Adoption Policies


Red Lake Rosie’s Rescue is committed to rehoming stray and surrendered animals. We do not have adoption services at the shelter.

RLRR does have a small group of volunteers in the Twin Cities that foster puppies, kittens, and special needs animals. If you are interested in learning more, contact us at Or, check for animals currently available for adoption at

Most of our animals are placed into loving homes through our rescue partners. If you are interested in adopting a Red Lake dog or cat, check with our rescue partners for available animals.
