WGN Radio Petcast: Two Heroes Rescue Dogs, Judy Baar Topinka's Comptroller's Critters


Listen to this WGN Radio Steve Dale’s Pet World Petcast with two unsung heroes and a hero who sings and dances, that’s our Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. LISTEN HERE (may take a few moments to load).

Superheroes fly! Peter Tobin and Karen Johnson talk about Pilots and Paws – they fly all over to deliver a pet seeking a home or medical care to another destination, often the destination saves their lives. They also fly to save children with a program called Wings of Mercy, which they talk about. Indeed, superheroes.

Karen will also talk about the 2011 Morton Pet Adoption Fair, September 25 at Washington Common Shopping Center (Golf Rd. at Washington St.), 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Local dog trainers, an opportunity to partake in yoga for dogs, with groomers and veterinarians. There will be pet products and most of all – pets available for adoption. The event is FREE and dog friendly.

Animal lover and Illinois State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka is a favorite guest on my show, on any show . . . . She totally speaks her mind. Who knows what she’ll say? She will explain why her new Comptroller’s Critters endeavor will not only save animal lives, but also save our state a few bucks. She’ll also talk about an upcoming pet adoption fair, which I will have the honor to emcee on October 28 at the State of Illinois Center.
