Pet of the Week for Aug. 19

CAPTAIN is a 5-year-old male domestic long-hair orange tabby available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth, 4006 Airport Road. He was found

as a stray and didn’t do a very good job of taking care of himself while living on the streets. He’s a one-eyed pirate but is very sweet and would love to have a real home. He needs someone who would love to brush and pet him.

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.
