Diana and Patti express outrage over the light sentence that Santa Barbara’s Judge Hill,

Patti Teel

Patti Teel

imposed upon a 19 year old man who was convicted of felony animal cruelty.  This puppy was tortured throughout his short life and and died after suffering unimaginable abuse.  A March of Mourning is being planned in Santa Barbara on July 19th, to call attention to this light sentence and to show our lawmakers that we support maximum sentences for those convicted of felony animal cruelty. Like an ‘Amber Alert,’ Diana would also like to start a ‘Davey’s Alert’ to let communities throughout the country be on the alert for animal abusers.  Please come back to this site for more details about the upcoming march and ways you can help to call attention to the rights of animals.  For the latest information, you can also visit  https://www.facebook.com/justiceforpuppydavey

On a lighter note, Patti interviews Douglas Borcoman.  He created the first online Environmental Ethics course for Coastline College and for CSU (CA State University).  Douglas is the recipient of local and national awards for classroom and teaching excellence.  He’s also an avid hiker, poet, philosopher and astronomer.  He recently led a stargazing event at Sedona Mago Retreat and the enthusiastic response of participants was phenomenal!   To learn more about Douglas, visit https://philosophicalquest.coursesites.com/

The Diana Basehart Foundation is having a fundraiser on Saturday, May 17th from 3-6pm. It will take place at 2462 Golden Gate Ave–a private home in Summerland. There will be wine provided by Dog Hill Vineyard, Hors D’oeuvres, music by Glendessary Jam, art by renowned artist Valori Fussell, & more.

The Diana Basehart Foundation helps seniors, families & veterans on limited incomes to care for and keep their beloved pets by providing support for veterinary care and nutritional needs—all while minimizing the number of animals turned over to shelters. If you love animals and understand how vitally important it is for people to be able to care for their 4-legged family members, don’t miss this event. Enjoy a delightful afternoon while supporting a worthwhile cause. To RSVP, call 805-451-1771
