Rune

Rune is a calico short haired cat who is one and a half years old. She came to us as a stray from Duluth and is now looking for her new loving home! Rune has lovely yellow eyes and soft fur. She has extra toes on her feet that look like thumbs, and will knead them happily when you talk to her. Start petting her, and she'll lean into your hand to make sure she's getting a thorough chin rub.
She will be spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated by the time of adoption.

Zeus is a handsome white and brown tabby short haired cat who is five and a half years old. He came to us from a previous home and is now looking for his new loving home! Zeus is a handsome boy with a sweet disposition. He'll purr and knead with his paws when you pet him, too! He will be neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated by the time of adoption.

With an average shelter stay of less than a month, dogs and cats at Animal Allies Humane Society aren't usually there long enough to get bored.

What do young professionals want in a city?

Studies suggest they want good transportation - and will even consider giving up their cars if they can rely on public transit.

They want access to amenities so they can have fun when they're not working, and they want to be connected with the community and make it their own.

So far so good, right?  But who would have thought day camps for their dogs are one of the things they're looking for as they contemplate a move to Duluth?

Tens of thousands of animal welfare documents were removed from the USDA's website at the beginning of February, and although some have been reposted, local and national animal welfare advocates continue to press the USDA to restore them.

The USDA maintains the records were removed in an ongoing effort to "balance the need for transparency with rules protecting individual privacy." 

The Animal Welfare Act oversees research labs, zoos, circuses and animal breeders: almost eight thousand facilities.

No one teaches you how to respond to a grieving friend.

People mean well, but sometimes the words hurt more than they help.

After three deaths on campus so far this year shook the campus community, over 200 students crowded into the Kirby Student Center lounge today for a special UMD PAWS event, where they could share whatever they were feeling with over a dozen dogs ... none of whom offered any more comment than a sympathetic slurp or two.

Here's the thing about blue-green algae:  it's really a cyanobacteria.  You can't identify it by sight or smell, but it could make you sick.  Unless you're a dog, in which case, it could kill you.

"Maybe some day you will prove us wrong."

Those words from the managing editor of a local paper,  a dreadlocked best friend's deep-seated desire to road trip with no money, and stories  of  "the  culture of cruelty" in the southern US became a pilgrimage, of sorts, and a documentary called Roots of Rescue four years ago.

Animal Allies Humane Educator Pat Castellano says things have changed a lot - and yet not at all - between the early days of the Band of Mercy in the 1800s and the current crop of summer campers at Animal Allies, shooting videos to help animals get adopted.
