Noah's Bark animal orphanage started up in the year of 2000'. We hope you will find just what you are looking for on our pet list. Descriptions and personalities, and pictures are available under more info on each pet. At this time Noah's Bark is solely supported by the animals it adopts out and the drop off charges. We always welcome volunteers to help work the shelter. It is best to call me by phone instead of e-mailing if you are really serious about adopting a certain pet-as I don't always get time to answer my e-mails right away. I usually answer back my phone messages within a 1 to a 24 hour period. Noah's Bark accepts any type of donations. We are not state, federal or grant funded at this time. We operate solely on what we get for the pets adopted out. If you would like to donate to the shelter, we are in need of the following. leashes, collars, dog food of any kind, (Beneful if my favorite), or we sometimes use Pedigree and other Purina products also.. Puppy food. (Purina Puppy Chow if what I buy when I purchase it). Blankets, towels, paper towels, garbage bags, laundry soap, dish soap, treats, toys, disinfectant, and of course money for utilities, (LP Gas, Phone, Electric ). vet Bills, vaccinations, wormer, antibiotics, office supplies, advertising,gas to transport, etc........ It can be very costly to operate a shelter, so any donations are appreciated.
All of the animals that come into the shelter are surrendered, rescued or unwanted litters of puppies due to not neutering and spaying. We hope you will enjoy viewing the website and hope you will find the right pet for you and your family. The Shelter address has changed to Decorah, Iowa, so at a later date you will only be able to bring up the website at Decorah, Iowa not Canton Minnesota.,
Adopting a friend
All animals that come into Noah's Bark are updated on all of their shots and wormed. This is included in the adoption price. Noah's Bark, Inc has a 501c3 . So all donations beyond adoptions are tax deductible.We spay and neuter all dogs 6 months or older before leaving the shelter. A contract has to be signed for by the adoptee for puppies under 6 months old to get them spayed and neutered by the required date. For those not fixed you are required to sign a Neuter / Spay contract, in which you will be given a certain amount of time to spay or neuter the animal. Please call for an appointments or questions. Any volunteers are greatly appreciated. If you are interested in fostering give me a call.
If you are interested in adopting or have questions on a certain dog, cat or other animal. Please feel free to call us at
563-745-8627. It is best to call instead of e-mail, as I have had some problems with my e-mail in the recent past and sometimes can not get them all to come up. I will return your call as soon as I can, which is usually within 2 to 24 hours.
Come Visit Us!
Canton, Minnesota is located in Southeast Minnesota, right on the Iowa Minnesota border, one hour south of Rochester off of Highway 52, and 1 hour from Lacrosse 44 to 52. We are located 2-1/4 miles south of Canton. All adoptions are done BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, but we are real flexible on hours and work with the clients schedule. We also do weekend and evening appointments. Scheduling appointments give me more one on one attention with clients as it is difficult to do more than one adoption at a time. So please call for you appointment today. Also please don't use map quest-as it will take you the opposite direction you need to go. I would be happy to give you directions to the shelter.
