About Us





"Caring for animals in need. 

The homeless, strays, abused, neglected, lost. Heal them, love them, help them find a home." 


Adopting A Friend



All of our animals have a set adoption fee.  This fee helps defray the cost of the medical care and other occupancy costs associated with the shelter. All animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Simply come during adoption hours to visit with an animal. For current adoption hours and/or to view animals available for adoption, please visit our website. www.northwoodshs.org


Who We Are



Northwoods Humane Society is a 501(c)(3)   non-profit organization founded in 1975 by a group of caring individuals who saw a need for sheltering unwanted animals in Chisago County. All of these animals were housed in foster homes until the dream of a building could come true. In 2000 the doors were opened for our location in Wyoming, MN. 

Our main services include: 

· Adopting out pets into new homes. All adoptable animals remain in our care until they find new homes. 

· Accepting surrenders of cats & dogs by appointment.

· Helping reunite lost & found pets.

· Assisting with low-cost spay & neuter  programs available to the public.

· Volunteer opportunities.
