RLRR has a permanent shelter located on the western boundary of the reservation 18 miles from the nearest town.
The shelter has 22 outdoor kennels for dogs and an indoor facility for cats and very young puppies.
The kennels each have a sheltered area filled with straw to help keep the animals warm in the bitterly cold winters of northern Minnesota.
Each day, the animals are let out to exercise and socialize with each other.
After a stay at the shelter, all of the animals are transported to the Twin Cities for fostering and adoption.
