Pet Connection: Five Fine Felines

The Humane Society of the Lakes has a lot of cats who would love a good home

  We’re on a bit of a hot streak on Pet Connection. Each of the last two weeks, our adoptable pet has found a new home within days of us featuring them on the show. We’re putting our luck on the line this week. We don’t have one pet looking for a loving home. We have five! They’re all adult…

Pet Connection: Meet Yukon

Yukon is built for Fargo's winter weather in this week's Pet Connection from Homeward Animal Shelter

  We have a gorgeous young dog who is perfectly at home in a Fargo winter. So much so he dragged Homeward Animal Shelter’s Heather Klefstad outside in sub-zero temperatures just to film his Pet Connection piece. Bundle up and meet the bundle of energy that is Yukon in today’s Pet Connection. He’s a 2-year-old Husky who needs a family…

Pet Connection: Meet Dominic

Homeward Animal Shelter is slashing adoption fees this month because they're overflowing with animals in need

  Dominic is a sweetheart according to Heather Klefstad with Homeward Animal Shelter. She says the two-year-old black and white kitty is shy, and would love some time and space to warm up to someone. But once he does, all he wants is cuddles all day. He would probably need to be the only cat in a home. But he’s…

Pet Connection: Meet Duchess

Duchess joins Pet Connection from the Humane Society of the Lakes

  This week we have a pet who is a little bit extra. She has extra personality. It certainly looks like she has some extra fur compared to some cats. She even has some extra toes!

Pet Connection: Meet Alvin

Alvin is one of four young Shepherd mixes looking for a fresh start where they can blossom into themselves

  Alvin didn’t have the best start to his life. He’s one of four 4 to 5-month-old Shepherd mix puppies surrendered to the Humane Society of the Lakes. They were underfed when they arrived, and they’re a little skittish around people still. But all four are ready for homes! They just need a caring, nurturing home with people ready to…

Pet Connection: Meet Boone

He could be your "Boone" companion.

Boone is a handsome sweetheart with a shy personality that means he’ll need an extra helping hand to come out of his shell. The good-looking guy really needs it, too. He’s been stuck in the shelter now for more than a year and a half. Specifically, Thursday the 16th is his 629th day with Homeward Animal Shelter. No cat wants…

Pet Connection: Meet Billy

Floof and fun all in a pocket-sized package.

That’s in the…
