What's happening...

A new home for the shelter in 2017!

Friends of Animals will be moving to a new home this Spring!   We will be located at the corner of 10th Street and Avenue B in downtown Cloquet, just a block down the street from Pedro's.  If you've lived in the area for some time, you may know it as the former Carlton County Services Center. 

We've more than doubled our square footage.  We will have 3 meet and greet rooms, 2 check up rooms, a surgical suite, plus a much more calming, relaxing environment for our animals as they wait patiently for their forever home!

If you can make a donation to support our remodeling efforts - fantastic. Click HERE for more information on donating.Pastehttp://conta.cc/2jhi8qA     http://conta.cc/2jhi8qA     

If you would like to help with our move, our possibly even parts of our remodeling efforts, please email info@foaonline.org to be put on our volunteer call list.


Thanks for your community support and for the donors who have helped make this happen! 

Friends of Animals named Best Animal Rescue Shelter

We recently received word from the producers of the Hollywood, California based Official Best Of production company that we've been honored as recipients of the Best Animal Rescue Shelter in Minnesota for 2016!

Official Best Of (OBO) provides TV & web viewers with the official best places to visit in America.  Recipients of the distininction receive a fully produced promotional video to use for their organization's marketing purposes.  After all features are produced for the year, they are compiled into a television program.  Features have aired on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and The Discovery Channel.  Additionally, each individual feature is available to view online at www.officialbestof.com.

Save the date!

Spring Rummage Sale is set for Saturday, April 29th! 

Donation Drop off day will be Friday, April 28th.  Due to our limited space and our impending move to our new shelter, we are NOT able to accomodate any early drop offs at the shelter.  Please make arrangements accordingly.  Thank you for understanding!
