Protecting Pets In Kennel Fires

When over 30 dogs were killed in a fire in West Chicago (Bully Life Animal Services or formerly D and D Kennels),  2N442 County Farm Road on January 14, I thought this shouldn’t ever happen again. Indeed, this tragedy, and others like it – which do happen around the country – are often preventable. With…

It’s Up to You New York: Ban Sales of Dogs, Cats at Pet Stores

No responsible breeder ever sells to a pet store, and that is why so many communities have  banned sales of dogs and cats (and sometimes also rabbits) from pet stores. Several counties have done the same. Forgot about going into a pet store to purchase a dog or cat in California or in Maryland, that…

Losing a Dedicated Force to Save Animals

Janice Chatterton, founder and President of the SPCA Puerto Vallarta, did in life what few do. She helped to change an entire culture and has saved lives. Chatterton, who was in her eighties, recently passed away after a sudden illness. Her sheer determination to rescue animals in need has saved a few thousand dogs and…

Does the AKC Really Support Responsible Breeders

Hundreds of cities, several counties and two states, Maryland and California, have banned sales of dogs and cats from pet stores. NO responsible breeder ever, ever sells to a pet store. Since that is the case, then where are these animals from? Can you say ‘puppy mills’ and commercial large-scale facilities? When describing where and…

Doc Emrick Talks Dogs

I talk on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show with NBC’s NHL legendary broadcaster Doc Emrick about dogs, which turns out to be his second favorite topic next to hockey. We mostly talk about the human animal bond, and the dimension they add to our lives. Emrick talks about his own relationship with…

Paul Vallas on Animal Welfare Issues: He Gets It

I’ve never heard a Mayoral candidate say that he understands that a more humane city toward animals means that we may be more humane to one another. And that’s exactly what Chicago Mayoral candidate Paul Vallas says HERE on my WGN radio Steve Dale’s Pet World show. I describe one event that impressed me about Paul:…

They Love Me In Luxembourg! Where’s That?

I receive reports when I send out my blog newsletter of where it’s opened by country.  Often Mexico appears, which makes sense since I have so many colleagues and friends there. I am speaking at the CICA Conference in Mexico City, the third edition of the International Conference of Animal Behavior. I am honored to…

No Dogs and Cats Sold at Pet Stores in Vernon Hills; Lincoln State Cat Show

On my WGN radio Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show, Listen in HERE. I mention King, who won the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Then, I launch into a conversation with Dr. David Oppenheim, village Trustee in Vernon Hills who along with his colleagues on the council all agreed unanimously to ban pet store sales of…

Susana Mendoza Supports Task Force on Pets

It’s true, for the second consecutive week, Chicago Mayoral Candidate Susana Mendoza was a no show for my WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World show. And you can hear that I’m a bit annoyed. After all, this is I believe the first time a guest is a no show two weeks in a row, and I’ve…

Love Your Pets For Valentine’s Day

How do you tell your pets “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day? Of course, you can buy a special treat (naturally, not chocolate). If you have a pet lizard, maybe Valentine’s is the day for fattening but yummy mealworms. Ferrets might enjoy extra playtime and the same is true for Labrador Retrievers. Thing about our…
