies.

We get the sense from the interview that Marie's personal growth and Muttville's growth are intertwined. Thanks to Marie for sharing her story.

86: Four Great Writers and Inspiring Animals: Authors and Writers on Pawprint


Mon, Nov 07, 2016


Nancy and Harold discuss fosters Cooper and Whisper, and highlight four amazing guests who are authors or writers from the Pawprint Animal Rescue Podcast. We have 18 guests who have either written a book or write as a profession.

Writing can be very personal. A way to reflect and to document something you experienced. Dr. Sarah Boston from episode 3, is a veterinary surgical oncologist at the University of Florida. Sarah is a cancer survivor herself and she shares a little bit of what she went through. Her journey would inspire her to write her book Lucky Dog.
Writing can be a way to go deeper into a topic you want to learn more about. Peter Zheutlin, our guest from episode 11, was a lawyer for several years before deciding to make the change to writing. He writes for magazines and has authored or co-authored several books. His latest is Rescue Road, and here Peter talks in great detail about Greg Mahle, who was a previous guest on our show as well.
Writing can be a way to bring your adult life and your childhood past together. Nina Huang attended Harvard for several years to get her doctorate, when she gave that up to become an artist. She discovered the wonderful world of greyhound rescue and wrote a children’s book inspired by that experience called My Apollo. In today’s segment she also shares some very personal stories of her own childhood.
Writing can bring enormous feeling to the bonds we have with our animals. Eileen Mitchell has this wonderful way of taking the mundane activities of living with her greyhound Elvis and showing the powerful beauty of the human-dog connection. Eileen wrote regularly for the San Francisco Chronicle and currently writes for her own blog called, “I didn’t see the asterisk.” Eileen shares about her writing life and reads one of her stories for us.

66: Pit Bull Series Preview


Sun, Aug 21, 2016


Our Pit Bull series begins on Thursday, August 25. Join us!!

Some of our upcoming guests

We hope you take the time to learn more about pit bulls and some of the people who work hard to rescue these wonderful dogs. Each dog is an individual, so one suggestion we make is to take the time to get to know your animal. You might find that pit bulls are terrific companions and are ready to change your life in a positive way.

The overcrowded conditions in many animal shelters often highlights the problems pit bulls present for animal rescue. They are some of the most overbred dogs, and because of their controversial reputation of dog bites and association with dog fighting, are sometimes considered less desirable by prospective adopters. This can cause tremendous suffering, as some pit bulls stay in shelters for years, or are euthanized.

You'll hear stories of those who work with pit bulls directly and listen to their experiences with animals of all sorts, including pit bulls.

Thanks to Peter Zheutlin for the connection to Dr. Sara Kelly.

Thanks to Dave Lee for the recommendation on Zach Skow.

65: Prue Harrison in the Lion City: Your Singapore Animal Rescue Story


Thu, Aug 18, 2016


Prue Harrison lives in Singapore, also known as the Lion City, and she works in Marketing and Branding. Prue shares some animal rescue stories, talks about the importance of fostering, and shares her personal journey from England to Southeast Asia.

Thank you to Steven Shalowitz, host of The One Way Ticket Show, for connecting us with Prue. http://theonewayticketshow.com

If you want to learn more today’s episode, go to our show notes, at http://thisispawprint.com/65.

Singapore’s SPCA (The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) started in the 1800’s, and was revived again in 1947.
http://www.spca.org.sg

HDB stands for Housing and Development Board, which manages public housing in Singapore. Eighty percent of residents live in HDB units. Prue Harrison mentions that HDB rules have prohibited cats, and have only allowed very small dogs, although Project ADORE has changed that to a degree.

Project ADORE (ADOption and REhoming of dogs) allows some medium-sized dogs (15 kg in weight, 50 cm in height) to be adopted in HDB housing under specific conditions.
http://www.spca.org.sg/news_details.asp?id=837

Black dog syndrome - some studies have shown that black dogs get adopted at less frequent rates than other color dogs, and this can also lead to higher euthanasia rates.

