  Hermann

Hermann is a tabby orange and white Domestic Short Hair who is 7 years old. He came to us from a previous home and is now looking for his new loving family! Hermann is a sweet boy who loves to give kisses and cuddle. He would like nothing more than to lounge around all day long with his favorite people by his side. His previous owner says that he likes to play with toys and is very smart! He will be neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated by the time of adoption.

Are you interested in getting involved in decision making? The MN DNR is looking for volunteers to join the citizen agency work groups to help decide how to manage issues. 

5 separate groups have been made to support fish species. Catfish, Walleye, Northern Pike, Musky, and Bass.

Applications are open!
