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 right now.
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.

Established in 2005, La Crescent Animal Rescue (LAR) is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c) 3

Our rescue shelter depends solely on the support and generosity of our volunteers and community
to help give animals the best care and love they so richly deserve. Learn More.


Help us rescue cats
from hoarding!

LAR is facing an extremely serious and expensive undertaking of a cat hoarding situation. There are over 40 animals in need of rescue and some require immediate medical attention.

This will be a massive project and way more expensive than we can afford. ANY contribution the community and concerned animal lovers can do will allow us to rescue these poor souls and get them the help, love and homes they deserve.

Donations can be made through our GoFundMe campaign, or PayPal or Venmo buttons below:
