Pets of the Week for April 29, 2014

Frisky the dog1 / 2
Windsor the dog2 / 2

FRISKY is a 10-year-old female rat terrier/Chihuahua mix available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. She came to the shelter from a previous home and is looking for love and companionship in her forever home. Don’t let her age fool you. She’s friendly and still has plenty of pep in her step.

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) 722-2110 or visit for more information.

WINDSOR is a 4-year-old male mastiff/Labrador retriever mix available for adoption through Contented Critters Shelter in Makinen. His former owners had a baby and were worried about a big dog being around the baby. Windsor is a very happy, affectionate, playful dog who likes all people. He has not been with other dogs or cats in the shelter, as of yet.

Call (218) 638-2153 or visit for more information.
