We are a No-Kill Rescue Shelter for Cats & Dogs

La Crescent Animal Rescue is currently open, by appointment only, to help adopt or surrender an animal, retrieve a lost animal or drop off donations.

The decision to be open by appointment only, comes out of an abundance of caution and in response to health officials’ recommendations to reduce face to face contact to help prevent the spread of COVID19. The animals in our care, the safety of the public and our volunteers are the number one priority.
Please call 507-895-2066 to make an appointment so someone can assist you. We check our voicemail and emails frequently. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Many shelters have been limited on the types of fundraising events that can be held in order to keep communities safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Our shelter is no exception.  The fundraising opportunities are limited but the need to rescue animals continues.  We could not do all that we do without the continued support of our great community!  There are many ways you can help us continue to save those animals in need through donations, supplies and fostering!
