There's a couple of highly adoptable pets at the Friends of Animals Shelter in Cloquet who are high on the priority list of needing a loving home.
Sassy, an eight-month-old spayed female cat, has lived at the shelter for most of her life and is the cat who has been housed there the longest.
Volunteers say she was brought in as a kitten at the age of around eight weeks, and so far, no one has taken the lovable feline home to love.
"She's just the nicest cat," said Shelter worker Christina Johnson. "She's had all her shots and has been Leukemia tested, and she's affectionate and playful. She also gets along well with other cats. I don't understand why no one has given her a home..."
The stunning gray and white female has a dramatic sweep of whiskers and loud purr, and she's happy to be held or played with.
"I hope we can find her a home before too much longer," said Johnson.
Casey, a five-year-old chocolate lab, was just relinquished by his owners last week, but he is also a high priority adoptable pet because he has grown accustomed to being a household pet.
Casey was brought to the shelter last week with a muzzle full of porcupine quills, and his owners said they just couldn't take care of him anymore.
He has had one eye surgically removed, but FOA volunteers say you'd never know it by his positive, upbeat attitude.
"He's good-natured and a beautiful dog," commented Johnson.
Casey has been neutered and is up to date on his shots. He is laid back and good natured, but he is not accustomed to small children. He loves to be walked and likes to play and relate with humans.
For information on giving either of these animals a home, call the FOA Shelter at 879-1655.
