Welcome to Happy Hauer Sanctuary

(A program of St. Francis of Assisi Animal Rescue)

The mission of Happy Hauer Sanctuary is to provide a safe place for all animals great and small that are in need of either temporary or permanent housing. A place where they can rest, heal and receive medical attention if needePot Bellyd. The goal of Happy Hauer Sanctuary is to find permanent, loving forever homes for these animals but until that happens they are welcome to stay indefinitely.
Happy Hauer Sanctuary is a program of St. Francis Animal Rescue. It is located on 4.5 acres of land in Linwood, MN. The Sanctuary works closely with local veterinarians and other animal professionals to maintain the health of the animals and provide medical attention as needed. The Sanctuary is also involved with several spay/neuter groups that provide low cost sterilization for feral and barn cats. These clinics are often held at the Sanctuary where the animals can also be assessed for placement. Animals that are adoptable are placed with rescue groups as openings become available. The caretakers of sterilized cats that will be returning to farms are educated on the animals continuing care.
Through generous donations of food and produce from local vendors the Sanctuary is able to offset the cost of feeding the animals in their care.

Monetary donations are an extremely valuable way to help the sanctuary. Donations can be made by check (payable to St. Francis Animal Rescue with Happy Hauer Sanctuary added in the memo area) and mailed to:
