Welcome to Maine’s radio show and podcast all about dogs and cats and the people that share their lives. Our goal is to inform and educate you about the needs and wants of your furry friends so that your lives together can be the best that they can be. 

Kate and I discuss the latest news from the pet world covering a wide range of topics such as; basic healthcare, how to choose a good cat or dog food, training, behavior, and management of your pet, resolving problem behavior, serious health issues, and more. Sometimes a show is just the two of us having a conversation, but we also have guests on the shows from our hometown, Bangor, ME and from all throughout the USA. Veterinarians, authors, trainers, behaviorists, filmmakers, shelter managers, and others have all shared their knowledge with us on The Woof Meow Show

Whether you listen to our podcast or to the show as it is broadcast on Saturday at 9 AM on Z62 Retro Radio AM620, WZON, and WKIT HD3, we hope you find the show enjoyable and a valuable resource and that you become a regular listener. If you have a topic you would like us to consider for the show, contact me at

If you are thinking about getting a dog, this is the show for you! In the course of their combined 40+ years as pet care professionals, Kate and Don have worked with numerous people to help them find a dog that best fits their lifestyle and situation, that is, in essence, the “right dog, for them and their family.” In this second in a two show series, Don and Kate discuss additional factors to consider when getting a dog, including; size, coat type, resources, and where to get the dog of your dreams. They also have a frank discussion about getting a dog from a breeder, shelter or rescue and offer suggestions on what to look for as well as warning signs that indicate a source may not be the best place to get a dog.

An article on this topic can be found at Don’s blog, by searching for “Finding the Right Dog for You and Your Family.”

 Green Acres Kennel Shop also offers a free Which Pet for Me/Our Family? That gives you an opportunity to meet with Don & Kate. Call us at 945-6841 to schedule an appointment.
