Who We Are

Marshmallow Foundation

The Marshmallow Foundation is a non-profit rescue and shelter that was set up in honor of ‘Cocoa’ and her ‘Eleven Marshmallows’, a Lab mom who had been abandoned and locked in a house for 3 weeks. Rescued by an Iowan Sheriff and obviously pregnant, she was taken to a local Vet. After receiving her donated care and through the generosity and compassion of many, Cocoa came to rest in Minnesota at the Livingston-Wiedewitsch home and went on to whelp an astonishing eleven puppies. All were adopted into loving homes, but there are more that need our help. The ultimate goal, of course, is to end this nightmare of unwanted companion animals but that can only be accomplished through heightened public awareness and active promotion of a spay/neuter program.

Let us explain that the Foundation is also part of the Seven-City Animal Impound, which is a public resource for stray, abandoned and rescued companion animals, and serves the cities of Audubon, Callaway, Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Lake Park, Waubun, and Mahnomen. We also cover Becker County if needed. Animals are impounded for five (5) days, by law, then turned over to the Marshmallow Foundation so that basic medical care and physical needs may be met. Afterward, they become the Marshmallow Foundation's responsibility for long-term care, feeding, housing, and medical treatment, including vaccinations, until they can be adopted. We are a ’low-kill’ facility, so often, animals are with us for months until homes can be found.

We are supported in our adoption program solely by donations and fundraising. PetSmart in North Dakota regularly hosts adoption days for our animals. Please call ahead to find out the schedule. In addition to posting our adoptable pets on our website and Facebook page, we are fortunate to be able to promote them via Petfinder.com and Adoptapet.com. The cats, dogs, and everyone here at the Marshmallow Foundation would like to extend a great big THANK YOU to these generous groups for helping us promote our furry friends!
