Calloway is a retriever/husky mix who needs a loving home. She was very sweet and sleepy at WKMS, and a little shy making her radio debut. She&#39;s seven weeks old and is one of a litter of six. She&#39;ll be a medium to large size dog when she&#39;s fully grown. <a href="http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/27482767/">See more information about her on Petfinder.com</a> (where she&#39;s listed as a boy!).</p><p><a href="http://forthepets.org/">See more at the Humane Society of Calloway County website</a>.</p><p> Wed, 09 Oct 2013 20:50:59 +0000 Matt Markgraf & Tracy Ross 35579 at http://wkms.org Puppies Sound Good: Meet Calloway Hopkins County Animal Shelter Reduces Euthanasia Rate 40% http://wkms.org/post/hopkins-county-animal-shelter-reduces-euthanasia-rate-40 <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The Hopkins County Animal Shelter has reduced its euthanasia rate more than forty percent in the last four years. The shelter had faced scrutiny for rates exceeding 65%. The euthanasia rate now stands at 23%. Last week, the shelter board discussed plans to implement programs to keep healthy or treatable animal deaths to a minimum of 10%. Shelter Director Charles Gentry said the humane society's recent success stems from working with the community.</span></p><p> Tue, 21 May 2013 17:28:21 +0000 Rob Canning 31716 at http://wkms.org Hopkins County Animal Shelter Reduces Euthanasia Rate 40% Man's Estate Donates To Every KY Animal Shelter http://wkms.org/post/mans-estate-donates-every-ky-animal-shelter <p></p><p>A Muhlenberg County farmer who never turned away a stray cat has left a portion of his estate to every county-run animal shelter in the state. County officials around the Commonwealth received checks earlier this month from a man they never met.
