FORT MYERS, Fla.-- It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for our "Pet Connection" segment. Doctor Whitney Whitford from the Animal Medical Center of Lehigh Acres joined WINK news meteorologist Joey Sovine on set Tuesday. WINK News introduces you to "Buckwheat." Buckwheat came to the Lehigh Acres medical center after he was shot.  He is finally out of surgery and is in need of a good home! If you're interested in adopting Buckwheat today, contact the Gulf Coast Humane Society at 239-332-0364.
