Guinness

Guinness needs a new home! Your guess on breed is as good as ours; maybe he has 3 or 4 breeds in him. He’s got some kind of water dog like Labrador retriever or Chesapeake Bay retriever in him, as his fur has a similar oiliness, texture, and smell to your average retriever. We are estimating him to be around 2 to 3 years old; he is a happy, energetic young dog. He is 59 pounds.
He has been introduced to multiple cats in multiple situations and did just fine with them. He can be reactive with some dogs, and others not, but as a result we would recommend he be an only dog. He has met children, and while he does have some energy and was a bit jumpy and rambunctious, he was quite friendly and seemed to very much enjoy their company. Small children may be overwhelmed by him unless the parents are willing to continue Guinness’ training to not jump on people. Just in general, he enjoys the company of people. We are not sure of his history, as he was an abandonment case, but he does appear to have been hit at his last home, as he has a strong duck reaction to fast movement. He just acts like he wants to avoid getting hurt; there is no defensiveness to him at all. He is an all around very nice, friendly dog. He is smart too; he is quite eager to learn, especially when a treat is involved. He wants to please.

Guinness has been neutered and will come up to date on his shots as a part of his adoption fee. He has also been wormed and treated topically with a flea/tick/mite preventative (Vectra 3D)

If you are interested in adopting Guinness, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or stop in during open hours and meet him, no appointment necessary. Hours are M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to come play with or walk Guinness while he waits for a forever home; he will greatly appreciate it!

Pirate needs a new home! He was surrendered to the shelter with a bad infection to his right eye which, though the infection has cleared, has left some scarring on his eye. Pirate is probably the sweetest kitten at the whole shelter. He is just amazingly friendly! You must meet him to really know what I mean. He also loves to tug on toys like a puppy; He is such a character!

Pirate, as a part of his adoption fee, will be neutered and up to date on his vaccinations, has been wormed, treated with ant-giardia and anti-coccidia medications as preventatives, treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), and has had an antifungal bath.

Benji

Meet Benji! Benji is an energetic little terrier Heinz 57 mix. He is 11 pounds and young, probably around 2 years old. He was brought in by the Hector Police last Monday (July 9) as an impound, but the owner hasn’t come to claim him. He is now up for adoption as of Tuesday, July 17th. He is playful and opinionated. He gets along with cats and small dogs. He wouldn’t be a good fit for a home with young children, but older children should be fine. Call 507-644-3853 for more information or stop in the shelter to visit with Benji.

Update 7/20: Benji is still looking for a home! Gustav, a regular volunteer at the shelter (he’s the sable fuzzball) invited Benji to join him at Ramsey Park today, and Benji LOVED it! He really enjoys car rides, though he wasn’t content to sit in the back. He had to join Gustav up front. (He is an opinionated little fellow.) I think he would have preferred my lap, except I tied him to the seat so that he had to stay on his side. Sorry, Benji, I can’t have you distracting me while driving. And oh, once we reached the park, he was so excited! He couldn’t take in the sights and smells fast enough. We went for several miles all over the park. When we stopped at the overlook, Benji had to jump up and sit next to me on the bench for a bit. He really seems to like to be close to the people he trusts. He is really quite smart. He was already picking up on some of my signals just in the time we spent together in the park. With some time put into his training, who knows what he could learn!

Benji is a friendly little Heinz 57 terrier mix (your guess is as good as ours for breed!) He weighs in at 11 lbs. We estimate he is around 2 years old. He is young and full of energy! He enjoys the company of other small dogs, and seems fine with the cats he’s met. He can be intimidated by large dogs. We would also like to see him go to a home without young children.

Benji has a neuter appointment set up soon, which is included in his adoption fee. He has also been updated on his shots, tested negative for heartworm, wormed, and treated topically with a flea/tick preventative.

If you are interested in adopting Benji, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853 or else feel free to stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary. M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, come on in and play with the critters. It makes their stay more pleasant while they wait for a forever home!

Quinn

Quinn needs a new home! Quinn is a sweet, sweet German shepherd/Siberian husky mix. (Both parents are purebreds.) Quinn is only 6 months old and already over 60 lbs; he will be a large dog full grown. He is a very smart and well mannered dog (for his age- he is a puppy!) His first owner took excellent care of him. He rarely left her side. The only reason he is at the shelter is that her health suddenly took a turn, such that she could not take care of a large breed puppy. He was very much loved, and it shows. He wants to be with people as much as possible. He is used to living indoors with his family, and we would like to see his new home be the same. He is very good about riding in a car. He is good with other dogs and kids. He will chase cats, though. He is a very good natured dog!

Quinn is a special needs dog. He was born with his right front leg attached to his chest, which his first owner had surgically fixed as well as it could. His leg is mostly functional, though does have some defects and will never be fully normal. (See the picture.) Quinn gets around great despite.

Quinn will be neutered shortly, and is up to date on his vaccinations, is tested negative for heartworm, wormed, and treated topically with a flea/tick preventative (Vectra 3D)

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1, no appointment necessary. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in and play with Quinn or take him on a walk. He would love the attention while he waits for his forever home!

Bane is still looking for a new home! Bane is a purebred, registerable (comes with registration form) black Labrador retriever. Both of his parents were working hunting dogs, though Bane himself has not been trained. Bane is three years old. He is a very happy, friendly, exuberant fellow with lots of energy. Gets along great with other dogs and is used to kids. He is 96 lbs, so a big fellow.

Bane has been neutered. He is up to date on his vaccinations, has been tested negative for heartworm, been wormed, and has been treated topically for flea/ticks (Vectra 3D.)

If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1, no appointment necessary.

Marlin. Male, brown tabby and white, DSH. Born appx. May 15, 2018.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Marlin needs a home! Marlin was originally found as one sick kitten on the side of the road. He likely tumbled out of a tractor or truck where cats are wont to stash their kittens, and rolled out as it shot down the highway. As Rolo was found about the same time, and on the same road only a few miles further west, we strongly suspect the two are siblings. Marlin has now returned to full health and vigor. He is one of the sweetest little kittens you will ever meet! He and Rolo are some of the first to greet you when you go into their room, and do so love to play with your shoelaces, or be held, or climb in your lap.

Marlin will be neutered and will be up to date on his shots as a part of the adoption fee. He has also been wormed, tested negative for feline leukemia, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, has been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), and has been given an antifungal bath.

If you would like to adopt, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else feel free to stop in and meet him, no appointment necessary, during open hours. (M-F 3-7 and Sat 11-1.) Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, feel free to stop in and play with the critters; they love it!

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Rolo needs a new home! He got his name because he was seen rolled by a car not once, not twice, but three times! This right in the middle of busy Hwy. 19 by the Dari King. The person who saw this was able to grab him before he actually got hit. Thankfully, he was uninjured from his ordeal. As Marlin was found about the same time, and on the same road only a few miles further east, we strongly suspect the two are siblings. Rolo is an exceptionally sweet and playful kitten. He and Rolo are some of the first to greet you when you go into their room, and do so love to play with your shoelaces, or be held, or climb in your lap.

Rolo will be neutered and will be up to date on his shots as a part of the adoption fee. He has also been wormed, tested negative for feline leukemia, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, has been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), and has been given an antifungal bath.
