Dr. Gary Weitzman was appointed director of the Washington Animal Rescue League's Medical Center in 2004 and became the president and CEO in 2008. During his tenure, the League has become a nationally recognized leader in physical and behavioral rehabilitation, especially for animals involved in large-scale rescues from disasters, puppy mills, hoarders, and the like. Dr. Weitzman is also co-host of "The Animal House," heard on RADIO IQ and RADIO IQ With BBC News at 5:00 Saturday evenings, is public radio's weekly show devoted to animals, and the chair of the D.C. Board of Veterinary Medicine.
The Animal House is a weekly discussion on RADIO IQ and RADIO IQ With BBC News that explores the latest in animal science, pet behavior, and wildlife conservation. We hope to deepen human understanding of animals and explain the powerful bonds that link us to the animal world. Our goal is to be fun, substantive, and appealing to a broad audience -- both those with pets and those without them.
