About Us


We always need volunteers!!! Below are some examples of what we need:

Adoption Center Cat Care Volunteers:

We are looking for volunteers to help with our animals at the Luv a Pet center at PetSmart in St Louis Park and at the Roseville Petco. It is one day a week and consists of light cage cleaning and playing with our cats and kittens

Cat and Kitten Gift of Life Provider:

Temporary fosters will be responsible for housing our animals until a space opens up at one of the Petsmart locations.  The stay could be anywhere from a few days to a few short weeks. Everything you need will be provided for you:  cages, bedding, litterpans, litter, dishes, food, and toys.  All the animals coming to you will be fully vetted and healthy.  All that is required of you is to provide some love and attention to the cat/s, kitten/s in your care. When a cage become available you will be notified and arrangements will be made for you to drop the animal/s off at Petsmart. Adoption events are also a possibility.  This involves bringing the animal/s to an adoption event for a few short hours.

Dog and Puppy Gift of Life Providers:
We will also be looking for more dog and puppy fosters.  This involves housing the animal/s until a permanent home can be found for them.  Everything you need is provided for you.  This may involve taking the animal to the vet for sterilizations and bringing them to adoption events.  You get to pick which animal/s you wish to foster and for how long.

Adopting A Friend

Our animals are all sterilized, current on their vaccinations (age appropriate), wormers, and complete vet exam prior to adoption. Our cats are all FeLV tested.

Our animals are available for adoption at the Saint Louis Park Petsmart, Roseville Petsmart, Brooklyn Park Petco, and Roseville Petco.

Who We Are

Gentle Touch Animal Sanctuary was founded in 2001 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal rescue and placement organization.  Our mission is to find homes for homeless and abandoned animals by providing refuge in a comfortable, safe environment until new permanent homes can be found.

After 10 years of having a cage-free shelter environment for our animals we are now going through a transition period from shelter based to foster based.  Our animals are placed into loving caring temporary homes until they can find new homes of their own.  Before each animal is placed for adoption, they receive a vet exam, vaccinations, spay or neuter, and are treated for any known medical issues such as colds or other minor medical issues.

Some of our animals require major medical treatments before they become available for adoption.  GTAS does not turn any animal away needing medical treatment (provided space is available).

As a volunteer-based organization, our volunteers provide the necessary daily care and love needed by all the animals seven days a week. These dedicated and caring volunteers are the foundation of our organization.

Come Visit Us

We are a foster based organization with cats at the Saint Louis Park Petsmart, Roseville Petsmart, Brooklyn Park Petco, and Roseville Petco.
