Today's Furry Friend is Benson, is a young Great Dane and boxer mix from North Carolina. He was saved by Ellen Harter, of Animal Rescue, Inc. , who drove down to North Carolina and back in one day to rescue him from a high kill shelter.

Jen Althouse will be representing Animal Rescue, Inc. and  is the coordinator of a trap, neuter, and release program for cats called Olivia's Outreach. The program is named after Olivia Perryman, who was a former volunteer for the shelter and really loved animals. Althouse explains how the program can really benefit the community and how the public can get involved.
