Green Acres Animal Rescue is an animal rescue located in Saint Augusta, MN. We established in February 2020 and are a nonprofit 501c3 organization. We believe that animals are a lot like children in the fact that they look to their “parent” to feed them, provide shelter, medical care, a warm place to sleep and time to play. Animals may not be able to talk but a person can tell their emotions by their behavior and actions. It is important for us to be able to provide abandoned, neglected, abused, elderly and animals involved in a disaster or temporary tragedy with a safe environment where they can receive the treatment and care they deserve and hopefully find their “FUR-EVER home”.

We believe that there is a reason behind all animal aggression and ailments. We are willing to work with them and provide the care and training necessary to ensure these animals have a happy and meaningful life. All our pets will be spayed/neutered and given appropriate vaccinations and any testing/medication necessary before being sent home to their new owner.

Our shelter’s mission is to provide a second chance to animals and humans alike. The bond between human and animal is like no other.
