Our Phones are Currently Not Working

We seem to be experiencing phone problems this morning.  We have reported it and they are working on it.  We will let you know when the phones are back up!  For those of you that have sent messages via our website or facebook page, we are still in the process of construction on our new facility and are not open to the public yet. We are working like crazy to get re-opened!  We will post the information when we have a re-opening date.  Thank you for your patience!

We Have Officially Moved!

We have now completely moved out of our facility in Faribault and are getting set up in our new facility in Northfield.  Our new phone number is 507-664-1035.  Our new address is Prairie’s Edge Humane Society, 680 Professional Drive, Northfield, MN 55057.

We are currently still working on some remodeling at the new facility so we are not open to the public yet.  If you are in need of assistance with an animal please call our Northfield facility at 507-664-1035 and leave a detailed message.  Messages are being checked daily and we will return your call as soon as possible.

Please watch for our opening date in August!

Thank you!

Moving day has arrived!

images[4]Our Northfield facility is almost ready, the Faribault building has been sold and we have scheduled our move!  We will be open to the public for adoptions in our Faribault site on Thursday, July 17th from 1-5 pm with the final day open in that location being Saturday, July 19th from noon – 5 pm for adoptions only.  We will be moving equipment and eventually the animals during the week of July 21st and getting the animals and ourselves situated in the new facility over the next two weeks.  We want the animals to be settled and comfortable in their new “home” before we reopen to the public.  We are trying to keep this move as stress free as possible for the animals that we care for at the shelter.  We do not have an exact date that we will be open to the public for business in our new facility but we are estimating the first week of August.  When we have that date set, we will post it on our website as well as our facebook page.

During this time of transition if you are in need of help with an animal, have found or lost a pet, you can still call our Faribault phone number 507-334-7117 and leave a detailed message.  Messages will be checked on a daily basis with calls being returned as soon as possible.  Once our Faribault phone number is cancelled a forwarding message will be on that number with our new phone number in Northfield.

At this point in time if you are mailing anything to us please begin using our new address: 680 Professional Drive, Northfield, MN 55057.

Thank you for your understanding during this time of transition.  Our foremost concern during this move is the well being of the animals that we care for on a daily basis.  This move will allow them to be cared for in a new, efficient and healthier environment!

Stay tuned for more information on our opening date and activities!
