Additional Information: 

In the late 1930’s and early 1940’s, Cleveland-based radio station WTAM hosted a program called Uncle Henry’s Dog Club.  This button suggests that the program supported the Cleveland Animal Protective League and encouraged young listeners to do the same.  Incorporated in 1913, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is an independent, nonprofit humane society.  Even today, the organization continues to partner with a local radio station (Q104) in order to promote its cause.
