    Kristen Peralta of Vintage Pet Rescue: Why rescuing a senior pet can be the best gift of all!

    Kristen Peralta is the co-founder of the amazing senior pet rescue, Vintage Pet Rescue. Vintage Pet Rescue (and you have to love the name) is a Rhode Island based 501c3 non-profit run by Kristen and her husband, Marc Peralta who ironically met at a Los Angeles animal shelter in 2013.  After moving from LA to Rhode Island (Kristen’s home state), over the last 4 years, Vintage Pet Rescue has taken in hundreds of senior, hospice, and special needs dogs. These dogs receive top-notch medical treatment, attention, and love before finding their forever home. People Magazine even featured their work in a hilarious story which we talk about in the show. 
    For anyone who has thought about starting their own rescue or adopting a senior pet, this is an episode not to be missed!

    Captain Paul Watson: On his new book, Death of a Whale, and how to be a fearless activist!

    Captain Paul Watson: On his new book, Death of a Whale, and how to be a fearless activist!

    Captain Paul Watson is a Canadian-American Marine Conservation Activist who founded the International Direct Action Group, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.  He and Sea Shepherd became household names through Animal Planet’s hit show, Whale Wars, where we got an in your face look at the murderous activities of the whaling industry. 
     For decades Captain Watson has dedicated his life to protecting all animals, especially marine mammals, and he does not shy away from controversy. 
     In his new book, Death of a Whale,  Captain Watson faces his most personal conflict yet when he and other anti-whaling activists find themselves at odds with Native American tribal rights.  
    Conservationists, eco-warriors, whale protectors and supporters of indigenous traditions as well as anyone who loves a good story will find themselves enthralled by his new book.

    Jan Creamer and Tim Phillips of Animal Defenders International (ADI): Getting Circuses Shut Down Worldwide: It's Happening!

    Jan Creamer and Tim Phillips of Animal Defenders International (ADI): Getting Circuses Shut Down Worldwide: It's Happening!

    Founder and President of Animal Defenders International (ADI) Jan Creamer, and ADI's Vice President, Tim Phillips, stop by the podcast to talk about their amazing work in getting abusive circuses that use animals shut down across the globe.
    For over 40 years, these two remarkable people have worked tirelessly to end the suffering of animals. With offices in Los Angeles, London and  Colombia, ADI is known for their long term undercover investigations inside cruel industries, gathering evidence that creates awareness and public support for legislation to end the suffering of animals and because of ADI’s campaigning, national restrictions on performing animals in traveling circuses have been enacted in 45 countries and ADI currently has a federal bill to ban the use of wild animals in all circuses before the US Congress.

    In Bolivia and Peru ADI tracked down and raided every circus and rescued every animal, saving close to 200 animals. ADI’s team is currently helping the Guatemalan authorities enforce their circus ban and has already saved 9 tigers and 6 lions from circuses.
    ADI is in the process of opening its own Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa specifically to give circus animals, like lions, back the life that has been denied them.
    Click on SHOW NOTES  to get information on all the ways you can help ADI, either through donations or powerful volunteer work! And part of the interview does talk about what it takes to be an ADI undercover investigator. Fascinating information that rarely gets discussed.  Jan Creamer was one of 100 visionaries nominated by the Albert Einstein Foundation to mark 100 years of Einstein’s theory of relativity.

My first podcast

I love this podcast in fact this podcast got me started on podcasts period, I just wasn’t interested until this one. I started listening because they interviewed two of my dog rescuing heroes Rudi and Michelle from Harley’s Dream so I made sure to listen in and have been hooked ever since.
