It is the mission of Humane Society of the Lakes to provide services for abandoned, stray or unwanted animals while they await lifelong homes.

Our vision is that all animals are cared for with
dignity and respect.

The Humane Society of the Lakes operates a no kill shelter for homeless animals of the Becker County area. Space is limited. Animals are taken in as room is made available when others find their forever home.
Adoptable animals can be viewed during our
business hours:
Tuesday - Friday 12:00pm-6:00pm and
Saturdays 11:00am-4:00pm

If you are interested in adopting one of our pets, please check the Adoptable Animals section of this website. If you find an animal that you like, please fill out the Adoption Application. The adoption process includes: completed adoption application, staff supervised visit between animal and potential adopter(s), meet and greet between animal and any animals currently in potential adopter(s) home, completion of adoption contract and staff authorization of adoption.
HSL Adoption fees for
Dogs are $155.00 and Cats are $125.00.

As always, additional contributions are greatly appreciated.
