Contented Critters  "no kill"  animal sanctuary is located in Makinen, Minnesota. 
We are a volunteer run organization that is 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 health, until suitable loving homes can be found for them.

 No cat or dog leaves Contented Critters without being spayed or neutered!

This is Ernestine. She was rescued along with a Donkey, goats, peacocks,  and Chihuahuas and a MinPin. Ernestines' hooves are some of the worse I have witnessed. The little Mini Donkey protects her with a lot of heart. They are a very bonded pair. We have started the process of trimming her hooves. This will take a while and not sure they will ever be "right" again, but it was obviously a relief with what has been done already. Feel free to make a donation to help with the cost of repairing these poor girls. 
    PLEASE TAKE NOTE THAT CONTENTED CRITTERS NO LONGER HAS A P.O.BOX NUMBER. ANY MAIL OR CONTACTS NEED TO BE SENT TO 4986 TOWNLINE RD MAKINEN MN 55763
I am going to use this space to let you all know that Faye is in the hospital and is very ill. We are all working hard to hold the fort down during her absence. So if you call and get no answer it is probably that we are outside tending to the critters and sometimes do not hear the phone. Please leave a message and or call us back. It is best if you can call and make an appointment at this time to view any pets. And of course it wouldn't hurt to keep Faye in your thoughts and prayers. 
Thank you all for being understanding during a very difficult time for all of us at the shelter. The work and the worry never seem to end, the silver lining? Neither does the love.
