See what Dr. Marty Becker is up to:

“Our nation’s shelters are full of wonderful companions who want nothing more than to give unconditional love to someone. The thought of those precious lives being lost simply because they have no home is unbearable. I ask you to join me in standing up for pet adoption on Remember Me Thursday® by sharing stories of your beloved shelter pets, encouraging others to adopt, and raising your voice and your prayers for the homeless pets in your community.”

Dr. Marty Becker has spent his life working toward better health for pets and the people who love them. The author of 23 books, he was the resident veterinary contributor on “Good Morning America” for 17 years, and serves on the board of directors of Pet Partners, Grey Muzzle and World Vets. In recent years, his realization that it’s impossible to provide for pets’ physical well-being without equal focus on their emotional well-being led him to found Fear Free, which has revolutionized the care of animals. The Beckers live in Northern Idaho with their adopted pets, including their “canine cocktail,” QT Pi, a distemper survivor shelter puppy and Talley, a hard-luck kitten who joined their family to become their first house cat. There Almost Heaven Ranch is also home to six quarter horses.
