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

[Click for Audio] As summer temperatures rise, so do potential dangers for our pets.

Things you can do to prevent heat related injuries are:

If you leave a pet in the car you need to check on them every few minutes - No Exceptions!

When the temperature outside is 80 degrees, the temperature inside your car can reach 100 degrees in 15 minutes, and 120 degrees in 30 minutes, even with the windows open half-way. This can be fatal!

Once the outside temperature reaches 70, if your pet doesn't need to go with you, the best place for them is probably at home.

Do not rely on the vehicle's air conditioning, or if you do, you must continue to check on your pet every few minutes to ensure that the vehicle and AC are still running.

Enjoy the summer but please make sure you keep yourself and your pet safe and comfortable
