3 Adult cats need to be adopted or fostered, PLEASE HELP

Prrrrrlease,  help us get out of kittie jail. We have been in the pound since May and would love to get adopted to our forever homes. Not together, unless you would like to that would be ok too. But we can be adopted out separately and all three of us would make sweet loving additions to your home.

IZZY -  is very friendly, affectionate and loves to lay on your lap. My fur is soft and I love to be talked to and will talk back too.

BLACKIE – I was found 5 miles East of Grand Marais on Highway 61. I am about 3 years old, is very friendly, playful and chatty. She loves to show off on her cat tree. She tossed and turned for her poses for pictures. Silly girl.

BOOTS - Sadly his previous owners moved away and could not take him with. He is 5 years old, an orange tabby cat and very friendly. He loves to hide in his play tower, but did meow and say hello when I took the picture.

He is mellow and friendly, he would be perfect for someone older and wanting a companion.

If you are interested in adopting Izzy, Blackie or Boots, please call Gay for more information. 218-387-1781. She works Sunday's and Mondays during the day, so please leave a message.

All animals from Arrowhead Animal Rescue, can go to their potential new homes on a trial bases. We want to make sure that each animal and their potential new homes work out.

All adoptions are no fee adoptions, although donations are welcome to care for the next animal coming in.

Gitchi-Gami Trail Association bike ride this weekend

Thu, 08/18/2016 - 12:04pm

The 16th Annual Gitchi-Gami Trail Association (GGTA) North Shore Bike Ride will take place on Saturday, Aug. 20, with 28-mile, 37-mile, and 55-mile route options.

The recreational ride will once again begin and end in Gooseberry Falls State Park on scenic Hwy. 61. As an added attraction to this year’s ride, Beaver Bay, the "hub" of all three rides, is celebrating its first annual “Rhythm & Roots Festival” that weekend. GGTA riders can enjoy music, history presentations, street sales, food, and fun events planned for the celebration.

 All three routes begin on the longest continuous section of the GGST – 14 miles from Gooseberry through historic Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, to the rest stop at the new Beaver Bay trailhead. The 28-mile route is entirely on the GGST, from Gooseberry to Beaver Bay and back again. Because it is an “out-and-back” ride, bikers can turn around at any point to return to the starting point.

 The 37-mile option adds a loop on county roads north from Beaver Bay and into Silver Bay, returning on the trail between Silver Bay and the West Road in Beaver Bay. This route incorporates over a half-mile on gravel road (the West Road).

 The 55-mile option follows the GGST to Beaver Bay and adds a challenging loop north and east on county roads and state highways, returning through Silver Bay to Beaver Bay. Both of the longer loops return to Gooseberry on the GGST.

 The “Rhythm & Roots Festival” commemorates the 160th anniversary of the founding of the city of Beaver Bay – the oldest permanent settlement on the North Shore. “The GGTA is pleased to join in this celebration on the day of the annual ride, in recognition of the role Beaver Bay has played in the short history of the GGST,” said Bill Blank, president of the GGTA.
