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.
