FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 14, 2012
‘Tis the season of giving and no animal should go without! That’s why the Seattle Humane Society and Safeway have teamed up again for our annual Holiday Pet Food Drive to help fill the shelves of our Pet Food Bank. Look for collection barrels in your local King County Safeway store throughout December. Pick up a few extra cans of pet food or a bag of dry pet food – and drop them in! Dry cat food is our greatest need.
Seattle Humane Society’s Pet Food Bank provides pet food every month to more than 1,700 pets belonging to low-income seniors and people disabled by AIDS. Thanks to the Pet Food Bank, more than 1,300 pet owners each month don’t have to choose between self care and pet care. Our volunteers pack, load and deliver this canned and dry pet food to local senior centers, low-income housing complexes, food banks and individual homes. Help us help pets, and people too, by giving to the Seattle Humane Society Pet Food Bank this holiday season.Ways you can help!

I have been training dogs and their people for over 25 years. I work with pups from 7 weeks old to senior plus dogs and offer basic obedience to advanced off leash training both privately and group classes. Other services include behavior consultations to help both ends of the leash with everything from aggression, puppy/dog manners and public manners to separation anxiety. As a "real world" dog trainer, I take training out of the classroom or home when both the pet and family are ready, and take training to the street. I also offer pet therapy training classes preparing both the handler and dog for their therapy test and future service as a therapy team. I also coordinate several pet therapy programs in the Seattle area. My complete bio, description of services, class dates and on line class registration is listed on my website at
