Mar. 20—Chance is a 64-pound American Staffordshire Terrier who is about 3 years old. He found himself at Animal Allies after his previous home could no longer care for him. Chance is a little shy when you first meet him but once he gets to know you, he will become your best friend! Since being at Animal Allies, he has been more confident with another dog to hang out with, so he would prefer to go to a home with another calm canine friend. He's a sweet guy.

Pikku is a sweet, black-and-white, short-haired tuxedo cat who was surrendered by her owner. She has beautiful, large green eyes and is about 2 years old. Pikku is looking for a quiet home with adults or older children. She is a clean cat. Sadly, she was bullied by other cats in her previous home, so she has been fostered in a quiet foster home and will need a quiet, stress-free new home. Pikku has stomatitis (an inflammation of the mouth), which is easily treated with an inexpensive medicine. Warm Fuzzies Animal Rescue Inc.,, 218-576-8534,
