Animal Allies: Gwen

Created: 10/17/2013 8:42 AM WDIO.com

Gwen is a friendly tortoise-shell calico cat. Jennie said that she is 15 years old. "We think that she is mostly blind," Jennie tells us, but also says that she can at least see shapes and colors.

"She's really sweet (and) laid back," and very calm, as Ben noticed. She has a pretty loud meow, but tends to lay and sleep most of the day.

Gwen is at the Duluth shelter, and she has no adoption fee. "All cats over (the age of) 10 have no adoption fee," Jennie tells us.

The "Fur Ball" is on October 19th. The raffle tickets are $5 each and you can pick them up at their Duluth or Superior location. There is a silent auction, and it all takes place at the Northland Country Club. All proceeds go towards taking care of the Animal Allies animals. Prizes include a $1,000 gift certificate to Gun Flint Lodge.

Once again, you can adopt Gwen at Animal Allies in Duluth. You can check their website for more information or their Facebook too.
