Well, well... 2016 was quite a year for Friends of the Animals. Paula joins the show to give overall adoption numbers for the year, and the conversation turns to all the different agencies and partners that FOTA works with to rescue dogs. The great 2016 flood had a significant impact on our Baton Rouge community-- and an impact on dogs, too. Paula and Catherine recount the flood, and get to share nice adoption news about the final "FOTA flood dog." Some of the other good news includes PEDIGREE Foundation funding and Bark n' BBQ. The show wraps with a tiny tease about some of what is in store for 2017. It's a good one. Give it a listen. Happy New Year from FOTA and the Pawcast.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from the Pawcast. We count down the 12 Days of FOTA Christmas on this not-the-usual Pawcast episode.
