The Beltrami Humane Society is a no-kill animal shelter established in 1977 and located in Bemidji, Minnesota.
The Beltrami Humane Society was established in 1977 by a group of concerned citizens who felt a need for an organization that would provide shelter to homeless animals. We are proud to be a “no-kill” shelter. The “no-kill” policy ensures that we do not euthanize animals on a routine basis in order to make room for other animals.
Since 1977, the Beltrami Humane Society has helped thousands of companion animals with a second chance at life. We are very proud of our efforts to rehome abandoned, surrendered and stray companion animals and the service we provide to our community. Over the past 35 years we have honed our services to provide an even greater quality service for more than 250 animals per year.
The mission statement of the Humane Society is as follows: The Beltrami Humane Society is committed to serving the best interest of the animals we strive to protect.
Our vision statement: The Beltrami Humane Society is dedicated to operating an animal shelter for the purpose of finding a quality forever home for each animal we serve, encouraging a community of responsible companion animal guardians, eliminating the community's need to euthanize dogs and cats as a means of population control, and promoting a society where companion animals become more valued.
Currently, the shelter offers several services including taking in stray or unwanted animals, adopting out animals in need of homes, fostering animals before they can be adopted, providing quality animal care to all animals in our shelter, administering necessary vaccinations, and ensuring all animals in our shelter are spayed or neutered. We also hold several community events throughout the year and have a vibrant volunteer program with over 150 volunteers participating yearly.
