Our Mission

We currently house only the available cats at the shelter facility.  All dogs are housed in foster homes. If you wish to meet one of our available dogs, please fill out an adoption application to arrange an appointment with the foster parent/s. 

Prairie's Edge Humane Society is a non-profit organization serving southern MN since 1985.

Our Mission Statement: To Promote the Value of Animals Through Care and Education.

Animals do not run out of time at Prairie's Edge Humane Society they stay with us either at the shelter or in foster homes until they are adopted into their forever home. 

We are a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation. We rely on the generosity of individuals and local businesses to provide our services.

Adoption Policy

Prior to adopting a pet from Prairie’s Edge Humane Society, you will need to personally visit and spend time with the animal at the shelter or foster home. If you have a spouse and children we will also ask that the entire family meet with the animal before the adoption is approved. If you are adopting a dog and currently have a dog, prior to the adoption being approved we will ask you to set up an appointment to bring your current dog to meet the new dog so that we are sure the two dogs will be compatible.

Please be aware that all applications must be approved by our staff. If you rent your home a staff member from Prairie’s Edge Humane Society will need to talk directly to your landlord to verify that pets are allowed at the property you rent. Please bring your landlords current phone number with you. If you rent your home our staff cannot approve the adoption until your landlord has been reached.

Certain animals may require a manager approval for adoption.
