Guest: Tod Emko, President and Founder of Darwin Animal Doctors.
The Galapagos Islands are a fascinating place, but under great stress due to tourism and growth, and until 2010 there were also issues with a dire lack of veterinarian services on the island.
That's where our guest Tod Emko comes in. Tod is founder of Darwin Animal Doctors and co-creator of A Piggy's Tale, the comic adventure tales of a 3-legged super dog, inspired by Tod's rescue pup, Piggy. In real life Piggy visits hospitals and schools for special needs children and was the inspiration behind the founding of Darwin Animal Doctors, which now runs free veterinary clinics and humane education programs in around the world.