60: Nancy and Harold talk Clear the Shelters, Pit Bulls, & Our Shy Foster Dog


Mon, Aug 01, 2016


Nancy and Harold Rhee discuss the successful Clear the Shelters adoption day in Berkeley, California, along with our upcoming podcast series on Pit Bulls. We also discuss the downside of offering free pet adoptions, and our very shy foster dog, Curry. Show recap notes at http://thisispawprint.com/60

Clear the Shelters was an effort of NBC partnering with local animal shelters in the United States for a coordinated animal rescue day on Saturday, July 23, 2016. Clear the Shelters has grown in its two years of existence, and over 47,000 pets were adopted in 2016 due to this terrific partnership.

Website

Clear the Shelters video

Featuring the local NBC station and many rescue organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Nancy and Harold fostered Chloe, who got adopted, and currently foster Curry. Diane Roth fostered Noodle, who was found extremely malnourished. We interviewed Diane, she was a fascinating guest!

The Good and Bad of Free Adoptions

Clear the Shelters featured either reduced fee or free adoptions. While this positively increases interest in pet adoptions, the downside is free adoptions can attracted people looking for “bait” dogs and cats for dog fighting, along with folks trying to make some quick money. They do this by adopting an animal for free with the intention of selling the animal for a profit.

Look out for future announcements for our Pit Bull series!! Initial episode should be released around the end of August.

55: Thomas English: Your Lone Star Animal Rescue Story


Thu, Jul 14, 2016


Thomas English is a math professor with a Texas-sized heart for animal welfare. After Tom moved to Galveston County in Texas, he witnessed how animals suffered in the overcrowded conditions of his local animal shelter.

Tom was mentioned in Rescue Road, the New York times bestseller about animal rescuer Greg Mahle, written by Peter Zheutlin. In today’s episode, Tom offers his wisdom and insights from his years of helping save thousands of animals.

http://www.31paws.org/

Tom’s Vaccination Program

Tom works with Merck Animal Health http://www.merck-animal-health-usa.com

through a shelter/rescue vaccine program they have. He purchases approximately 40,000 vaccine doses per year for redistribution to rescues and smaller shelters. Larger organization often set up their own program, but many of the smaller ones are not able to handle the paperwork of such transactions, so Tom helps those organizations. This allows the smaller shelters and rescues to benefit from volume buying.

The core vaccines he uses are

  • Canine DHPP
  • Canine Intra-Trac III (Bordetella)
  • Feline RCP

Brazoria County Animal Control is the organization where Tom spends much of his time photographing dogs and cats and offering vital health assistance.

K9 Airlift is one of the organizations Tom works with.

Greg Mahle is founder of Rescue Road Trips. Greg drives approximately 4,000 miles every two weeks to deliver dogs in the Southern United States to rescue organizations in the Northeast.

Peter Zheutlin wrote Rescue Road, the book about Greg Mahle which also includes the story of other animal rescue heroes like Tom English

52: Periscope vs Facebook Live for Animal Rescue


Sun, Jul 03, 2016


Learn about Periscope vs Facebook Live!

With the podcast episode, our YouTube video, and the show notes, you’ll learn the basics about live streaming video to get started with your animal rescue!

The Three Things You Will Learn

  1. Why live streaming video?
  2. What is Periscope and what is Facebook Live?
  3. Which should I use?

YouTube video https://youtu.be/Ac__KHZSyeM

Show Notes http://thisispawprint.com/52

Why live video?

Live streaming video is a great way to keep your audience engaged with your animal rescue organization. Nowadays, social media is at a saturation point. I know I am overwhelmed with animal rescue-related Facebook posts, Instagram photos, and Twitter tweets. Live video is a way to differentiate yourself and get your friends, followers, and newcomers to stay.

Sometimes live streaming goes viral, like in the example of Candace Payne, better known as “Chewbacca Mom.” What started out as a four-minute Facebook Live video of her shopping trip to Kohl’s soon became viewed and shared over 150 Million times!

https://www.facebook.com/candaceSpayne/videos/10209653193067040/

Here’s a Time Magazine article showing some of the great things that happened to Candace after the popularity of video.

http://time.com/money/4356563/chewbacca-mom-facebook-gifts-disney-college/

What is Periscope and what is Facebook Live?

