Topic: Animal Protection

Hot diggity dog! That is likely the sentiment of the many pets and families who found one another because of a weekly adoption segment aired on WJON-AM in St. Cloud, Minn. Each Friday, midday host Kelli Gorr spoke on the air with the executive director of the Tri-County Humane Society about a pet currently waiting for a home. The shelter is close to Gorrís heart, as well as the heart of Foo, Gorrís pet who was once a humane society resident. During the segment, volunteer opportunities and upcoming fundraisers were highlighted as well. Providing pet lovers with more programming, the station currently airs "The Pet Show," a call-in segment featuring veterinarians from a local clinic, where listeners can ask questions about their petís health.
