Pet Connection: Meet Gidget

If Gidget looks familiar, it's because we've had her on the Morning Show before. The tiny senior citizen is celebrating her 106th day in hospice care, courtesy of Diamond in the Ruff pet rescue.…

Pet Connection: Meow-Maste

  This week's pet connection is a little different. Instead of bringing an adoptable pet in studio, Adam went out in search of animals in need of homes, and found a whole room…

Pet Connection: Coffee and Cuddles

It's the start of the biggest nonprofit fundraiser drive of the year. Giving Hearts Day comes in February each year, and each year with it comes millions of dollars in funds donated from folks…

Pet Connection: Meet Virginia

If you know "Meet Virginia," by the band Train, you probably know it's about a woman who, in the words of the song, "loves babies and surprises....wears high heels when she exercises...she's beautiful." This…

Pet Connection: Meet Kaylee

If you woke up Christmas morning and the puppy you asked for wasn't  under the Christmas tree, it's still not too late. Kaylee came to join us this holiday season on the KVRR Morning…

Pet Connection: Meet Murr

Okay, so they don't spell it the same as the Biblical gifts the three wise men gave to baby Jesus -- frankincense, gold and myrrh. But big kitty Murr is a treasure in his…

Pet Connection: Meet Tesha

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Not Tesha, that's for sure. The 8-year-old German Shepherd is recovering from a recent amputation of her right forelimb. While a lot of us…

Pet Connection: Meet Murphy

Murphy the Maltese mix might just be the perfect dog for the holiday season. With his soft white fur and big brown eyes, he could be a tiny little Saint Nick -- or maybe…

Pet Connection: Meet Lila

Lila couldn't have come into the studio at a better time. When all the forecasts are calling for a sudden drop back to normal from our record-setting warmth, one of Lila's favorite activities is…

Pet Connection: Meet Whitley

If Christmas elves came in dog form, you would probably have something that looked like Whitley. The year-old, four-pound Chihuahua/teacup poodle cross arrived at the KVRR Morning Show dressed in a red and green…

Pet Connection: Meet Dottie

Dottie is one of those cats whose personality is even more lovely than her looks -- and that's really saying something with this stunning feline. Not only does she have that striking spot on…

Pet Connection: Meet Jellybean

Jellybean is shivering when she arrives at the KVRR Morning Show studios, and not just because it's in the single digits outside. The tiny chihuahua is also nervous as heck, but she's cooperative and…

Pet Connection: Meet Diva and Nubby

Are you in the market for a cockatiel? How about two? No? How about nearly 50 of them? Most of us aren't really ready to care for 49 of any species of animal, let…

Pet Connection: Meet Fetty

Fetty might look tough, but he's all squishy on the inside. Let's face it, a life like his is bound to result in some tenderizing. First of all, the four-year-old pit bull already had…

Pet Connection: Meet Pascal

He may come in a pint-sized package, but Pascal packs a lot of personality into it. The 2-year-old Chihuahua was rescued by Homeward Animal Shelter from a local pound, and he visited live in-studio…

Pet Connection: Meet Gidget

If you were to encounter Gidget the way her rescuers did, you might not believe your eyes at first: a tiny, geriatric  Pomeranian, missing most of her teeth, suffering from an enlarged heart, tottering…

Pet Connection: Meet Kooky

Kooky is the latest little bundle of feathers and fun who's looking for a forever home courtesy of the rescue workers at Center for Avian Adoption, Rescue and Education, or CAARE here in the…

Pet Connection: Meet Iris

Iris is a Pitbull mix who is around five years old. She will be up for adoption in a couple months because she is recovering from heartworm surgery. Iris's life has not been…

Pet Connection: Meet Tootsie and Daisy

Some of the sweetest flowers bloom in circumstances of adversity, just like this week's adoptable pets Tootsie and Daisy. The Nanday conure and orange-winged Amazon, a bonded pair, were discovered on a Facebook page…

Pet Connection: Meet Sylvia

Just as the fall colors start to show themselves and we all start thinking about Halloween on the horizon,  a black cat turns up who's as sweet as a piece of Halloween candy. Sylvia's…
