This show featured former LA animal cruelty prosecutor Bob Ferber, who discussed the problems that often occur when police officers encounter dogs. A few months ago in Michigan, a dog in his backyard was shot and killed by an officer who was looking for a suspect. The officer said he feared for his own safety. Consequently, legislation has been introduced in Michigan to require training for law enforcement aimed at reducing dog shootings. Bob discussed causes and possible solutions.
Then, Brooke Haggerty, Executive Director of FACE (Foundation for Animal Care and Education) joined Lori to describe the organization’s program to provide funding for emergency veterinary care for animals of needy families. She has a wealth of good information! Visit FACE here.
