Submitting a PSA?
Non profit events and fundraiser can be submitted by email to email@example.com. We will not air events for free that are paying for advertising on any other media outlet (newspaper, radio, television, etc.) PSA's are posted on this page, and given random live mentions on one or more of our 5 Albany radio stations. We cannot guarantee when or if your event will be mentioned, as it is subject to time availability and on-air host discretion. PSA's should be submitted no less than 2 weeks prior to an event. Please do not send only a flier or simply a link to a page where we can "find" the information for your event. Submit a short paragraph describing the Who, What, When, Why, How much, and most importantly, what the profits will benefit.
KRKT/SafeHaven Humane Society Pet of the week...Bella
She’s not only beautiful, she’s smart too! Bella is a 7-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is ready to go home today. This amazing girl is well behaved and loves sturdy chew toys, back rubs and attention. Due to a recent knee injury, Bella would do best in a mellow home with older kids.
Bella’s adoption fee is half off during the month of November as part of our Adopt-A-Mature-Pet promotion.
Come visit Bella and all of the adoptable animals at SafeHaven Humane Society. They are located just west of I-5 on Highway 34 in Albany or visit them online at safehavenhumane.org. Shelter hours are Saturday through Monday from noon to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday noon to 6 p.m. They can be reached by calling 541.928.2789.

Kids for Doernbecher---letter written to KRKT by Madysen
My name is Madysen Williams. I am 7 years old. My brothers Rylen (5), Kayden (2), and I are raising money for Doernbecher Children's Hospital. We are authorized fundraisers through Doernbecher. We have named our fundraising group "Kids for Doernbecher". We began raising money the end of June 2013 and are at just over $1000 so far. We are selling holiday cards made by the patients at Doernbecher for $5 per box and each box has 12 cards and 13 envelopes. We are also having a "donation day" at Bugerville in Albany on Tuesday November 12,2013 from 5-8pm. Bugerville will be donating 10% of the proceeds made during that time to Kids for Doernbecher.
