About Us

About Our Shelter

The River Bluff Humane Society is a private, non-profit organization established September 15, 1983. A hand full of dedicated volunteers saw the need for a Humane Society and took it upon themselves to help the stray, abandoned, sick and homeless animals in the area.

In the Spring of 1990, we began building our current shelter at 1213 Brick Ave. in Red Wing. In February of 1991, we welcomed the first animals into the shelter, no longer relying solely on foster homes. It soon became apparent that a larger facility would be needed to meet all of our needs and began our building addition in the summer of 2002. 

We are currently able to house 100 animals, including litters of puppies and kittens. Our facility now has 16 indoor/outdoor kennels for adoption dogs with heated cement floors in the winter and air conditioning for those hot summer months.

Since 2012 we have been making improvements based on the Guidelines for Standards of Care in Animal Shelters by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians to not only provide the minimum standards but to work towards the ideal. We are continuously striving to do better and to improve the lives of the animals in our care.

2020 Rabies Clinic Cancellation Notice

2020 Rabies Clinic is canceled until farther notice. We are canceling this event due to Covid-19 and the unknowing future to come with it. Once we have a better understanding on when we will be able to safety do the rabies clinic again we will post it on our Facebook and Website.
Thank you
 We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
