Pet Connection: Meet Bob

Bob is a 15-year-old macaw who needs a seasoned bird owner

  Bob the macaw joins us from our friends at C.A.A.R.E. Bob is a 15-year-old Harlequin Macaw. He’s a cross between a blue and gold winged and green winged macaw. Macaw’s like him can live up to 80 years. He’s very loving, but needs a lot of attention. He can also be quite loud and needs to live in a…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Robin

She's a bundle of energy.

Robin is a cat who comes to Homeward Animal Shelter after being rescued from the local pound, and she’s the perfect example of why it’s so great to have the help of rescue workers when you’re choosing a new pet to bring home. Her profile says she’s sweet, well-mannered, cuddly and playful. She doesn’t care for other cats. However, instead…

PET CONNECTION: Meet Oscar

Oscar The Umbrella Cockatoo Joins Us

  Oscar the Umbrella Cockatoo joins us from the Center for Avian Adoption, Rescue and Education in West Fargo. He’s a 14-year-old bird who is very talkative and loves to sing. He’s a smart cookie who can untie knots and take apart mechanical items. He loves his baths and getting his feathers blow dried. He can be a bit on…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet the Kittens

Left for dead in a dumpster, their survival's nothing short of miraculous.

It’s hard to believe looking at these three furry, adorable faces, but there’s someone out there in our region who didn’t want these kittens to survive. The three tiny kittens, plus a brother and a sister, were discovered a few weeks ago in a bag thrown in a dumpster. The bag they were inside was covered in some kind of…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Buck

The cutest little feathered buckaroo around.

Want to meet a bird who bucks expectations? How about Buck — a bird who meows like a cat? And tells you, “Buck’s in charge” — a pretty surprising assertion from a little buckaroo who only weighs a few ounces. But with a personality this big in a package this little, it shouldn’t surprise us at all. Buck came to…

Pet Connection: Meet Kiwi

She's as sweet as her namesake.

Kiwi was picked up from the city pound already about to become a mom. The sweet-natured little kitty shortly thereafter gave birth to a litter of kittens, and has since bounced back from the experience to get ready for her own adoption. She’s delightful company who loves to cuddle and enjoys big dogs as much as she does people. Other…

Pet Connection: Meet ALL THE KITTIES

Homeward Animal Shelter Is Offering Discounted Adoption Fees Due To Influx Of Kittens

We’re in the kitten ward at Homeward Animal Shelter with Heather Klefstad looking at some of the adorable young kittens available for adoption. Right now Homeward has a glut of kittens, 50 to be exact. More kittens come to the shelter during spring and summer months, but this year is excessive. We meet two kittens, Denver and Wilbury, two eight-week-old…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Bosco (Again)

Help us find this senior weiner a better fit.

If you live to be as old as Bosco is, chances are, you’ll have seen some heartbreak in life. This little old gent broke our hearts when he was returned by his adoptive owners, just in time for his 15th birthday next month. So Bosco came back for a second Pet Connection appearance live in-studio, this time with volunteer rescue…

Pet Connection: Meet Greta

Greta Is A 6-Year-Old Lab From Homeward Animal Shelter

  Greta is a super well-behaved six-year-old lab from our friends at Homeward Animal Shelter. She is a happy-go-lucky dog with a lot of love to give. She’s a quick learner who knows her tricks. She is good with other dogs and older kids, but may not be the best dog for small children. Greta is a diabetic and needs…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Doug

"I was hiding under your porch because I love you. Can I stay?"

If you remember those lines from the Pixar movie “Up”, then you probably remember one of the most charming and goofy animated dogs ever committed to the screen. It’s Dug, the talking dog, and this week’s Pet Connection pet Doug bears a remarkable resemblance to him, especially when it comes to personality. 5-year-old lab mix Doug and Diamond in the…
