Pudge is a black brindle and white American Staffordshire Terrier who is 2 1/2 years old. He came to us as a stray from St. Louis County and is now looking for his new loving home! Pudge is a beefy boy who loves to play more than anything. If you are looking for the perfect playmate look no further! Pudge is available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth.

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 animalallies.net for more information.


As we start the new year of 2020, are you looking for a little harmony in your life? If you are, then I’m the cat for you as you guessed it, my name is Harmony. I’m a beautiful female van cat - all white with gray on my head and ears and a striped gray tail. Like my name, I’m a well-balanced cat who is happy, friendly, confident, playful, and affectionate. I’ve been searching for a loving family and would be so happy if I could be part of yours! And if you also want to make the world a better place for everyone, my sister Justice could help you do that as she is looking for a home too and we would love to be adopted together! What could be better than Harmony and Justice? Come and meet us and other available cats at Helping PAWS Pet Rescue in Washburn.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. For more information, call Helping PAWS Pet Rescue Inc. at 715-373-2222, email helpingpaws@ncis.net or visit ourhelpingpaws.com/available.html for more information.
