Dog and cat lovers can find all kinds of information about the animals in their care on “For the Love of Animals,” a weekly radio program produced by Pinellas County Animal Services in cooperation with Inspiration AM1110 WTIS.
Each weekly installment profiles some of the programs and services provided by Pinellas County Animal Services. The show's veterinary segment provides medical advice on how to keep cats and dogs happy and healthy, and the mailbag portion of the program answers email questions received by county animal control officers.
"Dogs and cats are a huge part of everyone's life," said Len Ciecieznski in a press release. Ciecieznski, from Pinellas County Communications, hosts the show. "’For the Love of Animals’ looks at the issues concerning pet lovers and gives great advice on how to perfect the relationship between pet and pet owner."
