Prairie’s Edge Humane Society (formerly known as Rice County Humane Society) is a non-profit organization serving Rice County since 1985.

Our Mission: to promote the value of animals through care and education

  • We believe animals have intrinsic value and enrich human lives
  • We promote spay/neuter to reduce the number of unwanted animals
  • We offer information and programs to help people keep animals in their homes
  • We welcome all animals and provide them with care that is appropriate, practical, and kind
  • We provide pets for adoption
  • We provide humane and appropriate care, including euthanasia if warranted, to the animals we shelter
  • We value careful stewardship of the society’s resources

Animals at our facility do not have a time limit; we do everything we can to find good homes for all adoptable animals. All our animals are spayed/neutered before going to their new homes. All animals are current on core vaccinations (including rabies if old enough).

Our organization is a donor-supported, non-profit (501(c)3) corporation. We rely on the generosity of individuals and local businesses to provide our services. We utilize paid staff and volunteers to rehome abandoned and unwanted animals, and place unclaimed pets into new, loving homes. Prairie's Edge Humane Society thanks its generous donors for supporting our work. Together, we can continue our mission!

Prairie's Edge Humane Society is located in Faribault, Minnesota, approximately 50 miles South of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area.
