The Pennington County Humane Society animal shelter is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Animal Health (license # MN139638) for up to 27 dogs/puppies & up to 60 cats/kittens. The shelter is more often than not filled to the maximum allowed by the license. While we try to keep the available animals listed online, we may have missed a few – so if you don’t see what you want, please give us a call.
In order to adopt from Pennington County Humane Society, you must be over 21 years of age. You must own the home where you are living or have a signed statement from your landlord giving permission for you to have a pet in a leased or rented home
Cats must be kept indoors at all time, unless leashed & accompanied by a responsible adult. Many mobile home parks have their own set of rules, so please check with the park manager before attempting to adopt.
Many cities have ordinances in regard to pets that must be followed. This includes proper vaccinations & licensing. Some communities may restrict the number of pets allowed in each household. Be sure to check your local ordinances before attempting to adopt.
All adoptions must be done by the person who the pet will be living with the majority of the time. We do not allow adopting pets as gifts for other people. You may, however, pay the adoption fee for a pet & we will provide a “gift certificate” which allows the recipient to adopt without additional cost. The recipient must meet the guidelines listed above in order to adopt. Adoption fees are non-refundable.
