"Sometimes, when it comes to animal cruelty, people don't want to know"

PETA. Used with permission

With Duluth's Animal Allies Humane Society one of the shelters leading the nation when it comes to finding homes for dogs and cats, it's easy to forget that's not the case everywhere in this country.

Former Animal Allies volunteer and 2000 East High School graduate Emily Allen is the Senior Director of PETA's Community Animal Project.

She joins us this morning to talk about how to change cultures when it comes to animal welfare, the new documentary focusing on the work she and her team to in the field, and the role of her organization in pushing that envelope.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
