On November 19th I was asked to promote Kia & Hutton on Radio 104.1. Obviously the dogs were adopted just a few days after my phone interview. Well, after naming Impound # 1041 "FISCH" after Fisch the radio personality on 104.1 they asked to have us on the radio again but this time wanted us to bring FISCH into the station personally so we did!
THANK YOU to the entire RADIO 104.1 gang! I also want to thank Wendy Lou she was recently inspired to create the show after she adopted adopted a dog!! SHE ROCKS!!!
My interview on 104.1 about FISCH the dog with Fisch from 104.1

Thank you to Fisch for having Jimmy on RADIO 104.1!!!!
Between both days at PETPALOOZA we had over 500 people come out and support. For a first event at the Bridgeport Animal shelter we truly feel this was a success!! The WALK could not have been more perfect. The turnout was truly amazing! Thank you to all that came down and to all of our sponsors!!! I wasn't sure what to expect with Scaredy Cat but I was so happy to see so many come out and support! The costumes were amazing!!

3 to choose from.
On May 14th 2011, Chief Animal Control Officer Jimmy Gonzalez as a member of the CTSART team was asked to volunteer for the ASPCA in Memphis, TN. The ASPCA disaster response team assisted in Tennessee and worked with the Memphis Animal Services and the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County to establish an emergency shelter to prepare for severe flooding. Jimmy was also asked to assist the ASPCA in Pemiscot County, Mo., to assist with the sheltering of hundreds of displaced animals because of flooding. While on deployment Jimmy also assisted the ASPCA Field Services team in three different states to assist in the operation of emergency animal shelters to over nine hundred animals. Jimmy completed an assessment of damage from a Tornado impact area and prepared and was deployed as a dual target field rescue team that completed three mission assignments in under 12 hours in two states.
On June 11th 2011 Chief ACO Jimmy Gonzalez was asked by the ASPCA to assist in Joplin, MO. On May 23, the ASPCA deployed to Missouri to lead emergency sheltering efforts of animals displaced by the tornado. Working closely with the Joplin Humane Society, nearly 850 animals have since been rescued—with more than 200 beloved pets reunited with their families.
MAY GOD BLESS THE PEOPLE OF JOPLIN.
