Fourth of July is just around the corner, and while it’s typically a time for celebration, it can signify a time of devastating loss for pet owners. More runaway and lost pets end up in animal shelters on the 4th of July than any other day of the year, and during the summer months, the number of lost pets increases by 30%. Tagg—The Pet Tracker is an advanced GPS tracking device which allows pet owners to track and locate their best friend via the web or mobile device, whether it’s a normal day or during a time of crisis.


Tagg will send the pet parent an alert via email or text message if Fluffy or Fido wanders outside their designated safe area. The lightweight Tagg tracker attaches to a cat or dog’s existing collar, is designed to be worn at all times, and can operate for up to 30 days before recharging. A Tagg master kit is $99.95 which includes one month of free service; after the first month, service is $7.95/month. The Tagg gps pet tracking system is available in four colors: White, Pink, Gray and Blue and can be purchased online at,,, Tagg master kits are also now sold at Target and Apple retail locations for $99.95 with three months of service.

Graduated from Penn State University in 1983 and landed my first broadcasting job at the flagship station to SUN Radio Network in St. Petersburg, FL as a producer of talk radio. In 3 months advanced to a network producer, then on air as a national eventually local weather reporter for the Tampa Bay area. Held a position in management as a trainer to new hosts and producers and later Affiliate Relations Manager, eventually in 1990 started hosting, Talkin' Pets. Left SUN radio several years later and worked with USA Radio Networks for 1 year. I worked with Business TalkRadio & Lifestyle TalkRadio Networks for19 years under the title of V.P. Affiliate Relations and Programming, later worked with Genesis Communications until starting a new network ATRN.  Currently working with GAB Radio Network and with Josh Leng at Talk Media Network.  I am still hosting the largest and longest running pet radio and internet show in the country, Talkin' Pets, for the past 29 years... My one true passion in life is to help to educate the world through interviews with celebrities like Betty White, Tippi Hedren, Bob Barker, Linda Blair and others, authors, foundations and organizations like the ASPCA, LCA, HSUS, AHA, WSPA on the ways to make this world a better place for all animals and mankind whom all share this very fragile and mysterious planet called earth. This is the only home we have so we all need to learn how to share and maintain it so that life for us all continues and evolves forever... | This email address is being protected from spambots.
