We're coming to you from the PAWS ranch in the town
of Galt near Sacramento. "PAWS" stands for "Performing
Animal Welfare Society" and we'll take you inside their new facility
located in the Sierra Foothills.
Donkeys They're cute, cuddly and utterly irresistible. More
and more people are discovering the magic of miniature donkeys. Pat McConahay
introduces you to a woman who says her herd of tiny equines has changed
R Us With more than four thousand "kids" under
her care Terri Oyarzun might be one of the busiest moms around. We'll
show you how her business of using goats to clear overgrown brush has
truly become a family affair.
It's a ranch that's slightly different than what you might imagine, you
might even say its gone to the dogs. "Drummond Ranch" is a mecca
for dog owners who want to unlock their pet's inner herder, and as it
happens "herding" is the country's fastest growing dog sport.
Perhaps you've seen that bumper sticker, the one that says, "My
Border Collie Is Smarter Than Your Honor Student"? As we'll show
you, the statement might not be that far from the truth.
They're probably the cutest animals you'll ever see: short and sweet
miniature horses. Find out where they come from, how they got to be so
small, and where you can see them up close.
This week we profiled animal lover, Lynne Tingle. Lynne used to spend
her days advising customers about interior design at the trendy Berkeley
store, The Gardener. But after ten years in the retail business Lynne
decided animals were her true passion and in 1994 left city life and established
the Milo Foundation, a no-kill animal sanctuary, in rural Mendocino County.
