If you have an adoption story you would like to share, email story and photos here:


I have adopted three dogs from the shelter since I moved to Park Rapids.  The first was Rex, Lab X, who was a puppy when I got him.  He now weighs 92 lbs and is a great trail dog for horse rides.  The next was Bixby, Maltese X, who turned out to be a devoted dog to my grandson.  The last was Gunner, formerly known as Guydo, who has become Rex's best play buddy.  All three are great dogs and have formed a family.  One of their favorite activities is napping on the couch by the window.

Thanks to all the staff at the Headwaters Animal Shelter for taking such good care of the homeless dogs so they can find forever homes.
