Pullman police warn locals of phone scammers posing as high school representatives

A phone scam in the Pullman area is targeting businesses and individuals.

Pullman Police say several commercial businesses in the Pullman area have received phone calls requesting money in exchange for advertising space on a Pullman High School sports calendar. Callers have identified themselves as representatives of Pullman High School and/or Sports Media. However police say this is not a legitimate fundraiser.

While an official fundraiser for PHS football uniforms is scheduled to occur soon, police have confirmed that solicitors will not ask for monetary exchange over the phone.

Pullman PD warns citizens to be cautious anytime a caller asks you for money, and to never provide personal or financial information over the phone.

WSU veterinarians seek puppy volunteers in exchange for ice cream

Washington State University's Veterinary Teaching Hospital have come up with the perfect study for those who love puppies and ice cream.

Cardiologists in the program need up to 100 puppy volunteers for a 24 hour cardiac study. Thanks will be given to the puppies' owners in the form of Ferdinand's Ice Cream.

“The goal of the project 'Puppies and Cream' is to determine the normal cardiac values for puppies between the ages of 3 to 11 months when they wear a non-invasive Holter-type cardiac monitor for 24 hours,” said Pamela Lee, a WSU veterinary cardiologist. “There is currently no standard data for normal healthy puppies that age even though the Holter monitor is commonly used as a diagnostic tool for adult dogs.”

A Holter monitor is a battery-operated device that can measure and record the heart's electrical activity (ECG) continuously for 24 hours or more. It has wires with small conductive pads that attach to the skin.

Puppy volunteers will receive a complete physical examination free of charge, and will need to have five spots shaved to allow the monitor's conductive pads make good contact.
