The Wadena County Humane Society is a rescue and adoption point for dogs and cats of all ages. Some lost their home through the death of their best friend, some were not allowed in a rental unit with their owner, some needed to be surrendered due to life changing events, others had been abandoned or abused. Most of the animals would be an excellent companion with the right home, training, and care. When you are looking for your new companion come visit the Wadena County Humane Society. Stop in and see the many companions looking for the right home. They are so loveable and affectionate, they are just waiting to share their love and affection with you.
The Wadena County Humane Society is located at 310 NW Ash Avenue (North Side of Highway 10 West)
Our Adoption Process:
The Wadena County Humane has an adoption process to assist in matching the animal with the right home, for both the pet and owner. Each animal has been examined and medicated for any internal or external parasites and started with basic immunizations. Additionally, all cats available for adoption have been tested negative for Feline Leukemia. Your adoption contract will require you to neuter or spay an adopted animal if it has not already been done. There are animals that have already been neutered or spayed that are available for adoption as well. Sexually mature animals are neutered or spayed before leaving the shelter.
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.
