Tune in Tuesday, February 8th at 8:00pm CST as Janet Roper, host of Talk 2 the Animals will talk with me and Frankie about our latest efforts to expand on our mission to help animals with disabled pets.
Award-winning author Barbara Techel and her dog Frankie known as the "Walk 'N Roll Dog" have been dedicated to bringing a positive face to disabled animals, especially those diagnosed with Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) since 2007.
They share their message of hope with schools, libraries and organizations in Wisconsin and as well as via Skype. Frankie is also a certified therapy dog bringing joy to the sick, dying and lonely.
Though Barbara is not involved with rescue, she wanted to expand on her and Frankie’s mission by trying to help more animals with special needs. So she created Frankie’s Disabled Animal Rescue and Resource page which can be found on Facebook,http://www.facebook.com/frankiesdisabledanimalandresuce. This page is for any rescuers or humane societies, or anyone involved in finding homes for pets with special needs, to feel free to post photos and stories of special needs pets needing homes.
Help us spread the word by letting your local humane societies and rescuers know this page is there for them to share photos and stories of special needs pets they may have that need to find forever and loving homes. Together we can make a difference!
