Pets of the week for Aug. 6, 2019

Animals available for adoption


Colleen is a 2-year-old brindle mixed breed who is available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. Colleen takes a little while to warm up to new people, but she bonds quickly to her "person." She has some skin allergies that will require a special diet, but it doesn't seem to have a negative impact on her spirit. She’s a goofy, smiley, girl with a head tilt that will charm even the toughest critics.

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.


Ash is a 4-year-old male cat available for adoption through the Humane Society of Douglas County. This sweet boy can be a little shy at first, but when he warms up, he’s very friendly and seeks out your attention. Ash is a polydactyl, which means he has extra toes.


An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. Call 715-398-6784 or go to for more information.
