Feb. 20—Precious is a white American Staffordshire Terrier mix who is about 2 years old. She found herself at Animal Allies after she was transferred from a different shelter. Precious weighs 48 pounds and is a happy, playful and silly girl. She has a lot of personality and needs a home where people will play with her all day and then cuddle at night. Precious has some medical concerns, including being deaf. Her new home should be patient. Animal Allies, Duluth, 218-722-5341,

Bluebell is a feral cat at Warm Fuzzies Animal Rescue. She was found trying to survive with five babies out in the cold. She was taken into foster care and is safe now. She was a very good mother and raised her babies along with another orphan. Bluebell is never mean, but she avoids people or other pets. She is a quiet cat, a pretty blue color, looks much like a British Shorthair. She is clean and uses the litterbox. Bluebell is looking for a shop or safe barn home.
