Animal Answers: Healing Hearts and Paws Fund

Animal Allies Development Officer Michelle Sternberg Discusses the Healing Hearts and Paws Fund, Upcoming Puppy Classes and the Bike Swap

DULUTH, Minn. – The Healing Hearts and Paws Fund at Animal Allies Humane Society helps cover the cost of medical procedures for many animals every year.

Many of the animals that arrive at Animal Allies require extensive medical treatment. From conditions such as diabetes to thyroid disease, broken bones to genetic deformities, these cats and dogs enter the shelter desperately needing assistance.

Many fundraisers throughout the year help to put money in the fund, however the community’s support is greatly appreciated.

Development Officer Michelle Sternberg brought in Nola, a furry feline friend who’s not yet available for adoption.

She came to the shelter with a broken back right leg, and has since healed thanks to the generosity of the Healing Hearts and Paws Fund.

Nola will be available for adoption in the future once she gets stronger.


Puppy Preschool Classes are also starting at the shelter on Monday, April 9.

The classes are designed to help socialize and train puppies with new people, sights, sounds, and of course, other pups!

Puppy Age Requirements (at the start of class): 12 weeks – 6 months old.
