About Us

Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary is a small non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing, caring for and placing homeless animals. We promote positive people/animal relationships through our adoption and educational programs advocating humane treatment of all animals, including the importance of spaying and neutering. Some of the animals that come to Rescued Tails are older, sick or have suffered from severe neglect or cruelty. We value the life of each companion animal and provide a permanent safe haven for animals when possible. We work to rehabilitate companion animals that need additional training and time and then place them in appropriate homes.


Our organization is located in Shell Lake, Wisconsin, and we have a few foster homes in Minnesota.

 A special thank you to The Lawson Family Fund and to J & J Hall for helping to make so much possible. 


        The world of animal rescue lost a special friend    

Lynn A. Nybakke (pictured below), Beloved Wife, Mom, Grandma, age 65 of Forest Lake passed away on October 10, 2011. Lynn was dedicated to advocating for homeless pet animals. She served on the Board of Directors of the Ramsey County Humane Society for over 13 years and volunteered at the shelter. She was also a charter member of the Auxiliary and administered the spay, neuter and emergency care program. Lynn was a certified veterinary technician and was employed at Hudson Road Animal Hospital. After moving to Forest Lake in 1997, she became a volunteer with Northwoods Humane Society and eventually co-founded St. Francis of Assisi Animal Rescue. Lynn and her husband Dean have helped support Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary in so many ways over the years. Lynn will be dearly missed by all involved with animal rescue.
