Gina is a grey and white 5-year-old American staffordshire terrier who is available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. This sweet girl can take a little time to warm up to new people, but once she does, she’s very friendly and loves going for walks. This sweetheart will make a wonderful pal for someone who likes to explore during the day and snuggle at night. Because she loves her undivided attention so much, she would like to be the only dog in the home.

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.

Bear is a male 4-year-old shepherd collie mix available for adoption from Contented Critters Shelter in Makinen. Bear is good with people and children but unsure about how he is around other animals. He’s very playful and will need an active family or person to wear that energy out.

If you would like more information or would like to meet Bear, contact Contented Critters Shelter in Makinen by calling (218) 638-2153, visit or or email