Periscope is a standalone application for live streaming video. It is owned by Twitter, although you don’t need to use Twitter to gain access to Periscope. They are separate apps.

Facebook Live is a function of Facebook. It is not a separate application. So if you use Facebook on your Apple or Android phone, you have Facebook Live.

Both are very easy to use. Turn on the app or function, add a title to your video, click to record, and you are live!

On both Periscope and Facebook Live, viewers can show appreciation by sending hearts. It’s easy on Periscope since you just tap the screen and a heart appears. On Facebook Live, if you “like” a video a heart will appear, which is almost as easy as Periscope, but it feels more enjoyable on Periscope.

Both Periscope and Facebook allow viewers to comment. Only Facebook allows you to type a comment back, although I found that to be difficult if I was talking on the video.

Which should I use: Periscope or Facebook Live?

Both! If your goal is to broadcast your animal rescue message to as many people as possible, and since both Periscope and Facebook Live don’t require additional equipment or practice, I think it would make sense to keep using both. If time is limited, I would decide on one and stick with that. Here’s a quick thought on why you might want to use Periscope or Facebook Live.

Periscope + and -

  1. A great way to welcome a new audience since Periscope videos can potentially be seen by anyone.
  2. Screen tapping to send hearts and commenting is a more enjoyable experience on Periscope.
  3. You can Periscope several times a day and that’s fine. If you did the same with Facebook Live, your friends or followers might get a little tired from the large number of your videos.
  4. Periscope’s audience is much smaller than Facebook’s, tens of millions vs Facebook’s billions, but more active.

Facebook Live + and -

  1. Facebook Live doesn’t require a separate app, it’s built into Facebook. Very helpful.
  2. A great way to engage your friends and followers in a way that’s different from most posts.
  3. If your video ever goes viral, the Facebook universe offers a massive audience of billions.
  4. Facebook Live videos show up near the top of your profile page under the Videos section.

For both Periscope and Facebook Live, videos are permanent. Periscope’s videos used to disappear after 24 hours, but that is no longer the case.

Jeremy Ryan Slate is host of his own podcast called Create Your Own Life. He interviews amazing entrepreneurs, business people, and podcasters to help you with your own entrepreneurial journey.

He shares about his dogs Venus and Coco Chanel, the struggles he and his wife had to go through to adopt Venus, and shares a great story about getting married in a pet-friendly ceremony.

The lesson with Venus is to be persistent enough to prove to a rescue organization that you are worthwhile adopters to these animals. Rescue organizations reserve the right to reject a potential adopter, but that does not have to be the final word.

45: Three Reflections After the First 45 Episodes: With Harold


Thu, Jun 02, 2016


Reflection #1: Animal Rescue People are talented!
Here are the guests I mention.

Dr Sarah Boston http://thisispawprint.com/3

Pen Farthing http://thisispawprint.com/7

Greg Mahle http://thisispawprint.com/9

Aya Eintracht http://thisispawprint.com/10

2. If we inspire you to start your own podcast, go for it!
If you are interested in starting your own podcast, let's talk. We answer questions on podcasting on a regular basis.

You can podcast on anything! If you feel like there is something inside you that needs to be shared with the world, a podcast could be the right platform for you

3. Anything worthwhile requires commitment and dedication
This goes without saying, not much of a revelation here. Whether it is animal rescue or anything else, you need to commit, dedicate, and sacrifice to make something great happen. Hopefully you have found something you believe in, or you feel is worth you time, or you might have some proficiency in. It doesn't simply happen, be prepared to work hard for it.

No one said it would be easy. But as Aya Eintracht would say, “It is worth it.”


We're shooting for at least 45 more episodes the rest of the year, we hope you join us on the journey!!

44: Tebow the Wonder Dog Got Adopted! Nancy and Harold discuss


Sun, May 29, 2016


We fostered Tebow in December 2015 and he got adopted in early May of 2016. Harold mentioned 4 1/2 months which was incorrect.

