The Animal Allies Pet Of The Week is a "Barn" cat named Kai. He is a young cat only 6 months old and he is an orange tabby. Although most of the cats that end up at the shelter are indoor pets every once in a while they do get some cats that are not too fond of people and like the isolation of being outside with a warm place to retreat. Kai is not to picky he does need an actual barn a warm shed would work too and if you have other animals like chickens or cows or goats he would get along just fine with other animals.

Kai has been neutered, microchipped vet checked and is updated on all his shots. His adoption fee is only $25 so If you or someone you know would have a place for him please think about adopting him.

If you are interested in giving Kai a new chance at living a happy life please contact the adoption team at 218-722-5341 for more information! The adoption team is available via phone Tuesday-Saturday from 10:30am-6:00pm, and Sunday from 10:30am-4:00pm. Animal Allies is located at 4006 Airport Road in Duluth and website is www.animalallies.net.

COVID-19 Precautions:

Visiting Hours: For the time being, general community visits to the shelter will not be allowed. This includes individuals and families wishing to visit with the animals and browse the shelter, tours, humane education activities and volunteer groups. Our front door will remain locked to the public and potential adopters can visit with our Adoption Team via the front door intercom system. Casual visitors will not be allowed on site during this time for the safety of all.

Adoptions: Adoptions are encouraged and our team is happy to facilitate a private meeting with your potential new pet. This is a great time to spend one-on-one time with a new pet to help them acclimate to your new-to-them home. We offer all of the supplies you may need to purchase here in our retail store, so no additional shopping trip will be required to prepare your home for your new furry friend. Individuals and families looking to meet with a specific animal are encouraged to visit the shelter to have a personalized introduction with the animal. Serious adopters will be allowed to visit the dog or cat area(s) privately. No groups over 4 (four) people will be allowed to visit with an animal at one time - including at the time of the adoption.

Please contact our Adoption Team during our regular business hours to ask questions, learn about the pet of your interest, or set up a time to meet and adopt. Please note that we anticipate a high call volume. Your patience is appreciated as our team provides customer service while navigating these changes.

Surrender and Care of Stray Pets: This work will continue as usual as we will remain fully staffed to provide care for the animals in our facility. Specific questions regarding surrendering a pet can be made to our Intake Specialist. Surrenders must be scheduled ahead of time - absolutely no drop in surrenders will be accommodated. We will continue to provide care for stray pets found in our service area of Duluth, Hermantown, Proctor and southern St. Louis County.

Care for the Animals: Staff and key volunteers will remain on site, rotating shifts as usual to provide care for the animals. Our Adoption, Kennel, and Medical Teams will remain fully staffed throughout this time.

Volunteers and Humane Education: All group gatherings will be suspended at the Adoption Center until further notice. We are suspending all activity for enrichment volunteers until further notice as well. Cat/Dog Buddy volunteer duties will continue as long as these volunteers feel comfortable doing so. Foster training will continue with individual volunteers.

Donations and Assistance: Our staff will do our best to accommodate donors and those looking to help during this time, but we ask that donations of goods - specifically toys, treats, food, dog and cat beds, kennels etc. be saved off-site by donors until our facility is once again open to the public. Monetary donations are greatly appreciated at this time, as our work to help the animals continues even though these precautions are in place. Financial donations may be made through our website or sent to the Adoption Center via the USPS.
