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

Don Hanson, Producer & Co-Host

Don interviews Executive Director Vince Ewald from The Ark Animal Shelter in Cherryfield, ME. We discuss the long history of The Ark, its mission, how it accomplishes that mission, the Ark’s amazing corps of volunteers, their spay/neuter efforts and educational programs. Of course, we discuss the type of pets one can find at the Ark and how you can help them find a forever home. We even talk about the debut of a children’s book, Hope for Someday, written by Vince and illustrated by the President of The Ark’s Board, Tom Leigh. It is the story of two pups who find their way into a shelter much like The Ark. If you have a child in your life, I recommend it highly!

Lastly, we discuss a seminar Don and Kate will be presenting on October 28th. Their seminar Understanding Dog Behavior, Communication, and Learning is a fundraiser for The Ark Animal Shelter and will take place on Saturday, October 28th in the community room at Machias Savings Bank in Brewer. The cost is $50, and all proceeds will go to The Ark.

Understanding Dog Behavior, Communication, and Learning will examine the facts and myths about canine behavior and discuss how people and dogs communicate so that we have a better understanding of one another. Don and Kate will also discuss how dogs learn and humane training methods. During lunch, we will show the documentary film Pet Fooled which talks about the pet food industry. After lunch, Kate and Don will be available for a 60-minute question and answer period.
