Shelter Fest will help dogs, cats

Email News Alerts

A “no kill” shelter for homeless animals is, as the name implies, dedicated to making sure all of the dogs and cats under its care find “forever homes” with pet lovers who can give them a happy, healthy, long life.


Such is the mission of the Humane Society of the Lakes, which takes in kittens, cats, puppies and dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds from throughout Becker County.
