About Author

Devoted pet owner and now, devoted pet editor, Judi worked in traditional offices, keeping the books and the day-to-day operations organized. Taking her dog to work every day for over a decade never seemed odd. Neither did having an office cat. She knows what it's like to train a new puppy and she's experienced the heartache of losing beloved companions. Retired, she currently lives with her spoiled dog and four chickens (who are, interestingly enough, also spoiled).

    Having volunteered at animal rescues before, I know it’s a certain type of individual who give of themselves and their time to help abused and neglected animals.

  2. Pet owners should definitely spay or neuter their pets. There is absolutely no reason to allow the abuse to continue, due to over population. I salute all the volunteers who donate their time to comfort and safe the absused animals. This was an excellent video.
