About Our Rescue Group:

In 1990, some children in the town of New Market, MN, brought a stray mother cat and her kittens to the local feed/pet store to be cared for. That was the beginning.
As the years went by, more animals were brought in. They included orphans, strays, and lost domestic animals, some injured. Even local wildlife, such as orphaned raccoon kits, young squirrels that had fallen from their nests, robins, blue jays, even hawks and owls in need of medical attention, food, or a place to recover were brought in.

Toni Maat, owner of Windmill Feed & Pet, turned this impromptu concept into a non-profit rescue organization. In December of 2003, Windmill Animal Rescue was formed.

The non-profit shelter is located in New Market, MN, just 30 minutes south of downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul. There are more than 70 cats living at the shelter that need good homes. The shelter also needs foster homes, donations, and volunteers to help clean the facility and take care of the cats. The shelter is housed in and supported by Windmill Feed and Supply Company where all pet supplies can be purchased.

Come Meet our Pets:

Windmill Animal Rescue is located inside of Windmill Feed and Pet supply. The larger animals that live on premise are generally cage free, so you can come meet them as they roam the store and grounds during store hours. Check out our website at for hours or more information.

Our Adoption Process:

All adoptions require an adoption application be filled out. These applications can be picked up at Windmill Feed and Pet supply, which is the store that houses Windmill Animal Rescue. Cat or Dog applications require approval from the Windmill Animal Rescue board of directors. A background check will be done with the adopters vet and additional questions may be asked to assure the right homes are found.

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.
