Rescue and Placement Service

Gentle Touch is a 501(c) 3 non-profit animal rescue and placement organization. We depend on the support of the public to help feed and care for our animals. The adoption fee charged for an animal only covers the basic costs of vet examination, sterilization, heartworm and FeLV tests, vaccinations, and parasite treatment. Other illnesses that can arise may become very expensive to treat. For these special cases we depend on private donations.  

Do you have a car you no longer need or use? Then Gentle Touch could use your help. The donation of your car is tax deductible. Just visit and click on Animal Services. When you come to Gentle Touch Animal Sanctuary just click and they will do the rest.  It's that simple!  

If you wish to make a monetary donation, you can mail your tax-deductible check to PO Box 11327, Minneapolis, MN  55411 MN 55411. Or you can use PayPal, and make a donation by check or credit card, by clicking on the ’Make a Donation’ button at the upper left of the web page.   

We also need other donated items. These include bleach, dish detergent, disinfectant,  litter, canned food,(Friskies), dry food (Proplan cat and kitten), light bulbs, paper towels, plastic spoons, laundry detergent, mops, brooms, glass cleaner, hand sanitizer, cat toys, dog toys, cat beds, 13 gallon garbage bags, newspapers, bottled water, small paper plates or trays, latex gloves, and Lysol spray.  

Our foster homes are always in need of litter, dry food (Cat Chow) and canned food (Friskies).

We would like to say thank you to all of you who have donated to help our cause,  your caring and kindness is much appreciated!

While most of the animals coming into GTAS are only with us for a short while until they find their new homes we do take in some that require much more medical care.  These little ones can be with us for months just trying to get them healthy enough to be placed.  This is where the true heart of rescue is seen.  Some come to us broken mentally and physically and their road is a hard one.  Our hearts are touched by each animal that enters GTAS, but there are some that we will always remember as being pretty special.  

The elderly, sick, and less adoptable animals live at Gentle Touch Farm where they can live out their lives in peace and comfort.
