A number of Northland businesses and organizations are getting together this weekend (October 21 and 22) for an annual event dedicated to finding adoptable pets new homes as well as celebrating pet owners across the region.

The annual "Love A Pet" event at Miller Hill Subaru brings together a number of Northland animal shelters to highlight adoptable pets in the region and give them a platform for potential pet parents to find a new fury friend.

Animal Allies Humane Society, Lake County Humane Society, Chequamegon Humane Association, The Babinski Foundation, and Carlton County Animal Rescue join the ASPCA with Miller Hill Subaru for this annual weekend event that goes beyond just pet adoption.

Saturday is being called "Caturday", dedicated to cat and kitten adoptions and Sunday is being called "Pup Day", featuring adoptable dogs and puppies. This event gives people that are looking to adopt the chance to get discounted adoption fees, as well!

Everyday items that our pets love more than their expensive toys

We spend a fortune on brand new toys for our pets. Chances are that they will completely destroy those at some point. But before that destruction happens, there are some normal, everyday items that we have in our homes that our pets would rather play with. The best thing...these "toys" are usually way less expensive.
