The Cat Walk

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

There are MANY pet owners in the Duluth area and it’s not impossible to own a pet when you are renting a place of campus (the only animals you can have on campus are fish, but if you need a service animal the Center for Disability can help you make accommodations!)


Animal Allies Internship

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

As I was searching for summer jobs, a Spring internship sort of fell into my lap. I just completed my third week as a Marketing and Special Events Intern at Animal Allies Humane Society. Right now I am working on creating and promoting material for the Walk for Animals 25th Anniversary. This fundraiser is a big part of keeping the pets at Animal Allies healthy and happy until they find their new forever homes. The projects I am working on are pivotal to the success of the event. For example, I advertise the event on different websites, social media, and to local organizations. With the guidance of my internship advisors, I created Fundraiser Kits for the participants and some fun email content to keep them motivated to meet their fundraising goals. I love the work I do and I love how many puppies and kitties are around! It’s hard not to take one home. If you’re interested in the Walk for Animals on June 3rd, sign up at!

Dog in the Apartment

I made a bold decision bringing my family’s dog up to Duluth following Thanksgiving break. I thought it would be a good idea to bring Kirby up to spend 4 weeks in the arctic tundra of Duluth. So far so good.


Pets at College

Monday, February 15th, 2016

If you’ve grown up with pets in your life, sometimes it’s hard to transition to college and being on your own.  Some people are very dependent on animals (and vice versa).  While living in the dorms, you are allowed to have fish for sure, but I am not sure about being able to have hamsters or anything like that.  I have a couple friends that have fish for pets, but I think even they are too much work for the time I have available.  BUT, you’ll find out shortly after living in the dorms that the Somer’s Residential Life Advisor owns a dog and you’ll see him running around the halls or fetching balls outside sometimes.  He’s very friendly and used to being around people.  Also, our school offers pet therapy about once a month where they bring in a couple of therapeutic dogs for the students to pet and hang out with.  Either way, if you ever need a little pet loving, there are some options for you around here!!
