Are you looking for a companion animal?
Animal Allies Humane Society is bringing cats and dogs from the Superior shelter to Wal-Mart on Tower Avenue for a special adoption event 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
“Weather permitting, we’ll close the Animal Allies Superior facility on May 18 and bring our adoptable pets to Wal-Mart to meet shoppers and introduce the community to pet adoption,” said Betsy Bode, Superior shelter manager. “As an added incentive this event will feature greatly reduced adoption fees. Our goal is to find loving homes for all of the cats and dogs available at the Superior shelter.”
Adoption fees for the one-day event include a $50 discount on regular fees for dogs and puppies; $75 for kittens; and no fee for cats.
“Animal Allies made a commitment to zero euthanasia of healthy and treatable cats and dogs in 2010,” said Rick Sailstad, Animal Allies executive director. “It’s a significant challenge to achieve this each year, but through the support of the Twin Ports community, we can proudly state that we do not euthanize healthy and treatable cats and dogs. We hope that this event will leave us with full hearts and empty kennels — ready to help even more cats and dogs in need.”
Animal Allies and the former Animal Rescue Federation of Superior merged in 2012. Animal Allies is contracted by the city of Superior to manage the city’s animal shelter on Hill Avenue.
The city of Superior, Douglas County, Humane Society of Douglas County and Animal Allies are working together to build and operate a new animal shelter featuring many of the successful programs and services offered by Animal Allies Humane Society.
Animal Allies Humane Society is a local non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization based in Duluth that strives to ensure a lifetime of loving care.
