Morning – Pet Connection

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Spruce

Spruce up your karma by adopting a kitten who could use a little love.

At less than six months old, Spruce the kitten is already quite a survivor. Dumped on the street to fend for himself and his two brothers at just 8 weeks old, the litter of kittens came in to Diamond in the Ruff pet rescue in rough shape. While they were struggling to survive, they’d been exposed to a series of…

PET CONNECTION: Meet Bella

Bella Has Her Adoption Fee Waived!

  Folks, Bella deserves a home. She’s been waiting for a place to call her own for more than two years. In fact, they keep count of how many days she’s been without a forever home. Homeward Animal Shelter is giving you plenty of incentives to take Bella home. A donor has sponsored her adoption fee IN FULL. She’s free…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Kent

There's no such thing as a stranger to this cuddly cutie.

If you’re looking to make more friends in the new year, you can’t go wrong with a companion like Kent to make introductions for you. The pit bull cross came in to the KVRR studios for his Pet Connection with an enthusiastic greeting for everyone he met. Kent, like a lot of pit bulls, never met a person he didn’t…

Pet Connection: Meet Hamar

Hamar Is A Lively Congo African Grey Parrot

  Hamar looks regal, like you’d see him in an old black-and-white photo in front of a mansion. But his personality sure is colorful. He’s a 12-year-old Congo African Grey parrot. Hamar loves to play with toys and hang upside down in his cage. He also loves almonds, maybe too much. He does need to lose a little weight, but…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Cheddar

If it's not too cheesy, we'd like to say he's a very "gouda" boy.

Say cheese!!! When Cheddar the pit bull terrier showed up at the KVRR Morning Show and we waved him on in to the studio, he knew right what to do. That’s even though he couldn’t hear us calling his name. Because, being a deaf dog, Cheddar is used to recognizing hand gestures instead of verbal communication. He’s a quick study…

Pet Connection: Meet the Monitors

These cute little babies are going to need a lot of extra room someday.

Ah, babies. What’s not to love? They’re tiny, they’re cuddly, and they look to you for all the affection, education and life lessons they need to grow up big and strong someday. That’s true just as much for this pair of infant monitor lizards who are looking for their forever home. This tiny pair came into Kritter Krazy exotic pet…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Petunia

A sweet little flower that will make your heart bloom with love.

This Thanksgiving, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for on the Morning Show. One of the biggest reasons is that we’re introducing you to a brand new local pet rescue organization for our Pet Connection Thursdays. Petunia, a guinea pig, is the first pet we’re sharing from Kritter Krazy Animal Assistance Exotic and Reptile Rescue. She came in with…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Clown

He's guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

We don’t think he’s been to clown school. When it comes to charming an audience, Clown the orange tabby is a purely self-taught natural. The one-year-old came in to Homeward Animal Shelter recently with about 126 feline friends (no word on whether or not they were all riding in the same tiny little car) and joined Homeward’s Heather Klefstad for…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Jewls

Make your holidays sparkle.

If you’re looking to make the season shine a little brighter, not to mention get enough exercise to justify all the turkey and stuffing you’ll be eating. you’re going to want to bring Jewls home for the holidays. The nine-month old puppy with energy and love to burn came in to the Diamond in the Ruff rescue looking for love…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Virginia

She's an international star. So why can't this sweet girl find someone to love?

With a face like that, it’s no wonder she wound up an international sensation. Virginia is a beautiful, odd-eyed white and tan pit bull who found superstardom after being featured as one of the “one-der” dogs of the Fargo Brewing Company’s beer can campaign. The collaboration between the local brewer and local rescue 4 Luv of Dog is being shared…
