“Animal radio,” America’s favorite and nationally syndicated pet show, is coming to Lake Tahoe’s South Shore in August to broadcast from Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care.

Animal radio will be in Lake Tahoe to raise national awareness of Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care’s immediate need for funding to buy land and the build a new facility to continue the care, feeding, and rehabilitation, and return to the wild of orphaned and injured animals from all over California.

Invited to Tahoe’s South Shore by AM1490 KOWL radio’s David Alan, the Animal Radio Network will broadcast from Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care at noon Saturday. The show consists of celebrity guests, features on all types of pets, and information from veterinarians and animal trainers that is valuable to pet owners. Hal Abrams and Judy Francis, hosts for the show, also answer live listener callÐin pet questions.

One of the main missions of the Animal Radio Network is “preventing pain, fear, and suffering of animals through nationwide education and awareness.” Visit

The Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care facility was established in 1977 and is at the home of Tom and Cheryl Millham, its founders.

When the facility was first built around the Millham’s home, there were only a few houses in the area. Now, the area around the facility has grown and the El Dorado County Supervisors want it moved.

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care needs a larger facility – the Millhams have said about 25 acres would be about right. This would allow for an animal care and rehabilitation facility as well as room to expand.
