Pets of the week for Feb. 13, 2018

DAPHNE is a 1-year-old muted tortoiseshell domestic medium hair kitty who is available for adoption through Animal Allies in Duluth. She’s a sweet young kitty looking for an understanding owner. Daphne is somewhat under socialized and feels most comfortable hiding. With some love and patience this beautiful girl will settle into her new loving home and thank you with adoring purrs.

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.

POTATO CHIP and JIMMY are available for adoption through Helping PAWS Pet Rescue Inc. in Washburn. Potato Chip and Jimmy bonded while being together at the shelter. They are soulmates and want to remain together. Jimmy (not pictured) is a big sleek black kitty with lush short hair. If you’re looking for the perfect pair of bonded kitties, then you need to meet Potato Chip and Jimmy.

An adoption fee is required for all adoptions. For more information, call Helping PAWS Pet Rescue Inc. at (715) 373-2222, email or visit for more information.
