Morning – Pet Connection

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Harrington

Want a kiss from a handsome young fellow? Harrington's your guy.

He may be only 12 weeks old, but handsome little Harrington already has his charm game down pat. The black domestic shorthair kitten came in to Homeward Animal Shelter from the local pound, and he’s hardly stopped purring since then. Harrington gets along with everybody, old friend or stranger. Homeward Animal Shelter’s Heather Klefstad accompanied him on his visit to…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Buzz

He's light years ahead of the competition for cutest doggo.

We’re all abuzz about our newest Pet Connection guest this morning. Buzz is an electrifying little dog with tons of energy and charm, but who knows how to settle in and focus when there’s a need. The two-year-old Miniature Pinscher/Dachsund cross loves to play and likes to be on the go, enjoying car rides and games with both people and…

PET CONNECTION: Meet Mango

Mango Isn't Your Typical Parrot

  Meet Mango in this week’s Pet Connection. Mango is a 10-year-old Eclectus Parrot from our friends at C.A.A.R.E. Eclectus Parrots are not your typical birds.

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Miss Sophia

Believe me, she'll keep you busy all on her own.

You might think it’s less fun to have one dog than two. Miss Sophia is here to prove you wrong. The year-and-a-half-old husky-shepherd mix came in to Homeward Animal Shelter by way of the pound, and in to the KVRR Morning Show studios via Homeward’s Heather Klefstad. And she was more fun than a barrel of monkeys the whole morning….
