Pet Connection

Pet Connection: Meet Bella

Bella is aptly named. And she's just as brainy as she is beautiful.

And we’re not saying she’s smart just because she laughs at Emily’s jokes, right on cue. Bella and her rescue worker, CAARE avian rescue worker Casey Backlund, stopped by the KVRR morning show for a live in-studio interview about what it takes to successfully adopt an umbrella cockatoo, which is what Bella is. Bella is only 15 years, which is…

Pet Connection: Meet Sugar and Shasta

They go together like peas and carrots.

Sugar and Shasta are a bonded pair who stopped by KVRR with Homeward Animal Shelter worker Heather Klefstad for a live in-studio interview with Emily Welker about looking for a forever home for this sugar-and-spice pair of pooches. Shasta is a Papillon-Dachsund cross and Sugar is a terrier. The ladies are three and a half years old were surrendered to…

Pet Connection: Meet Mckenna

A chocolate lab cross with a disposition as sweet as candy.

Mckenna came to the 4 Luv of Dog rescue to swing by for a live in-studio visit with Emily, along with rescue founder and volunteer Kish Hilmert. Mckenna is about 2 yrs old, a spayed female Labrador retriever mix. It’s hard to say what else the mix might consist of,  Kish said, not least of which because genetic tests often…

Pet Connection: Meet Linus

Adam feels a strange kinship with this dog. He's not sure why.

Linus is a lot like Adam — a giant guy with delightful good manners who just wants to be loved. Laid-back and affectionate, the 4-year-old Harlequin Great Dane is neutered and crate-trained, but as friendly and people-loving as he is, small dogs are not his thing. Check out his live in-studio appearance with 4 Luv of Dog founder Kish Hilmert…

Pet Connection: Meet Mavis

She's a heeler and an appealer.

Mavis is only about a year old and she’s only been in foster care about a week since being sprung from the slammer — er, pound. But this smart, sweet and savvy heeler pup can already sit and take treats nicely, and gets along well with cats and kids. She can even herd your toddler for you! Categories: Morning –…

Pet Connection: Meet Hank

He's a wild and crazy guy. (And a lot of fun too.)

KVRR got a visit live (boy, was it live!) in studio on the morning show from Diamond in the Ruff Pet Rescuer Ryan Keel and Hank. Hank’s from the pound, so it’s not clear exactly how old he is. What is clear is that he has the energy and enthusiasm of a puppy, the glossy black coat of a labrador…

Pet Connection: Meet Lancelot

Lancelot and his friend, pet rescue worker Heather Klefstad, visited live in-studio with Emily to talk about adopting a senior cat like this loving Lothario. Find out about keeping your cats safe indoors from the freezing cold, what to watch out when it comes to cats hiding in cars outside to stay warm, and most importantly, whether or not Lancelot…

Pet Connection: Meet Felix

Could you be the Oscar to this Felix? Meet the adoptable Nanday conure and find out!

  Felix is an adoptable Nanday conure, a small type of parrot, who’s available for adoption from CAARE, the Center for Avian Adoption, Rescue and Education right here in West Fargo. The beautiful little fellow has a lifespan of about 35 years in captivity and like all parrots needs lots of attention and environmental stimulation to live his best life…
