Boots is a 2-year-old grey tabby available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. She came to the shelter pregnant and now that her kittens are weaned, she’s looking for her forever home. Her foster mom said that she gets along with other animals and likes to be petted while sitting next to you but isn't super excited about being held for too long.

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.
