If you're looking for a horse, consider adopting 'Little Red' - a young lady that's looking for a home...
"She's a yearling, she's loveable" Notes Donna Miller, a volunteer with the Klamath Large Animal Division. "She loves to be around people."
Caretaker Dawn Keen notes that Little Red and her mother were rescued by the shelter last summer...
"Little Red came in here in July. She was very thin, weak."
Keen points out that Little Red has made a lot of progress since then...
"She's doing quite well, full of energy. Spunky - A typical yearling."
"She just needs a lot of love, and some training." Adds Miller.
Little Red won't be adopted to just anyone.
Owners must have references, and her new home will be inspected.
If you're interested in adopting Little Red, or one of her friends, you'll find details and contact information at: wwwlklamathlargeanimals.org - or, you can call: (541) 891-6420.
KOTI-TV NBC2 reporter Lyle Ahrens moved from Nebraska to Klamath Falls in the late 1970's. He instantly fell in love with the mountains, the trees and the rivers, and never once regretted the move.
Lyle's job history is quite colorful. He’s managed a pizza parlor; he’s been a bartender, and a “kiwifruit grader” at an organic orchard in New Zealand. A Klamath Falls radio station hired Lyle in the mid 90's as a news writer and commercial producer. In 2004, Lyle joined the KOTI/KOBI news operation.
Lyle notes with pride that he has a big responsibility presenting the Klamath Basin to a wide and varied audience. "The on-going water crisis has underscored the fact that the people and the issues in the Klamath Basin are every bit as diverse as the terrain. Winning and keeping the trust of the viewers, as well as the newsmakers, is something I strive for with each story".
When he's not busy reporting the news, Lyle enjoys astronomy, playing guitar, fixing old radios and listening to anything by Sheryl Crow.