When we think of growly dogs, whether accurate or not, it reminds us of the hilarious dog scene in There's Something About Mary with Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz. Tebow was much, much gentler than the dog in the movie.

There's Something About Mary https://youtu.be/jX09Cesfxo8

In the weeks since Tebow got adopted we have already fostered Jade (black dog), her one puppy Ruby (tan), and Tina (brown and bushy). Jade and Ruby got adopted permanently together!

Tim Tebow is a former NFL quarterback, Heisman trophy winner, and two-time college national champion. He also has a fascinating personal story, including his strong views on religion. http://timtebow.com/

37: Ask Irith, Part 3: Irith Bloom, Positive Reinforcement Trainer: Reactive Dogs On-Leash


Thu, May 05, 2016


Irith Bloom, owner of The Sophisticated Dog, is a trainer of dogs and other animals. She uses positive reinforcement, and today we learn about a common situation for dog owners - dogs with reactive or aggressive behavior while they are on-leash.

Two items you may want to consider for this training:

  1. Front-clip harness such as the Freedom harness. This can help for situations when your dog reacts very strongly while on leash.
  2. Soft treats divided up into very tiny pieces, like beef jerky. Hard, crunchy treats are not recommended.

FREE RESOURCES: If you would like two training resources, written by Irith Bloom, that complement this episode, go to http://thisispawprint.com/ask and subscribe to our mailing list. Once you confirm, we will email you the two handouts!

Irith Bloom is based in the Los Angeles area, and she speaks in the United States and around the world on a variety of training topics. Since dog training is an unregulated industry, we recommend dog trainers like Irith, who have passed several certifications with a variety of dog training organizations.

22: Diane Roth: Piglet the Chihuahua & Single Source Dog Food


Sun, Mar 13, 2016


Diane Roth is a wonderful animal rescue and foster hero. She shares some excellent fostering advice from her own experience, and very valuable knowledge on single source dog food. Diane also opens up about the challenges she faced during a difficult stretch in her life and how much her chihuahua Piglet helped her through the toughest times.
 
Fostering tips
1. Consistency - follow a predictable routine every day
2. Patience - it takes time for dogs to feel like they are part of your pack and bond to you
3. Start slowly - avoid burnout
4. Don't be afraid to ask for help
 
Diane's four dogs we discuss in the episode: Piglet the Chihuahua, Phoenix the Rottweiler, along with Butter and Lucy, both rescues. Roscoe was mentioned briefly, he's a foster dog.
 
Diane's business
Carefree Pool & Spa in El Sobrante, California
Phone: (510) 669-9020
 
Single Source Dog Food
Diane learned about this in response to recent dog food contamination stories in the US and other countries. Most popular foods are produced in the same facility as other brands, which can potentially raise contamination risk.
 
Here are the three Single Source food sources that Diane Roth mentions. Do your own research and ensure suitability for your pets.

20: Mimi Dietderich, East Bay SPCA: The Awesome World of Fostering


Sun, Mar 06, 2016


Mimi Dietderich is Foster Care Coordinator for the East Bay SPCA in Oakland and Dublin, California. Mimi shares her story and covers a wide range of topics, including fostering, some interesting animal facts, and compassion fatigue. She also shares two touching stories about Miso and Frankie. 
 
Resources
https://www.eastbayspca.org/
https://www.facebook.com/EBSPCA/?fref=ts
https://www.instagram.com/eastbayspca/
 
http://www.oaklandzoo.org/
http://lindsaywildlife.org/ - an organization oriented around wildlife health and education
 
SPCA
SPCA stands for Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. SPCA's in general are independent organizations. The first one was founded in the early 1800's in England.
 
What requirements do you need to foster?
1. Patience! A new place can be stressful for an animal. Each animal is unique with its own behavior and character.
2. A place to live
3. Time. Be available for the pets. Dogs in general need more time than cats due to the need to go outside.
 
