More pets are lost over the Fourth of July holiday than at any time. Gary MacPhee of HomeAgain Pet Recovery says prevention is

Losing a dog is a nightmare so many pet owners have. For most of us that will never happen. If it does happen though, though, with proper ID (tags and microchip) you DO have a good chance of recovery. Without those things - your chances diminish.

One reason for that is 12th District
Representative Sara Feigenholtz. In a wide ranging conversation, Rep.
Feigenholtz speaks about everything from her own aging cat and end of life issues for pets, to doggy day care centers to the

for animals!
