Donate to Carver Scott Humane Society
Carver Scott Humane Society was founded in 1989 with the mission of connecting animals in need with people who care. Our vision is a world where every animal is safe, cared for, and loved. In 2017, we introduced a new, innovative rescue philosophy based on our Four Pillars: TNR, Serve Where You Save, FurKeeps, and Adopters Welcome. Annually, we adopt over 500 dogs and cats into the community every year, with a nationally reported Live Release Rate of 97%. We serve over 1,000 Minnesota pets and their families annually through our surrender prevention program, Fur Keeps, aiming to keep pets out of the shelter system in the first place.
CSHS focuses on serving and saving Minnesota pets. We do our best to prevent surrender, which creates capacity for us to transfer most of our animals from high-volume impounds and shelters throughout the state. For the past three years, we have transferred more animals from Minneapolis Animal Care & Control than any other animal welfare organization.
While we are primarily a foster-based animal rescue, we do have a cat adoption space at our Adoption & Wellness Center in Chaska. We also partner with local retail locations like PetSmart Richfield and Chuck & Don's Chanhassen in the spirit of our Adopters Welcome Pillar to remove the barriers to adoption and increase the chances for cats to be find their forever homes through same-day adoptions.