Why is fostering so important?
Fostering an animal, even for a couple weeks, opens up a space in a shelter to hold another dog, cat, or other pet. The animal(s) you foster will hopefully get adopted by a permanent or forever family. There are so many reasons animals benefit from fostering which include:
1. letting puppies and kittens grow old enough for spay / neuter
2. giving an injured or sick animal time to heal
3. socialization
 
Some other foster-related advice
1. The first foster is always the hardest, since saying goodbye and returning the animal can be very difficult emotionally.
2. After the first foster, it is a little easier to say goodbye and prepare for the next one.
3. Plenty of people do end up adopting a foster. It even has an endearing term, "foster fail," or "foster failure."
 
Education
Educate your children on animals, including behavior and care, through your local shelter. Some offer day camp programs!
 
Compassion Fatigue
Compassion fatigue is a term for burnout. Compassion fatigue can impact anyone involved with "caring" work such as animal rescue.
 
Ways to cope with compassion fatigue
1. Take time for yourself.
2. Follow your outside interests that do not involve as many caring activities. 
3. Live healthy. Avoid junk food, alcohol, and drugs. Shopping and gambling are other activities to monitor so they don't get out of control.
4. Even with that, it can still be overwhelming, recognize that you can't fix every situation and meet every need.
 
Kittens and Puppies
  • When the number of kittens spikes, it's called Kitten Season. Depending on where you live, it often starts in the Spring, and usually starts to slow down around the end of Summer.
  • If you find a litter of kittens in your neighborhood, don't assume they were abandoned by their mother. She may have simply gone away to find food.
  • KMR and Esbilac are brands of kitten and puppy meal replacements. For very young cats and dogs.
 
Thanks again to Mimi Dietderich!

Appi Preusen, based outside of Chicago, Illinois, is an animal rescue hero and today's guest. Over the past 15 years, on her own initiative and hard work, Appi has helped save at least 700 to 800 dogs and cats. She has formed an informal network of fosters. She doesn't have her own facility, board of directors, famous millionaires, or silent auction fundraisers to help her cause. It's simply she and a dedicated group of people.

She's been doing this as long as she could remember, even as a child.

Appi gives a wide-ranging overview of fostering
1. Why fostering is important,
2. expectations new fosters should have,
3. matching your activity level with your foster animal's
4. the space requirements for fosters, and
5. the need to foster all types and ages of animals.

She also shares some terrific foster / animal rescue stories, including Hector, an older Applehead Chihuahua, and Duke, a Pitbull-Great Dane mix.

17: Marie Macaspac, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue: From Good to Great


Thu, Feb 25, 2016


Marie Macaspac offers some terrific marketing and branding tips, along with observations on Muttville's founder Sherri Franklin and how her leadership empowered Marie and others. All part of a larger journey transforming Muttville into one of the premier rescue organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a powerful image synonymous with senior dogs.
 
Marie Macaspac is founder of both Switchblade Creative Studios and Animal Rescue Marketing. She is also Director of Marketing for Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, which started in founder Sherri Franklin's home.
 
Our episode starts when Marie Rochelle Macaspac left behind a corporate marketing job to start her own path. While starting to build her own business, Marie loved that she was able spend most of her days with one of her closest friends - her dog Jazmin - by her side.
 
A year later, Jazmin died.
 
Marie eventually volunteered for Muttville. A major moment occurred in 2008 when the band Gogol Bordello offered to perform a benefit concert for Muttville. Marie's marketing instincts kicked in to help make the concert a success, and led to Marie helping with the growth of Muttville through a variety of marketing and branding strategies.
 
We get the sense from the interview that Marie's personal growth and Muttville's growth are intertwined. Thanks to Marie for sharing her story.
 
If you are in Southern California, you can see Marie present at the Animal Care Conference in Long Beach, California with her session called, "Social Media Unleashed." From March 6 to 8, 2016.

15: Rebekah Nemethy, My Rescue Rocks: Passion for Pets, A Podcast, & Photography


Thu, Feb 18, 2016


Rebekah Nemethy is a fellow animal rescue podcaster. She hosts My Rescue Rocks, now in its second season. Rebekah shares her story as an artist and podcaster, her spectacular photography, some photography tips, and a number of inspiring animal rescue stories.
 
