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!

Meet one of my favorites. His name is Razor. He is a Chow/Lab mixed with clown and goof ball. He has been with us since 11-27-13 when his owner passed away. He came in with a lab pup and he did fine , however, we have not had much success mixing Razor with other dogs. He loves humans and children. Razor is a very loyal guy, who is playful, and obedient, and really has a sense of humor. THE OTHER issue with him is, He kills things, rodents, birds, mice. This guy has even gotten a weasel that made the mistake of going into his kennel. On the plus side, one day when playing with Razor, he lined up about 3 dead mice he stashed and offered them as gifts to me! 
I really love this goof ball and he is SO deserving of finding a great home. There must be some woodys person out there with no other dogs who wants rodent control? They would have an amazing companion. So , if you know of anyone fitting that description, please pass it on , Lets find this boy his forever home. THANKS, Tweetie.
Due to the extreme fire conditions, we are looking for people to sign up incase of emergency evacuations. Do you have a horse trailer or stock trailer and would be agreeable to help evacuate animals? Please sign up with your name , number , and location at girfish@gmail.com. We will be making and manning lists if (hopefully we wont need you) and calling you if a situation occurs. Thanks...Contented Critters.

These three (13 week old) pups were found in a box along side of the highway. They are now up for adoption at our shelter. These girls are so loving friendly and playful. They just want an owner who is a little kinder and more responsible than the one they started life with. It never ceases to amaze me on how truly cruel humans can be, these girls are ready to forgive and forget and get on with a happy life.
