An act of dog https://www.actofdog.org embodies the message and outcry of awareness, artistic tribute and creative expression for the thousands of dogs needlessly, unceremoniously and horrifically killed in American shelters each day. Shelters by their very definition are there to “rescue” not destroy. But destroy they do and in astounding numbers.

1. Can You Tell Us Something About Yourself?
“My name is Barbara and I have worked with at least 33 different publications in my lifetime from Conde Nast’s ‘Self Magazine’ to the Rock n Roll ‘Creem Magazine’. I have worked in every arena of publishing from circulation and editorial to advertising and business development. My most memorable association was a 10 year relationship with Andy Warhol and his publication ‘Interview Magazine’ in NYC, LA and San Francisco. I now publish my own digital pet lifestyle publication ‘Lick Magazine’ which has been a complete joy! I can work on my magazine 7 days a week because it never feels like work!”
2. When and Why Did You Start Your Pet Lifestyle Magazine “Lick”?
“I have been in the publishing industry over 20 years and I was very happy with my career. But in 2008, the industry collapsed because of the recession. It was time for many people and industries to reinvent themselves. I soul-searched and I thought about the force that was always constant in my life. It was not people, it was not companies, it was pets. Unlike people, animals have no agenda, they are love. That is how the pet lifestyle magazine ‘Lick’ came to be.”
3. What Is “Lick Magazine” About?
“‘Lick Magazine’ is a multi-media platform that is about pets and their people. ‘Lick’ promotes love, respect, compassion and understanding for all animals including the human animal. We feature celebrities and interesting people who have a common passion for animals.”
4. Why Is Peecho The Solution For You?
“I found Peecho by accident and it has been a great experience. They print my product with great care, always top quality paper stock and reproduction. Fast shipping and best of all real customer service. They love people and the products have a boutique feel. An overall excellent experience. I am open to growing with Peecho and working with them on other projects. Peecho makes their customers number one and working with my rep has been a positive experience.”