Rebekah Nemethy's Photography Tips

Whether you want to believe it or not, each pet's photo is marketing. Sad marketing often leads to pity, and not adoptions. Here are some tips to keep your rescue dogs looking happy and help them get adopted.

  1. Never show a pet in a metal enclosure and try to avoid chain link fences if possible too. These elements give the psychological impression of a prison which is associated with bad behavior. We don't want to strengthen the bad dog stereotype. Always take the dog to a happy place, in the grass, on a piece of comfy furniture, even up against a plain old wall will be a huge improvement over any kind of crate or cage. A last resort I use is the over-the-shoulder pose, if there is no decent photo location at your facility, have someone hold the dog over their shoulder with their back to you, you can easily use a bright blue sky or a plain wall, indoors or outdoors, as a simple background.
  1. Get their happy face on! You want your pups panting with their ears perked. Why? Because a dog with his tongue out most resembles a smile to our simple human brains, and the perky ears give the viewer the impression that he is interested, curious, or playful. Who doesn't love a good head tilt?
  1. You won't always be able to get all three of these ideal gestures (tongue out, perky ears, head tilt) in every shot, but you sure can try. Play with the dog before you take his photo, if he's running around chasing a ball he's sure to be smiling afterwards. Have an arsenal of silly sounds at your disposal. I always carry a squeaker, a clicker, and I've got my Donald duck voice down pat. I also have a giant bag of treats and I've been known to take the bag out and shake it over my camera.
  1. Dogs with floppy ears really look 100% happier with their ears up, so personally that's what I go for in every shot. Dogs with cropped ears look nicer with a smile.
  1. I totally advocate dressing up dogs too. Cheap scarves, flowers, bow ties, etc., can be found at your local craft store. Not only do dogs in costume stand out, but in my mind they also give the dog some credit for having a decent temperament. I wouldn't let someone take photos of me in antlers!
  1. Use text overlays for names, quotes, and captions to grab attention. Put the dog's name on the photo, give him a thought bubble and write something cute about what he's thinking inside. If you use Photoshop you can find inexpensive overlays that are pre-made, but there are tons of free apps out there that will allow you to add your own text or stickers to a photo. If you're not tech savvy then you can make physical signs and posters for dogs to wear or stand next to. Get creative, do silly things, and stand out!
  1. Lighting is a topic I could write a book about, but I'm going to keep things simple for the beginners out there. Never use on camera flash, just turn it off. Unless you have experience with off camera lighting or you can control the direction of your flash, I recommend you use natural light whenever possible.
  1. Inside, you should turn off all the lights and use natural light through windows. Outside, on a sunny day, make sure you situate your rescue pups either fully in the sun or fully in the shade, not, for example, under a tree where there's splotchy light. Overcast days, however, are the easiest lighting conditions to get great photos outdoors. Just make sure the sun is at your back, even on overcast days.
  1. Be aware that these tips are coming from me directly and not from HeARTs Speak. As a member, I highly recommend anyone interested in shelter photography go get the HeARTs Speak Field Guide to learn more about the technical aspects of shelter photography, studio lighting, post processing, working with cats and dogs, and how to best promote pets on social media. There is no other guide out there like it. 

HeARTs Speak application window for Perfect Exposure Project grants

Also, right now through March 31st, HeARTs Speak is accepting applications from shelters interested in participating in the 2016 Perfect Exposure Project. This is for open admission shelters only and a limited number of grants will be given out, but if your shelter is chosen HeARTs Speak will provide a free 2-day workshop AND donate a camera and lighting equipment to keep the great photos rolling out. Apply here: http://heartsspeak.org/2016/02/applications-now-open-for-our-2016-perfect-exposure-project/

11: Peter Zheutlin, Author of Rescue Road: On the Road with Greg Mahle


Thu, Feb 04, 2016


We talk to author Peter Zheutlin about his discovery of the complex world of animal rescue through the adoption of his dog Albie. He describes the process of meeting, following, and ultimately writing a book about Greg Mahle and other animal rescue heroes, as well as the ups and downs of a writer's life.
 
