Pets of the Week: Vera and Babette

Learn more about these pets looking for permanent homes.

My name is Vera and I'm an 8-month-old pup looking for a loving home. I'm a sweet and outgoing gal who loves to run and play. I'm still pretty young, so I'll need a home that will help me continue to learn my basic commands and manners. (Not to brag, but I do already know sit and shake a paw!) When playtime is over, I'm all about the cuddles. I also get along with other dogs, so I wouldn't be opposed to home with a dog friend.

If you are interested in adopting me, please visit Animal Allies at 4006 Airport Road, Duluth, or you can call the Adoption Team at 218-722-5341 .

Meet Babette. She sadly was left behind in an apartment when her family moved. What a heartbreaking thing for a cat to be abandoned! Babette is a super-friendly, loving cat. She gets along well with other cats in foster care and loves to have fun. Babette is a young, short-haired, gray tabby. She is spayed, has her shots, tested negative for feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia virus, and is microchipped.

If you are interested in adopting Babette, please email Our pets can be found at Note: We are now accepting donations for our annual spring garage sale fundraiser on Saturdays in May. Please contact us for more information.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
