Sunday: Make dog treats, healing animals and people, animals and society, and collecting donations for needy pets.

Here’s who we have for Sunday’s program — and here’s how to listen anywhere in the world.

12:08 PM — Regular guest Christy Caplan will be here from her Washington State farm to share with us simple treats you can make for your dog. Recipes will be posted.

12:30 PM — Dr. Lisa Lunghofer of the Animals and Society Institute will be with us to talk about the intersection of people and animals, particularly dogs and cats, in our lives. We will discuss both the good and bad sides of this important relationship. Based in Ann Arbor, MI, ASI is the most scholarly of the organizations that at least occasionally appear on the program.

Dr. Lisa Lunghofer has 20 years of experience working successfully with public sector and nonprofit clients, helping them to create strategic plans, develop logic models, write successful grant proposals, develop evaluation plans, craft marketing materials, and identify and track outcomes. She has worked extensively in the areas of child welfare, violence prevention, child and adolescent well-being, animal welfare, and the human-animal bond. Since 2009, Lisa has served as a consultant to animal- and child-related programs throughout the country through her non-profit, Making Good Work. Examples of her work include:

  • Designing and leading implementation of an innovative education initiative, based on a public health model, to prevent animal cruelty in Philadelphia
  • Writing winning grant proposals for programs that promote the human-animal bond
  • Conducting strategic planning with animal and child welfare organizations
  • Evaluating the effects of shelter dogs on veterans suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
  • Conducting an analysis of the reasons for the return of rescue dogs in order to develop strategies to promote pet retention
  • Writing a winning grant proposal to SAMHSA for the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board, providing 1.6M to improve integration of primary and behavioral health care
  • Managing evaluations of programs designed to improve the well-being of children and families in Fairfax County, VA
  • Serving as the Principal Investigator of an evaluation of a delinquency prevention program for girls

1:08 PM — Cindie Ambar of Heartsong Animal Healing left a high-paying job in the Silicon Valley to pursue her life’s purpose of healing work with animals.

She has eleven years of experience performing healing work with animals of all kinds (wild and domestic) and volunteers doing pro bono healing work at sanctuaries and shelters.

Cindie is trained in multiple healing modalities and is continually upgrading her skills. She has been receiving messages from animals for quite some time and this year began formal training in animal communication.

Because animals are impacted by stressors in their environment, Cindie often works with animals human companions as well.

1:30 PM — John Hussey and Bridget Bowhay are from which collects donated products (that it sells to donors through its website) for needy animals and rescue organizations.