Book
Peter Zheutlin's New York Times and Amazon best-seller, Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs, and a Million Miles on the Last Hope Highway, records the journey of Greg Mahle, who drives a truck 26 times a year to save thousands of dogs. You also get to know many other heroes - the folks on the front lines of rescue - who visit shelters, search for strays, and sacrifice much of their lives to benefit dogs. People like Keri Bullock Toth, Kelle Davis, and Alicia McCarty, among many others. We featured Greg Mahle in Episode 9.
 
Donate to Rescue Road Trips (Donate here!)
Peter Zheutlin's wife, Judy Gelman, set up a YouCaring site for Greg Mahle to get a new truck, and Peter discusses it during the interview. The YouCaring site for Greg has been closed for an excellent reason - it reached its goal!! We shall see Rescue Road Trips deliver dogs to loving homes in a newer and safer vehicle in the very near future.
  • If you want to donate to Rescue Road Trips to pay for diesel, help with truck repairs, and most importantly, help save thousands of dogs, donate here.

10: Aya Eintracht + Mino & Oreo: Your Animal Rescue Stories on PettingTruck

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Sun, Jan 31, 2016


Aya Eintracht writes for her own blog, called PettingTruck. Her posts focus on her family of cats and dogs. She tends to prefer white long-haired cats and black Newfoundland dogs, which you can witness in the many photos she shares. Aya Eintracht grew up in Chernovitz, part of the former Soviet Union Russia, now better known as Ukraine. Aya and her family currently live in the United States.
 
Today, she gives a reading and additional background information on two animal rescue stories.
  • First, Mino the Cat, whom she rescued in Chernovitz, Ukraine from the apartment of a musician who had committed suicide.
  • Second, Oreo the Dog, whom she rescued in the United States. Oreo had a behavior problem that could have been disastrous for Aya and her human family.
PettingTruck's website
 
Newfoundland dogs, named after the Canadian province, are some of the largest dogs one can find, often 120 pounds (54 kilograms) or more in weight. They are a working breed and are often found on fishing boats for their swimming and rescue capabilities. They are also known as gentle protectors. Sometimes referred to affectionately as a Newf or a Newfy.

Thanks again, Aya!

9: Greg Mahle, Rescue Road Trips: Trucking A Million Miles to Save Thousands of Dogs

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Thu, Jan 28, 2016


Greg Mahle of Rescue Road Trips shares his story of dedication to his family, including his wife Adella, and to thousands of dogs over the years.
 
Approximately twenty-six times a year, or every other week, Greg and one hired driver take a seven-day journey from Ohio to Southern states like Texas and Louisiana to fill up a tractor trailer with up to seventy dogs. They then head to Northeastern states like Pennsylvania and Connecticut to deliver each dog to their respective permanent or "forever" homes. That's a 4,200 mile round-trip, every two weeks!
 
Learn more about Greg's story, such as WHY he has made this journey every two weeks for years, the ups and downs of life on the road with a huge pack of dogs in a truck, and the many dedicated people who help make these road trips successful.

If you are looking for the YouCaring site that Greg Mahle mentioned in the interview to donate, the site has been closed for a very good reason - it reached its goal!! We'll give an update to Greg's fundraising efforts on an upcoming episode with Peter Zheutlin, author of Rescue Road.

Book
Greg Mahle's work and dedication inspired a book. Peter Zheutlin's best-seller, Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs, and a Million Miles on the Last Hope Highway, paints a portrait of Greg's wonderful personality and the effort and heart he gives. You also get to know many other heroes - the folks on the front lines of rescue - who visit shelters, search for strays, and sacrifice much of their lives to benefit dogs. People like Keri Bullock Toth, Kelle Davis, and Alicia McCarty, among many others. Like me, you may learn more about the daunting animal overpopulation issue, and cry tears of sadness and with some stories, tears of hope. [Amazon] Rescue Road

8: Dusty Showers + Ol' Man Jenkins: Your Animal Rescue Story

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Sun, Jan 24, 2016


Dusty Showers is a humane urban wildlife trapper based in the Tampa, Florida area. He also co-founded The 2nd Basemen, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to Breast Cancer.
 
