Over the weekend, “Hogs for Dogs” took place to benefit C.A.R.E. animal rescue.  This is the 4th year for the event and just one of many fundraisers taking place throughout the year. No-kill shelters like this one, rely solely on these fundraisers and other donations, in order to provide care to the numerous animals they save. KSMU’s Theresa Bettmann went down to the shelter’s adoption center to learn more. 

For many people, pets are considered to be family members and their loss can be devastating.  Pet owners often find comfort by memorializing their pet in different ways.  Across the country some cemeteries have recognized this need and offer pet burial services.  Recently, a cemetery in Nixa recognized this trend and became the first to offer pet services in that city.  KSMU’s Theresa Bettmann has this report.

An important part of Civil War history, Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield, was the location of the first major battle west of the Mississippi River and was where General Nathaniel Lyon was killed.  While the Civil War is one of the most researched conflicts in U.S history, the Trans-Mississippi Theater which includes Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas has not been documented as thoroughly, until now.  KSMU’s Matthew Barnes reports.
