Catch Up with the Dumb Friends League Pawcast!

We launched a Pawcast earlier this year that gives you an inside look at all things Dumb Friends League and animal welfare. Whether you want to know more about how animals are cared for at the League, how to become a volunteer, or why puppies can be so destructive, this podcast, ahem Pawcast, is for you.

What’s covered in the episodes?

Five episodes have been released so far. We suggest starting from episode one to get introduced to our hosts and the segments. The next three episodes cover pet behavior with one of the League’s very own behavior expert Marissa Martino. In these episodes we discuss everything from separation anxiety in pets to how to house train your new puppy. This behavior series is a must-listen for anyone thinking about adopting a new pet. The fifth episode covers the League’s foster program. We interview our Director of Shelter Veterinary Services, Tori Williams, to learn more about what it takes to be a foster parent and dispel the common myths that go along with fostering. Then we hear from a first-time foster parent and learn about his wonderful journey with his foster dog, Harley.

Every episode includes a Staff Favorites segment where you can learn about some adorable, adoptable pets at the League.

Where can I listen?

New episodes come out the third Wednesday of every month. You can listen by going to or by searching “Dumb Friends League Pawcast” on SpotifyApple Podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. Don’t forget to subscribe so that you never miss an episode!
