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
