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

In part 4 of this four part series, Don and Kate interview Dr. Ron Schultz, Professor and Chair of the Department of Pathobiological Sciences at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison   Dr. Schultz is one of the foremost authorities on animal immunology and vaccinations. In this show we'll talk to Dr. Schultz about The Rabies Challenge Fund. This research project was initiated by Kris Christine, a Mainer whose dog Meadow developed a malignant tumor at the sire of his Rabies vaccination.  Working with Dr. Jean Dodds and Dr. Schultz, and with the donations from dog clubs as well as individual animal owners, the funds research goal is to demonstrate that the Rabies vaccine is effective for 5 to 7 years. Many of you that know Don know that his Golden Retriever had a serious reaction to a Rabies vaccine when she was young. Though she lived to sixteen, it greatly affected her life. This series of shows with Dr. Schultz are a kick-off to a fundraising campaign Don, Paula and Green Acres are holding to raise money in to further the work of the Rabies Challenge Fund and to memorialize Tikken.
