Pet Connection: Meet Janet

Janet Is A Pug With A Ton Of Perseverance

  First, great new for our new friend Patsy. She’s a 2 1/2 year old Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler cross with a lot of energy. Our friends at Homeward Animal Shelter were looking for a foster home for her last week. The good news is, they found out. The better news is, she’s pending permanent adoption. We hope everything works…

Patsy Has A TON Of Energy And Is Looking For A Foster Home

  We’re changing things up for Pet Connection during the coronavirus crisis. We can’t have people bring pets in studio because of social distancing. But we’re still here for you with the furry goodness. And One of the silver linings of social distancing is that you might have more time to help care for a new pet. If you can’t…

Pet Connection Success: Simon

Simon Got The Ring The Adoption Bell This Weekend

  More and more people are looking to foster or adopt animals locally as we try and protect ourselves from COVID-19 by staying home. A silver lining for all this social distancing is that more pets are finding their homes, including this excited guy. That’s Simon ringing the adoption bell at C.A.A.R.E. bird rescue in West Fargo. He found his…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Callisto

Callisto's a cuddler who wants to be your one true love.

Callisto is a girl’s name that means “most beautiful,” and whomever named this dog was sure on to something. With her fetching ear spots, a charming patch over one eye just like Petey the Pup from the Little Rascals, and sweet smile, she’s one of the prettiest American bulldog crosses you’ll ever come across. She came to Homeward Animal Shelter…

LIVE: Meet Jewls (Again)

A jewel who needs a new setting to really shine.

Jewls is a dog who truly lights up when she meets you.

She loves to cuddle as much as she loves to play, and distributes kisses with enthusiasm to anyone interested. At about a…

Simon Says "Adopt Me!"

The way to a guy’s heart is often through his stomach. Simon proved that when he swooped in for this week’s Pet Connection, from C.A.A.R.E. He’s a 32-year-old Blue-fronted Amazon, and he loves his treats, everything from fruits and veggies, to eggs, chicken bones and proper bird food. He warmed up to C.A.A.R.E. volunteer Lydia Leopold pretty quickly with a…

Pet Connection: Meet Jeff

Jeff Is A Charming 2-Year-Old Tabby

  I love animals with people names. It’s not hard to become friends with Jeff. The two-year-old tabby loves people, including kids. He loves other cats. He loves dogs. In fact, he broke into a home through a doggy door and quickly made friend with a local family. The couldn’t keep him, but they surrendered him to Homeward Animal Shelter….

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet the Puppies

Does it get any better than this?

PUPPIES. Need we say more? Two seven-week-old bundles of warm, wiggly, snuggly kisses and cuddles stopped by the Morning Show studios to say hello and let us know they’re just one week away from being up for adoption. Their foster names are Twix (the boy) and Lollipop (the girl), and they couldn’t be sweeter. The pittie puppies came to 4…

Milo Is Looking For The Right Guy To Give Him A Good Home

  If Milo likes you, you’re in for a treat. He is a super talkative, flirty, charismatic bird. And he can be yours! He’s a Mexican Red-Headed Amazon Parrot from our friends at C.A.A.R.E. They think he’s about 16-year-old. He does prefer men to women, and can be pretty loud so he would need to go to someone with a…
