Puppies Sound Good: Meet Calloway

Today we met Calloway, this month's featured adoptable puppy at the Humane Society of Calloway County. 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's seven weeks old and is one of a litter of six. She'll be a medium to large size dog when she's fully grown. See more information about her on Petfinder.com (where she's listed as a boy!).

Get a haircut, help an animal

What if you could get a haircut for twenty dollars – every penny of which goes to the Humane Society of Calloway County.  And what if that haircut was from master hairstylist, and animal lover, Patrick Lomantini of Wichita, Kansas.  Well, you can.  Lomantini’s in his second year of doing 50 haircuts in 50 states in 50 days and he’s made Murray his Kentucky stop.  Humane Society Executive Director Kathy Hodge tells Kate Lochte all about it.
