Adopt a Dog or Puppy!

Thank you for looking at our available dogs!

This web page is a direct feed from our adoption system. That means as soon as a new dog or puppy arrives and is processed for adoption, they immediately appear on this page! At times you may need to scroll to see all of the available dogs. When you view an individual dog's profile you may also need to scroll to see all of the content.

You may place a deposit on any of these dogs by phone or in the shelter, call 320-252-0896.

NEW TO TCHS: If you are planning to adopt a dog from TCHS (or have recently adopted one), please ask a TCHS staff member about the GoodPup ONLINE training program! TCHS is excited to partner with GoodPup on this opportunity for customized, affordable, positive virtual dog training that you can do from the comfort of your home!

  • Pre-Adoption Questionnaire

    To ensure your adoption is in the best interest of both you and your pet, we ask that you answer a few questions. Please only fill out this questionnaire if you currently have an appointment scheduled to view animals and note your appointment date and time in the “comments” field.

    This is designed to help limit your time in the shelter and help us practice physical distancing.


    If you do not have an appointment set or would like to place a deposit on a specific animal, please call 320-252-0896.

  • Learn more about deposits

    Animals are adopted quickly from Tri-County Humane Society, so we advise you to call us if you find an animal you are interested in to place a travel hold or deposit on them. To place a deposit on a pet, call us at (320) 252-0896 and have your Visa, Discover or Mastercard ready.

    Deposit: Deposits will hold animals for two full businesses days to give you a chance to come and meet them. There is a $20 non-refundable fee associated with this service, although if you choose to adopt the pet upon meeting it, this $20 will go towards the pet’s adoption fee. 

    2nd Deposit: If an animal you are interested in already has a deposit, you may place a second deposit on the animal. In the case that the first deposit falls through, you will be next in line to have the opportunity to adopt this pet and will have two business days from the time we notify you to come and adopt your pet. A $20 non-refundable fee still applies, even if the person with the first deposit decides to adopt the pet.
