On this week's The Pet Show with Dr. Katy, we've got an update on animals on The Hill and how to prevent Lyme disease in your pets!

Richard Patch, Vice President of Federal Affairs for the ASPCA, joins us to talk about how the ASPCA is helping to keep animals, and people, safe in the United States by promoting legislation that defend animal rights.

The Farm Bill (H.R. 6083) contains language about the Animal Fighting Spectator Act which would allow prosecution of people who attend animal fighting events, not just those who are engaged in the actual fight. The SAFE (Safeguard American Food Exports - S. 541 / H.R. 1094) Act will also hit the Senate floor this Summer, and would ban horse slaughter in the United States.

Finally, the Agriculture Appropriations Bill is also up for approval in the House, and this one can certainly make a huge impact on animals around the US. To help the ASPCA get these bills approved, go to the ASPCA's website to learn how!

We've got DOUBLE the Adorable Adoptables this week, with our first pet coming to us from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria! Raja is a 2-year-old pure bred Bengal who is looking for a very special home. Learn more about this rambunctious boy and why Bengals are a very different type of cat from your every day Domestic Short Hair. Also, learn how your pet can become a "Cover Model" in the AWLA's Annual Calendar Contest!

Damien Sanchez, owner of the DC Mosquito Squad, gives some great tips on how to prevent Lyme Disease in pets by reducing the risk of tick bites in your yard. Lyme Disease is not just a "Northeastern" disease, it's now been diagnosed in all 48 of the lower states, so make sure you know how to keep your pets safe.

And finally, Mandie Worsley, Foster Coordinator for the Washington Animal Rescue League, joins us with an incredibly Adorable Adoptable pup named "Confetti" who is looking for a forever home. WARL is involved in the $100K ASPCA Rachael Ray Adoption Challenge, and we learn how we all can help them to win $100,000 to help the animals of Washington D.C.!

Don't miss it!
