Northern Lakes Rescue

Northern Lakes Rescue is a 501(c)(3) FOSTER HOME BASED rescue. We do NOT have our dogs in a single shelter. NLR is an organization run by several volunteers that work hard everyday to help save dogs not only here in Minnesota shelters, reservations, and owner surrenders, but also in Texas, including strays on the streets of Houston, Chained Dogs of Houston, and high-kill shelters (a number of which come to the rescue being heartworm positive).

Northern Lakes Rescue not only rescues dogs, but also focuses on helping people in need, donating food and supplies to low-income shelters, and assisting owners that need help keeping their current dogs.

Show The Love

Our volunteers devote the time and work necessary for these dogs to be rehabilitated and
able to live a happy life with loving families.
