Welcome to the Pet Place!
The Pet Place is an organization
that promotes responsible pet ownership and adoption of pets from shelters and rescues.
We believe adoption is a commitment that must last for the lifetime
of a pet and that animals are not disposable property.
We encourage pet owners to spay and neuter their companion animals and
to ensure they have identification at all times
(I.D. tags, microchips, etc.). We oppose breed discrimination, puppy
mills, impulse pet purchasing, and back-yard
breeding. Our primary missions are to offer people educational resources that
will allow them to make good decisions with
regards to their pets' welfare and to support and promote shelters and rescues.
Please help us continue with our efforts. We rely of viewer and listener support to continue these activities.
On behalf of the animals, thank you for being fans of the Pet Place.
Place was created in 1990 by Fred Bergendorff. Initially, the Pet Place Television show aired on Charter Cable in Long
Beach, with Fred as its host, but soon after, the show became a regular fixture on KDOC-TV 56. Fred continued hosting the
show until 2007 when serious health issues forced his departure. Mickey Laszlo, his long time co-host and "Pet Place correspondent-in-the-field"
assumed hosting duties. Marie Hulett joined the Pet Place in 1991. At that time, she was a Lieutenant with Orange
County Animal Control and the Orange County Register Pets Columnist. (Her columns continue to be a regular feature with the
paper and remain popular with readers.) Marie would showcase shelter pets, talk about coexisting safely with urban wildlife,
and explain humane laws for Pet Place viewers. She later went behind the scenes to produce and direct the weekly program.
Gary Lycan became part of the Pet Place Family in 1992, and served as producer, executive producer, and host. Gary served
on the Pet Place Board as President until his death in the Spring of 2013. Marie Hulett is currently serving as the Pet
Place president and welcomes suggestions and ideas from the public on how to better promote pet adoptions from shelters
and rescues. All Shelters and rescues are encourage to contact The Pet Place to receive free promotion.
