Guest: Wayne Pacelle

From a California start-up that produces a plant-based egg substitute, to conventional pet stores like Petco and PetSmart that have chosen shelter dogs over puppy mills, there are new solutions in the world of animal welfare. In this hour of Radio Times, Marty talks with WAYNE PACELLE, the president of The Humane Society of the United States, about the entrepreneurs, scientists and Fortune 500 CEOs who are using creativity to overcome animal cruelty. Pacelle outlines this new approach to protecting animals in his new book The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals.
