H.R.3858 – Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act of 2006
To amend the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act to ensure that State and local emergency preparedness operational plans address the needs of individuals with household pets and service animals following a major disaster or emergency.
THIS WAS PASSED INTO LAW. HOTELS/MOTELS MUST ALLOW PETS AND SERVICE ANIMALS IN THEIR BUSINESS AND ROOMS DURING A MAJOR DISASTER OR EMERGENCY NO MATTER WHAT THEIR CORPORATE POLICY MIGHT BE.
Wolfdog Radio and its listeners have taken the bull by the horns and have sent some much needed items to Jerry and Donna Mills, with more to follow from WDR very shortly.
Wolfdog Radio started a GoFundMe account for Hurricane Harvey which we will be closing so that the efforts to raise monies for Jerry and Donna Mills, who lost EVERYTHING in their home and pretty much have the clothes on their back plus a very few things they grabbed when they had to leave Tuesday night from their home and property, can be better coordinated as described below.
We fully support and hope that everyone wishing to assist Jerry and Donna utilize the National Lupine Associations’s Disaster Relief Fund EASY to use site found here: http://www.floridalupine.org/index-6.html (scroll down and click “donate” (option 2)) which will ensure they receive the entire amount as NLA has a cap on funds a party can receive UNLESS the donator specifies the donation to go to a specific person. PLEASE donate today. All donations are tax deductible.
Wolfdog Radio is also very appreciative of Nancy LaPorta Brown and Full Moon Farm, who have graciously allowed Wolfdog Radio to partner with them in seeking donations from businesses and corporations to better serve the needs of Jerry and Donna and possibly others who are in so much need from the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.
Wolfdog Radio asks that anyone that wishes to ship or send anything to Jerry or Donna to PLEASE contact Greg Largent at firstname.lastname@example.org, PM or text me or call me, as Wolfdog Radio would like to make those shipped donations tax deductible and to co-ordinate the materials ship to addresses and for required record keeping of tax deductible donations.
THANK YOU ALL!
My name is Greg Largent. I am a Producer with Wolfdog Radio. In light of Hurricane Harvey’s making landfall sometime within the next 9 – 12 hours and the projected devastation from upwards of 30 inches of rain, hurricane winds of 125+ MPH and the horrific flooding that is forecast from this storm making landfall near Corpus Christi, Wolfdog Radio has started this GoFundMe account to assist wolfdog owners that will be impacted by Hurricane Harvey. This storm system may possibly make it’s way back into the Gulf sometime Tuesday and making a second landfall near Houston.
100% of the proceeds from your donations, minus the GoFundMe charge, will be distributed to those wolfdog owners impacted the most.WolfdogRadio.com provides an avenue for the discussion of topics relative to wolfdogs and wolves. An accounting of the funds will be made on the Wolfdog Radio webpage for open accounting purposes. PLEASE donate!! Stand with the ANIMALS and help Wolfdog Radio assist them after this catastrophic storm passes. THANK YOU!!

This is a really big deal for ANYONE that has a 501c3 designation with, for or about exotics of any kind. Holders of any type of USDA Federal Permit will be those that will be impacted by the changes that will come from these proposed changes. Owners and anyone having anything to do with an exotic animal, wolves and wolfdogs needs to read this. Those that seek permits in the future will also be impacted. READ the notice top to bottom as their are definite areas that everyone will need to read and questions have been asked within the NOTICE that USDA is seeking comments from the public. Pass this to anyone that deals with USDA permits or owns/cares for exotic animals.
Let your VOICES BE HEARD!!!!!!! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
The Photo above is of Cattle Grazing in the Gila National Forest in New Mexico in part of what is known as the Blue Range Mexican Wolf Recovery Zone.—Locals call it the Yellowstone of the South because of the diverse wildlife and beautiful scenery.
An invasive species is here also —Cattle —when you get cattle and wolves together they mix like oil and vinegar—they are not meant to be with each other.
It is a big problem and in 2014 Wildearth Guardians from New Mexico launched a buy out program where they would get donors to contribute to raise money to buy back grazing allotments from the ranchers and the U.S. Forest Service.
These cattle are part of one ranchers herd of 200 or so who graze on two public lease land allotments totaling , 28,000 acres right smack in the middle of three known packs of Mexican Gray Wolves. But back in 2014 this rancher was working with wildearth guardians so they could ” buy him out “— the rancher stated he was tired of losing his calves. This man is really a small rancher compared to a lot of others in the west and it is the small ranchers through research I have found that work with advocacy groups to try to co-exist with wolves , in the case of this rancher , he stated that he used non lethal means to keep wolves at bay , but being a small rancher , he suffers more heavily than the big corporate ranchers so I believe this is why he wanted out .
Wildearth guardians had trouble lining up sponsors for donations for this buy out program because many along with wildearth guardians did not trust the U.S. Forest Service to uphold the leases that would be bought out to prohibit any more grazing on these allotments. So you see , there are many things going on all over where wolves live that many do not hear about and of the ones that I have read about —these individual ideas and battles always lead back to the state governments , but mainly our federal government .
We have to have the Taylor grazing act amended to favor Endangered Species like the wolf—-and maybe a law passed that would force the U.S. Forest Service to allow these kind of Buy Out options to proceed and be implemented.
