Comfort Dogs from Chicago in Newtown, Miss Meowsky's Award: WGN Radio Petcast

Comfort Dogs from Chicago in Newtown, Miss Meowsky's Award: WGN Radio Petcast

Listen HERE to this WGN Radio PETCAST, taking you to Newtown, Connecticut in an emotional interview....and Miss Meowsky makes a special announcement!

Newtown, Connecticut received support after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School – some of that assistance arrived with four paws and tails, a group of comfort dogs from Lutheran Church Charities, Addison, IL.

Tim Hetzner, president of Lutheran Church Charities, talks with me from Newtown. The conversation offers great insight into what people in the city are really feeling and saying. And he explained who these dogs are, and what they do...and how if a community cries out for help a contingent of Golden Retrievers are there to answer the call.

It’s an annual tradition, The Barker & Meowsky Pet Person of the Year. Stop the presses, hold your horses (or dog collars) – here, exclusively, Miss Meowsky’s big announcement: The 2012 Person of the Year is Chicago Veterinary Emergency  & Specialty Center. Come into see Miss Meowsky, and purchase Three Emergency Squirrels in a Log in 2013 (or remainder of this year) and a portion of the proceeds will those who can't afford emergency care for pets.
