The Faribault County Humane Society (FCHS) is located in Blue Earth, Minnesota.

FCHS was originally established in 1985, but it disbanded after a few years. In July  2008,  a group of people revived the humane society, and FCHS has continued to make a difference!

By law, lost or stray animals must be held for five business days. Much to our alarm, unclaimed animals were often euthanized.

FCHS started saving the animals. We are very busy - finding homes for about 100 animals each year.

Eventually, FCHS began taking care of the local dog pound. The pound was a small metal building with limited creature comforts. The humane society made and paid for many improvements (air conditioning, windows, a second door, new dog kennels, multi-level cat cages).

Big News: Due to generous donors, FCHS purchased a much bigger and better building in 2022. We moved into the building in 2023, and the renovations will be completed as funding is available.

FCHS volunteers go to the shelter three times a day to care for the animals. We provide food and water, empty litter boxes, and exercise the animals. The collected fees are reinvested in the care of the animals.


Could you help us at the shelter? It just takes a few minutes, and we can always use more volunteers.

Foster Homes

Could you foster a cat or dog? We provide the food and litter and pay for all needed medical expenses. You provide the home and love.

Adoption Policy

Adoption Process

If you are interested in adopting a pet, please call, mail, or email the Faribault County Humane Society.

An application will be mailed or emailed to you. Once we receive the completed form, we will check your references, and determine if you and the pet are a good match. Sometimes several families want the same pet, so we determine the best placement.

You may also use our online adoption application.

It may take a few days to process your application. We are all volunteers.
