Finding the Perfect Pet Can Be Easy, But There’s Lots to Consider!

If you’re interested in pet adoption, here’s how in 5 basic steps.

  • Think about your lifestyle and what you would like in a pet. Then visit the Humane Society and get to know our animals to see if one would be a good match for you. Most of our adoptable pets are also featured below and through
  • Once you have selected the right pet, complete the RBHS Application for Adoption. It takes 24 to 48 hours to process the application, so applications should be turned in before 4:30 pm. We will need to verify the information on your application and discuss the animal with you in order to approve the application. We reserve the right to deny any adoption for any reason. Please note that an approved application is not a guarantee that the particular animal will be available to you at a future date/time and that an application that is approved for one animal may not be transferable to another animal. 
  • Once your application has been approved and you have agreed to adopt the animal, we will give you copies of the animal’s information including vaccination and any other veterinary history.
  • The adoption fee is due at this time. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
  • Take your new pet home and enjoy the love!

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will you keep an animal up for adoption?
As long as necessary. We do not euthanize pets simply because they have not been adopted out within a certain time frame. We work with other shelters and rescue groups to try and find homes for all of our animals. See our euthanasia policy here.
What is required to have a pet in the City of Red Wing?
All dogs and cats within the city limits are required to have a rabies vaccination and a license. Licenses are available at the Humane Society. For more information, visit our licensing page.
I'd like to support the Humane Society, how can I help?
You can help in many different ways such as donating money, items we can use, or your time as a volunteer. We are very grateful for any support you are able to give!
Do you have foster homes? Can I foster an animal?
We do not currently utilize foster homes. It is something we did many years ago and may do again in the future. We are currently trying to improve our shelter facility and focusing on the work we do while leaving fostering to the rescues who already have great systems in place for fosters.
Why do you charge the adoption fees that you do?
