Annemarie Lucas, ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement Officer and Star of Animal Precinct
Annemarie Lucas is a Supervisory Special Investigator for Humane Law Enforcement (HLE) at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). She has received training by both the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Annemarie is also the star of Animal Precinct.
Annemarie always had a love for animals. She also longed to be on the stage at an early age. Well, she has successfully combined the two as the Star of Animal Precinct. Nothing pleases Annemarie more than an arrest someone on animal cruelty charges. Even though she is out in the field on a weekly basis dealing with the "bad guys" she is not intimidated by the people she encounters because she has a secret weapon - her gift of gab.

Alexander - NBA Houston Rockets Owner
creator of Doggy DayCare DVD Don't Leave Home if Your Dog's Without It
What new project has Leslie Alexander, owner of the NBA Houston Rockets, taken on? If you guessed it had something to do with basketball, you couldn't be further from the truth. Leslie's new project is a Doggy DayCare DVD.
Leslie's own dog Joy would sleep through most of the day, except when he took her on vacation. Leslie decided it was the stimulation of nature. As a result, Doggy DayCare DVD was born. There are chapters on Nature & Nurture, Socialization & Belly Rubs, as well as Puppies & More. All profits from the sale of the DVD will be donated to animal charities. Get your copy today!
Despite Disability, Molly Takes Life in Stride
Mandy Evans stood along the edge of the sand with her dog. "You want to go for a walk on the beach?" she cooed. "You want to go for a walk on the beach?" Normally, this sort of frenzied baby talk would get most dogs all worked up. But her pug, Molly, didn't so much as wag her curly tail. She couldn't. With the lower half of her body paralyzed, she really doesn't have much sensation in it.
Inspired by her day-to-day experiences with her pug, Mrs. Evans has co-founded an online support group called "My Special Dog" for people with disabled pets. The intention of the site is not to focus on what the dogs can't do, but on what they can. Hear all about these special animals.
