Our Mission

Windmill Animal Rescue is a nonprofit organization devoted to the health and wellbeing of animals. The shelter is located in New Market, MN, just 30 minutes south of the Twin Cities. The shelter serves the areas of Farmington, Lakeville, New Prague, Shakopee, Credit River and may other local communities. Windmill also needs donations and volunteers to maintain the facility and care for the cats. Windmill Animal Rescue is housed in and supported by Windmill Feed and Supply Company, where all pet supplies can be purchased.

Adoption Policy


To adopt an animal you must complete these steps: 
 Fill out the Pre-Adoption Application. Obtain by writing to
  Wait for approval from at least three Board Members. 
Select and meet your pet before, after, or during the first two steps.
Obtain all necessary supplies for your new pet before adoption day. Food and litter are available for purchase at the shelter.  
Complete the Final Adoption Agreement and pay the necessary adoption fee before leaving the Windmill Animal Rescue with your new forever friend. 

Because of the shelter circumstances, the cats are indoor/outdoor kitties. It is preferred, but not required, that they spend their lives as indoor, non-declawed cats (some cats arrive already declawed). These pets need a forever home with lots of love and attention.
