Milosh and Elsa
We are part of The Trust Project.

Milosh is a 12-pound, white and tan domestic longhair cat who is 10 years old. She found herself at Animal Allies after her previous home could no longer care for her. Milosh is a very social gal who will seek you out for lots of head scratches and would love a great spot to lounge in the sun. Animal Allies, Duluth, 218-722-5341, .

Elsa is an 11-month-old female pitbull terrier. She had a rough start in life and was found on a country road during one of the coldest nights of the year in February. Elsa burrowed herself into a snowbank in an attempt to stay warm. Elsa’s tail was frostbit, and she had to have half of it amputated. Elsa has been at the shelter for six weeks during her recovery, and is now ready to find her forever home. Elsa is energetic and playful and needs an owner who has lots of time to work with her. She needs a home without other animals and no children younger than 16. Humane Society of Douglas County, Superior, 715-398-6784, .
