KITA is a 4-year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. Kita is looking for someone to love. She's a great walker who likes to spend time outside. She loves attention, cuddling, chewing on Nylabones and even likes being read to. Kita is super smart and ready to learn new tricks.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Animal Allies uses the "Meet your Match" adoption program designed by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The program evaluates an animal's behavior and interests and matches them to an adopter's preferences so you take home a pet you really click with. Call (218) 722-5341 or visit for more information.

MERLIN THE WIZARD is a friendly older feline available for adoption through Warm Fuzzies Animal Rescue Inc. He's all white with a cute little snout and funny little ink spot on the tip of his nose. Merlin loves people. He "talks" to everyone at adoption events and loves to be held and snuggle on your lap. He also responds to his name. A quiet home is best for Merlin where he can relax and feel loved.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions, and we offer a return policy on all our pets. If you would like more information about Merlin the Wizard, call (218) 576-8534; email; or visit
