Rescue Shelter

for Cats & Dogs

La Crescent Animal Rescue will be closing to the public starting Saturday, March 14 and will remain closed until May 31st with reevaluation at that time. This decision came out of an abundance of caution and in response to health officials recommendations to reduce face to face contact to prevent the spread of COVID 19. The animals in our care, the safety of the public and the safety of our volunteers are our number one priority right now. We appreciate your patience at this time. If you see an animal on our website that you would like to meet, please call for an appointment. If you have recently adopted an animal from us and this animal requires upcoming vaccinations, please call the shelter at 507-895-2066 to arrange for these vaccinations to be done. If you need to surrender an animal, please call the above number so someone can assist you. We will keep our website updated for your information.
