The pup Animal Allies brought to Good Morning Northland Thursday really lived up to her name. McNugget was a little bit of a chicken.
Anna Sjodin from the shelter said McNugget is just 3-months old, which is why she was a little shy. She is also likely a purebred Chihuahua. She came to Animal Allies as a stray. But she did get along well with kids, cats and everyone, Sjodin said.
Animal Allies also held its Adopt-a-thon last weekend. Even though one day was canceled, the shelter did do 28 adoptions on Saturday. Sjodin said despite the weather, hundreds of people stopped by the Duluth location.
Next week, Animal Allies will be celebrating Earth Day. The shelter will be promoting its barn cat program as a sustainable solution to a pest problem, Sjodin said.
