About Our Shelter:

The mission of the Mesabi Humane Society is to promote humane treatment through sheltering, alteration, adoption and community education.The Range Animal Shelter incorporated and became a non-profit organization in the fall of 1978. The name of the organization was changed to the Mesabi Humane Society in 1981, at which time we became a chapter of the Minnesota State Humane Society. All offices and duties of the society were housed by volunteers in their own homes. All money donated and raised during fund raising activities of the society was deposited into a special account specified for the building expenses of the shelter. In the spring of 1986, the construction of the shelter building began. The Humane Society owned and operated Range Animal center, opened the doors to the public for animal care in October 1986. This has all been possible because of the wonderful caring and generous people that live in the Iron Range. The Mesabi Humane Society is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization

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.
