What We Do

*Take in stray pets for both Redwood and Renville counties. If you have found a dog or cat, please call your local police or sheriff (non-emergency line) to have them bring the pet in to the shelter.  RAAS does not provide animal control services.

*Rehome unclaimed strays. After the stray hold is up, stray pets are made available to the public for adoption.

*Take in surrendered pets and rehome them.  If you have a pet that needs to be surrendered, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853.  Space is limited and all surrenders need to be approved by staff.

What We Are

Duke Memorial Redwood Area Animal Shelter (RAAS) is a private shelter located in Redwood Falls, MN.  This means that we depend on the donations from the kind folk in our area, plus the adoption fees, to keep the lights on and the critters fed.

Brie (pink collar) and Gouda (on basket) have to inspect the wonderful new set of goodies that were donated recently. They later claimed the basket as their own.

Almost all the pets available through RAAS are housed at the shelter building in Redwood Falls. (Map above.) We are a place to safely house dogs and cats until a home can be found for each. We never put an animal down for space.

Volunteers are welcome to play with the critters, even if you aren’t looking to adopt!  We love our volunteers!  We encourage visitors to come during open hours and visit the dogs and cats, no appointment necessary.

Our cats are housed in community rooms rather than cages, so that visitors can easily stop in to groom or play with or just provide a warm lap and some petting for the various cats in each room. We provide toys and grooming tools, and treats as they are available.  Donations of treats are always welcome!

We also welcome visitors to walk and play with our adoptable dogs.
