**Reunited with his owner** Nestor

Nestor is a sweet younger guy, he is very calm and doesn’t seem to let much bother him. His life on the streets has taught him that soaking up all that indoor warmth, love, attention and wet food might be exactly what he’s looking for. Please come in and visit him Mon-Friday 2-6 and Saturday 10-noon 507-644-3853


Buddy is a very laid back older gem that is front declawed. He can have some senior moments of “hey kids get off my catbed!” but please don’t let the occasional gruff personality fool you he is a softie at heart. Please come and visit him Mon-Friday 2-6 and Saturdays 10-noon 507-644-3853

Captain, Sailor, Polly and Jack Sparrow **Are all ready to be adopted!

Jack Sparrow

Captain, Polly and Sailor are all siblings that were rescued by a gentleman in Lamberton. He found them during one of the very bad rain storms we had trying to hide in a tractor tire. The littlest one (Captain) was drowning in a puddle and unable to get out. He got them all home and warmed up and tried his hand at feeding them, when he discovered he needed some help he brought them into us and we were able to bring them back to full health and now they are thriving! Jack Sparrow was found alone and brought in and since he is similar sized we decided he could be an adoptive sibling to the other 3! They won’t be ready for adoption for a little while yet as they are still very tiny and need to grow, but we wanted to introduce them to everyone!


Charleston is part of a litter that came in when their owner passed away. Charleston is looking for a family of his own or one that he can share! Please call or come in and meet him Mon-Fri 2pm to 6pm or Saturdays 10am to noon. 507-644-3853


Beechie is part of a litter that came into the shelter when their owner passed away. He is looking for a forever home of his own or to share one! Please call or come in to visit the cute guy Mon-Fri 2pm to 6pm or Saturdays 10am to noon. 507-644-3853

Rosie Crossed the Rainbow Bridge

Rosie the sweet and talkative is looking for a patient and quiet home to call her own!


Rosie is back and still looking for that perfect home. She is our second longest resident at the shelter, having been here for more than 2 years. Rosie is a personality that is absolutely AMAZING once she trusts you. She will go up to staff and “talk” to them until she gets attention. She loves to hang out with or near her people! However, she is also a personality that requires you to earn that trust. We are unsure what she went through in the past, but trust does not come quick and easy to Rosie. It took her several months to start to come out of her shell when she first arrived at the shelter. She will need that same kind of patience in whatever home decides to take her in. She is also not a fan of a lot of activity and noise, so would likely not do well in a household with young children. She also does not much care for dogs, though would likely get used to a quiet dog that let her be. (There is a small terrier mix that she doesn’t mind.) She gets along just fine with cats, and is currently housed in a room that usually has no less than 8 cats at any given time. She loves soft chairs (she is always taking over the adoption coordinator’s chair in the lobby!) and also hidey holes to be her comfort zone.

Rosie was born around 2009.

She is a big girl at about 18 lbs. She loves her food a little too much! She could due to lose a little weight.

She was surrendered to the shelter at 8 years old back on May 12, 2017.


Rosie is spayed and kept up to date on her vaccinations. She is also kept up to date on her dewormings and her topical flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution.)

If you think you have a place in your family for Rosie, come visit her at the shelter, no appointment necessary, M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-noon. You can also call at 507-644-3853.

Update June 18, 2019: Rosie’s home sadly did not work out. 🙁

Update June 7, 2019: Our third longest resident has found a home!!! Rosie was at the shelter for over two years after she was surrendered, but she has finally found a new family to call her own! Yay!!!
