Boca Raton, Fla. – Guests at the American Humane Sanctuary in West Palm Beach were treated to a special dinner dialogue led by Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane, animal policy expert and author New York Times bestselling pet nation, Mark Cushing. This informative discussion focused on “puppy ethics” – who has, who doesn’t, and where do these breeds we all love really come from?
“Here in Palm Beach we love our puppies and looking around you might not think there is a critical shortage of supply of high demand breeds,” said Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of American Humane. “But the truth is that we are facing a critical shortage of puppies in this country.”
“In 2005, pets were mostly props in American culture,” Mark Cushing said. “Today, the transformation of the backyard into our bedrooms has proven to be a major revolution affecting the American family. But in this context, we have problems that must be solved, including a shortage of veterinarians and an increase in puppy costs that not everyone can afford.
After eating butternut squash ravioli, fried green tomatoes and burrata, Sorrentino chicken and braised ribs, guests, including US President John Payne and his wife Nancy Payne, had time to continue the conversation about puppy ethics versus homemade cinnamon hazelnut donuts. mousse.
Other guests at the dynamic dinner included Caroline Harless, Catherine Hart, Herb Jablin, Dr. Mike Manyak, Ronnie Perl and American Humane Board Members Dawn Assenzio, Sharon Jablin, Marilyn Pelstring and Jean Shafiroff.
