About Our Shelter:

The Headwaters Animal Shelter, located in Park Rapids Minnesota, is a non-profit 501c(3) organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for abandoned, surrendered, neglected, abused and stray animals. We do not receive funding from any federal, state or national humane agencies. We rely almost 100% on donations, fund raising events and generosity of our community to fund the expenses associated with operating the Shelter.

To name just a few of our fund raising events, we have an annual auction, raffle items, plant sales, food booths, Christmas photo shoots and rummage sales. We are always looking for ways to promote and raise awareness of our animal shelter while at the same time help raise funds to support it.

Since opening our brand new facility in April 2003, on average we service around 450+ animals every year! A lot of those animals would have been left homeless, killed or be neglected if not for our service. In August 2004 we have implemented 100% pre-adoption spay and neuter Program. All animals since August 2004 that leave the shelter will be spayed or neutered!

Our members and volunteers provide us with the helping hands we need to care for the animals, and to help raise funding and awareness of our needs and mission. On behalf of the animals, we thank you for your support and invite you to visit us often at www.headwatersanimalshelter.org!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
