PRLog - Nov. 16, 2012 - DALLAS -- Irving, TX - Most Americans, even the many millions who have adopted from shelters and animal rescue groups, have little idea of just how complex and expansive the world of animal rescue, protection and conservation is. Radio Free Rescue (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/radiofreerescue) is a new online radio show devoted exclusively to exploring that world. Its mission is to provide an educational, inspirational and entertaining forum for rescue professionals and volunteers to share their stories and expertise with the wider public.

Broadcast every Monday evening at 8:00 US Central, Radio Free Rescue features a new guest each episode and allows listeners to either call in to speak directly with the guest or host, or submit their questions and comments on the show page’s chat forum. Archived episodes can be downloaded from the show page or heard via streaming audio within an hour or so after their original broadcast.

“When I first became involved in rescue, I had no idea how extensive the community is,” Marjorie Asturias, host and producer of Radio Free Rescue, explained. “It’s not just the companion animal rescues, breed-specific rescues, wildlife sanctuaries, but there’s the farm animal protection movement, the circus protests, the equine protection movement -- the list goes on. And that doesn’t include all of the folks who are working on marine mammal protection, ocean conservation, SeaWorld protests, and of course the vegan movement. The list of advocacy groups and causes is endless.”

The inaugural broadcast on November 5, 2012, featuring Harp Seals DFW founder Brian Lochlaer has since generated nearly 1,000 downloads from the show’s archives, indicating a significant interest in this new medium in which to promote and advocate for rescue.

Guests who have confirmed their participation in future episodes include Elise Bissell of Richardson’s Take Me Home Pet Rescue; Alex Lewis of Fins and Fluke; David Kirby, New York Times bestselling author of Death at SeaWorld; and representatives of the Texas Humane Legislative Network and the Animal Legal Defense Fund.


Broadcast live every Monday evening at 8:00 pm US Central, Radio Free Rescue features interviews with professionals, volunteers, activists, and other prominent figures in the animal rights, protection and conservation movement. The hour-long call-in program, part of the BlogTalkRadio network, is hosted and produced by Marjorie R. Asturias, an animal rights activist and board member of the Richardson, Texas-based Take Me Home Pet Rescue (http://www.takemehomepetrescue.com/). For more information, visit www.radiofreerescue.com
