About Us

"We can't save them all but we sure wish we could."

Northern Lakes Rescue is a 501(C)(3) Dog Rescue that serves the community in northern Minnesota as well as areas of Texas where dogs are at risk of being euthanized from over population. We rescue stray, neglected, and unwanted dogs provide them with the care they need for a second chance at life with a new family, this includes getting medical care, training, and love from a foster family. We are 99% all volunteer based that works hard everyday to focus on our mission of saving the dogs we can.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to be a voice for those who are voiceless. We hear them with our hearts and give them a voice. Looking into the eyes of a rescued animal will speak volumes; watching those eyes light up will have an everlasting impact on you and the rescued animals.

We aren’t a typical rescue as we don’t take in dogs and put them in kennels until they’re adopted. All dogs we rescue are placed in loving foster homes that teach them to be the best dog they can be.

Our journey doesn’t end with adoption, either. We are here for you to support you in integrating your new member into your home, cheer new triumphs, and help with struggles.

You don’t adopt a dog from us. You adopt a family.
