Learn more about these pets looking for permanent homes.

We are part of The Trust Project.

JoJo, a 1-year-old male Terrier mix, is a very friendly and energetic dog who loves to run and play. JoJo had a previous injury in his eye that resulted in having it removed, but this does not slow him down. He is all healed up and ready to find a wonderful home. JoJo is up to date with vaccinations, has been neutered, dewormed, microchipped, and vet checked. His adoption fee is $175.00 + tax. Visit him at the Humane Society of Douglas County in Superior or call 715-398-6784 or go to .


Bleppy, a 3-year-old feline, is a sweet but shy guy looking for a home that will give him plenty of space and time to come out of his shell. A calm, laid back house would be the best fit for Bleppy. If you are interested in adopting Bleppy, visit Animal Allies at 4006 Airport Road or call the adoption team at 218-722-5341 for more information.

Growing up, the household of Tammy Swift's bestie seemed like nirvana. It was a spotless rambler — the height of 1970s’ cool, in her book — with a mom who dressed fashionably and kept their freezer stocked at all times with at least five different homemade cookies. But as time passed, she learned all moms contribute in their own way.
