Before I mention Handicapped Pets, just want to give you a link to the radio show I did yesterday with Dr.’s Kim Bloomer and Jeannie Thompson, as well as children’s author, Kevin Coolidge and his cat Hobo. This show was packed with passion!
Now, just to tell you about what sounds like a FANTASTIC pet expo in Massachussets in September. Wish I could go!! I love all that Handicapped Pets is doing for animals, so wanted to share this announcement they had on their Facebook page about this wonderful expo. If you are in the area, be sure to go and check it out… then let me know how you liked it!
