Stop into Petco in Duluth from 11-2 this Saturday, and you just might wind up walking out with a new family member. Ruff Start Rescue will be there hosting an adoption event. They're a non-profit organization based out of central Minnesota. They are a rescue, not a shelter, so they rely on volunteers to take in the animals and house them in foster homes.

Last year they saved over 1600 animals, but wound up spending $207,000. You can make a donation right on their site. Not only do they have dogs, cats, puppies, & kittens, but they also have guinea pigs, hamsters and, rabbits as well. At this time of year, a pet just might be the best gift you can get for yourself. Studies have shown that pets provide a wide variety of physical, emotional and social well being for their humans.