Dusty Showers has a wonderful rescue story of Ol' Man Jenkins, an old chihuahua, but behind it is the troublesome fact that many pets are abandoned in cruel and harmful ways. There are a number of reasons why people abandon their dogs, cats, and other animals:
  • Lifestyle, such as relationship breakups, new children or new partners, and moving to a new location.
  • Financial
  • Behavior
  • Health
  • Commitment

Remember that there are organizations who can help. The key is to take the time to find an able organization. Don't resort to abandoning or harming an animal.

 
In case you're wondering...
  • Yes, Dusty Showers is his real name!
  • Thanks to Katie Krimitsos for connecting me to Dusty and for Alina Berry Clark for never giving up on Ol' Man Jenkins!

Dusty's final words on Ol' Man Jenkins say, "He died in his sleep, comfortable, and at peace." Ol' Man Jenkins died in the summer of 2015, and the YouTube video featuring Dusty and Ol' Man Jenkins currently has over 268,000 views.

2: Elena Bicker, Tony La Russa's ARF: Building a World-Class Rescue Community

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Thu, Dec 31, 2015


Elena Bicker, Executive Director of Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation, ARF, discusses twenty-five years of creating a world-class animal rescue facility and community. They have been rescuing thousands of cats and dogs for years, and along the way have developed a wide range of programs related to rescue, foster, advocacy, education, and community awareness.

It all started on May 7, 1990 when a stray cat wandered onto the field during an Oakland A’s baseball game. Tony La Russa – a Hall of Fame player, manager, and baseball executive – was the manager for the A’s, and he and his wife Elaine were surprised to find that there weren’t any no-kill animal shelters in the neighboring areas. That initial event was the genesis for ARF.

Elena Bicker joined staff in the late 90’s and made an immediate impact, raising over $1 million, and she never looked back. Elena’s been Executive Director for ten years, helping ARF achieve a 4-star rating as a charity from Charity Navigator, and truly creating a blueprint for other animal shelters to strive for. To loosely quote Elena Bicker from the interview, they set out to build a shelter, and ended up building a community.

000: Fifty Puppies and a Podcast: Intro to Nancy and Harold Rhee

Author: Nancy and Harold Rhee
Wed, Dec 30, 2015


Have you ever wondered what it takes to place a stray animal in a permanent home? On Pawprint, you’ll meet the everyday heroes of animal rescue who use hard work, dedication, and out-of-the-box ideas to give homeless pets a second chance.

thisispawprint.com

What is a rescue organization?

  • It can be one person with a passion for saving animals, or it can be a comprehensive organization with paid staff, a shelter, an animal hospital, and a network of volunteers. The mission is to save dogs, cats, and other animals from homelessness, and place them with a permanent, or “forever,” home.
  • Rescue organizations also advocate for animals. For example, changes in laws to protect animals, reduce irresponsible breeding (like puppy mills), and spread the word on the importance of spaying and neutering animals.

Two rescue organizations we mention in this episode:

What is a foster?

  • A person, a group, or family, who temporarily take in one or more animals in preparation of finding a permanent, or forever, home.
    • The animals often need to get spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and treated for a wide range of health issues, and socialized to get along with people and other animals.
    • Some animals only need fostering for a few days, while others may take months to find that special forever home.
    • Nancy and Harold have fostered over 50 dogs, which is one of the reasons we started Pawprint, to get you inspired and moving!

We share inspirational stories from leaders, volunteers, and experts in animal rescue, health, and behavior.

If you want to learn more about us, here’s some random stuff about your adorable Pawprint co-hosts:

  • Harold grew up in Buffalo, New York. He is a long-suffering Buffalo Bills football fan. Even though he lives in San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders country, he refuses to change his allegiance! Our son Dylan, by the way, is a 49ers fan.
  • Nancy grew up in Seoul, South Korea, and speaks three languages – English, Korean, and Japanese. She grew up with dogs in Korea and while living in New York City had a cat named Smitty.

Thanks for listening, and send us feedback and ideas! thisispawprint@gmail.com
