Heart of Minnesota Animal Shelter of McLeod County


Our Pet List

Who We Are

The Heart of Minnesota Animal Shelter of McLeod County is devoted to the care of unwanted, stray or abused animals in the form of providing veterinary care, housing and adoption in the McLeod County area. We are further devoted to the education of the public regarding animal care and overpopulation.

We've lowered our prices on kittens to $49 with a spay/neuter deposit of $50 if the kitten is under 6 mos of age. Once you provide proof that the kitten has been spayed or neutered, we will mail the deposit back to you. We have kittens of all shapes, sizes, and personalities.

We need foster homes for dogs and cats. All of our animals can benefit from a vacation from the shelter. Some of our teenage kittens have spent their whole lives in cat condos, and never had the chance to claim a chair as their very own. If you don't have time to volunteer man hours, volunteer your lap for petting kitties. Give a shelter kitty a break and welcome them into your home. Help bring that shy kitty out of his shell so he's more adoptable. We also have plenty of dogs that could use extra obedience training and a change of scenery from the shelter. Teach a shelter dog new tricks, and help socialize them for their furr-ever family. Please contact us at contact@heartofminnesota.org or call us at 320-234-9699 if you are interested in this opportunity!

Bring your recycled aluminum cans to the trailer at the shelter. All the money earned from recycling benefits the animals!

We are always looking for sponsors for our pet of the week ads that appear weekly in the Hutchinson Leader Shopper. Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring one of our animals. It's a great way to get the word out about our available animals. It's $25 to sponsor a pet for a week. Want for that someone that has everything? Mother's Day or Father's Day? Graduation gift? Sponsor a pet-of-the-week in their honor.

We can always use more man power. If you are interested in volunteering, please stop by our main building during adoption hours and fill out a volunteer application. If you have a talent, we can use it...if you don't want to work directly with the animals, we have plenty of behind-the-scene projects available too.

We are currently looking for two coordinators for our annual pet walk (held in the spring). If you are interested in either of these volunteer opportunities, please contact us.
