Contented Critters ( formerly "S N A P Spay Neuter Aid Program") is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit (EIN: 41-1835418, License: MN140872) no-kill animal shelter, located in northern Minnesota, dedicated to finding homes for the abused, unwanted, and abandoned animals of St. Louis County and beyond. All donations go directly toward benefitting the animals in our care.

Mission and Vision

The mission of Contented Critters is to advocate for and help pets in need through rescue, no-kill sheltering, rehabilitation, appropriate veterinary care, and adoption. Our vision is to reduce the community need for pet rescue through preemptive measures, such as a spay and neuter program for pets in our care, and community outreach and education.


Contented Critters Animal Shelter, our single largest project, is a no-kill sanctuary. The sanctuary is located on over 50 acres of land in Makinen, Minnesota.

Contented Critters adopts about 20-25 pets each month on average, and has provided aid to the adopting families for spaying and neutering costs as needed. We are in desperate need of a larger facility, as we have been forced to turn away literally hundreds of animals each year due to being filled to capacity. It is our goal to continue building this shelter until we never have to turn another animal away to an uncertain destiny due to capacity constraints. Without the help of our spay/neuter program, many of these animals will continue to breed, causing further overpopulation within St. Louis County.
