Diana Basehart has started a new foundation to help elders and others on limited incomes care for and keep their beloved companion animals by providing support for veterinary, behavioral and traditional needs, while also minimizing the number of animals being turned over to shelters. There is a great need for this type of help in the Santa Barbara area and if you would like to help–please contact the foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org Diana also discussed her early efforts to protect animals and treat them humanely. She and her husband Richard Basehart co-founded Actors & Others for Animals.
This was truly an inspiring show and Frank and I were honored to be in the presence of a woman who has made such a difference in the lives of so many. Visit her website at
Toward the end of the show, Don L Higley shares an original poem about dogs and our love for them. You can view his poem on the Don L. Higley page.
