Twelfth Annual Chat Month on PetHobbyist.com|
February 5-28, 2010
Friday, February 26:
NOTE: Although Nathan was originally scheduled to speak with Christie Keith, she has laryngitis. Mike Fry and Beth Nelson of Animal Wise Radio and the Animal Ark Shelter of Hastings, Minnesota have agreed to step in for her. PetHobbyist.com extends a huge thanks to Mike and Beth for their kindness!
Nathan will answer questions about how to fight back in the courts and in the legislature, about New York State's proposed Oreo's Law, the feral cat lawsuit in Los Angeles, how the Civil Rights Act can come to the rescue, using the Freedom of Information Act, and more.
Nathan will be joining us via streaming audio, and you'll be able to comment and ask questions in our text-based chat room.
NEW GUEST AND TIME! John Binns
The IRCF works in concert with the scientific community, educators, and professional conservation organizations as a part of the total conservation solution. The IRCF is a member-based organization that actively pursues the conservation of reptiles and amphibians and the natural habitat and ecosystems that support them in a variety of capacities, depending on the project or program.
John will be joining us tonight to discuss a variety of IRCF's campaigns, as well as where more help may be needed. While many look at the reptile community as from a pet trade industry perspective, kingsnake.com also strongly supports many conservation efforts world-wide, including kingsnake.com CEO taking a turn in a dunk tank at Daytona last summer in support of IRCF.
John and kingsnake.com's Cindy Steinle will be talking via streaming audio, and you'll be able to chat, comment and ask questions in our text-based chat room.

Panel Discussion with IMOM
That's the topic we'll be tackling on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 9 PM Eastern Time, when we're joined by IMOM founder/president Jacki Hadra and IMOM vice-president Cindy Wilson for a panel discussion with Christie Keith on "Keeping help flowing to animal causes in a recession."
Few groups understand better than IMOM just how difficult it is for people to cope with an inability to pay their pets' veterinary bills. They've been making grants and helping pet owners raise money for procedures for pets whose owners can't handle the costs on their own. But tough times have made it hard for them to keep helping.
If you're a rescue group or are trying to raise money to help animals, find out from others in the same boat what tips and techniques work better in tough times. And if you're an animal lover, find out how you can help not just IMOM but all kinds of animal organizations, just how little it can really take to make a difference in a sick or injured pet's life, and how much difference that can make for the pet's owner, too.
Bring your questions and comments, as you'll be able to share them in our chat room while listening to the streaming audio interview!
She is also the author of "Geckos: Day Geckos, Tokay Geckos plus New Caledonians and More!" and co-author, "Leopard Geckos: A complete guide to Eublepharine Geckos."
Julie will be talking with kingsnake.com's Cindy Steinle via streaming audio. Bring your questions!
Join the author of Rover! Get off her leg! and other top-selling pet books for an in depth look at how to handle common behavior problems once they arise, and better yet, how to keep them from happening in the first place!

Steve Dale and Kim Campbell Thornton
Kim and Steve both had beloved pets who succumbed to genetic disease, and they're going to be talking with Darlene Arden about the funds they established in those pets' memories to help other animals afflicted with the same condition.
Steve founded The Ricky Fund in memory of his Devon Rex cat Ricky, who died at the age of 4 of feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Kim founded The Darcy Fund in memory of her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Darcy, who died of mitral valve disease.
Find out more about these diseases, how the Funds have helped both other animals and also Kim and Steve, and how you might go about honoring a lost pet in a similar way.
The TTPG is involved with the dissemination of information about the world's turtles and tortoises and their proper care through talks at herpetological societies, Turtle Night at the National Reptile Breeders Expo, the TTPG Conference in Phoenix Reptile Expo, and through books, articles, care sheets, and their website. This, our final event of our 12th Annual Chat Month, marks the first of a regular TTPG group discussion that will be hosted on kingsnake.com
Get help with streaming audio here!
Audio chats will be available as podcasts for downloading on the site later.
