”De bedste sportsudøvere er opmærksomme på dem, de træner sammen med.

De hjælper og lader sig inspirere af hinanden i stedet for at tænke sig selv først, for det er nemlig ikke særlig frugtbart, når man træner. Her skal man bruge hinanden, og det kræver indlevelse i hinandens måder at gøre tingene på”

Ole Lund, Postdoc forsker i talent- og ekspertise udvikling.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is a computer chip about the size of a grain of rice that is coded with a very special serial number unique to your pet. This number links to a database of registered owner information. A lost pet with a microchip can be scanned and the microchip number will link to the owner's contact information. This small little chip provides an extra layer of protection and peace of mind for you should your pet ever become lost or separated from you. Animal Allies offers microchipping for owned animals for just $25. Call 218-722-5341 to schedule an appointment.

Does Animal Allies declaw cats before adoption?

No. Animal Allies sometimes takes in cats that have already been declawed, but we encourage alternatives to declawing due to the problems that can arise from declawing a cat. Some alternatives are: regular nail clipping, providing your cat with appropriate scratching surfaces, or other humane alternatives such as soft paws.
