Our goal as a shelter is to reduce the number of stray pets on our streets and make sure they have somewhere safe and warm to stay until they find their forever homes. We highly encourage micro-chipping and spaying and neutering which also helps the high stray population to be reduced. Friends of Animals Humane Society is dedicated to providing care and treatment to dogs and cats located in various portions of Carlton County. We strive daily to not only help them in a time of need, but to improve their lives by finding them their forever homes. Every animal deserves a second chance to live a happy and healthy life. The purpose of this organization is to create a humane and sustainable community for all animals, through education, advocacy and the promotion of respect and compassion.
Come Meet Our Pets...
We are open from noon until 7pm on Mondays, noon until 5 Tuesdays through Thursdays and from noon until 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Fridays we are by appointment only. Feel free to come and meet all of our pets that are waiting for forever homes! Also check out our website at www.foaonline.org for adoption events and lots of other fun things !
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption process starts with filling out an adoption application specific to a dog or cat. There is a 24 hour turn around on the approval process. Once approved, a contract must be read and signed, along with health alerts. Anybody wishing to adopt from Friends of Animals must be 21 years of age to do so. Our current adoption fees for our cats are $90 for kittens (under 1 year old), and $60 for adult cats. There are usually a few longer term or older cats whose fee is $30. The current fees for our dogs vary. They range from $250 and up, dependent on several factors such as age, type, size, etc. All cats leaving the shelter must be in a pet carrier. And all dogs leaving the shelter must be on a leash.
