Contented Critters is a no-kill animal sanctuary located in Makinen, Minnesota.

contentedcritters-mn

We are a volunteer-run organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and relocation of animals in need.  The majority of the animals coming through our doors are dogs and cats. However, no injured creature that is not in another shelter’s contract area is ever turned away. Many of these animals are found abandoned. Some have been rescued from bad situations and some were simply dropped off by owners who can no longer care for them.
Regardless of breed, age or situation, we provide these animals with appropriate veterinary care and keep them happy and healthy until suitable loving homes can be found for them.

The Cat Association of Topeka (Topeka, Kansas 66604) is a no-kill, non-profit cat shelter that seeks to provide opportunities for adoption of relinquished, stray, and abandoned cats and kittens, and provide a safe alternative environment to care for cats and kittens while they await adoption.

Since C.A.T. is a no-kill shelter, we are limited to the number of cats and kittens that we are able to house. C.A.T. provides shelter for approximately 90-100 felines. The cats we are able to accept are brought to us from a variety of circumstances. Some are relinquished by their owners because of moving, lack of finances, or inability to care for them. Most are stray or abandoned and in need of love and shelter. When space is available, highest priority will be given to those cats and kittens in the most desperate need.

Established in 1996, we are dedicated to caring for and placing stray and abandoned animals in Butler County, Pennsylvania.

All animals are fostered in our homes until a suitable permanent home is found. They receive veterinary care with the necessary age appropriate vaccinations and are spayed/neutered when approximately 6 months of age. We generate revenue by the means of fundraisers, donations, grants, endowments, memorials, bequests and adoption donations.

Camden County Animal Shelter (Blackwood, New Jersey 08012) fights to reduce the overwhelming stray/unwanted animal population in its county. CCAS is an open admissions shelter and takes in over 6,000 companion animals from 17 municipalities in Camden County every year. In 2004, the Animal Welfare Society of Camden County, which currently runs the Camden County Animal Shelter, took over the shelter’s activities. CCAS now does three major things: provide shelter for stray/unwanted animals, find those animals loving homes, and provide low-cost spay/neuter services.

Ruckus (Animal ID #33788693)

CCAS is an open admissions shelter. Its 40+ full and part-time staff work hard to find loving homes for each and every animal that enters the shelter’s doors. The 2011 Animal Intake and Disposition Survey shows that Camden County performs much better than its surrounding counties.

In addition to taking in animals, CCAS holds a multitude of events every year in order to help those looking to adopt to find the animal of their dreams, be it an adoption event or a full-blown gala. Lastly, CCAS provides Camden County with low-cost spay and neutering options. By providing the service at such a low cost, CCAS hopes to reduce the number of stray/unwanted animals in the county.

Brookings Regional Humane Society (Brookings, South Dakota) formed in 1998 to help the Brookings Animal Control Department find homes for stray animals. Prior to BRHS forming, there was no humane society/adoption group; the majority of the animals at Animal Control had to be euthanized. The unclaimed, homeless cats and dogs from Animal Control are BRHS’ priority. Those unclaimed within a five-day holding period are surrendered to BRHS where they get the necessary wellness care and are spayed/neutered. Animal Control brings any sick or injured animals to BRHS for immediate care.  It is rare now for an animal to be euthanized, as this organization continues to accomplish its mission.

In 2013 BRHS was very fortunate to move into its present location across from the Brookings Airport. The building was built specifically to house animals and provides a separate dog kennel area, rooms to house cats, natural lighting, and proper ventilation throughout the whole facility. There are also medical isolation, quarantine, treatment, and surgery rooms.

BRHS has been recognized for and has won multiple awards from both city and national organizations, including several Dog Rescue Awards and a nomination for the Governor’s Award.
