Mission Statement

The Carver-Scott Humane Society is a foster-based 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue incorporated in March of 1989. Our mission is to connect animals in need with people who care. In addition to our foster homes, we have a Cat Adoption Center in our offices in downtown Chaska, MN.


Carver-Scott Humane Society is a foster-based animal rescue that places over 500 animals a year in the homes of loving adopters. With 4 full time staff and 1 part time staff, our team of nearly 100 volunteers are critical to our success.

CSHS has developed a cutting-edge, holistic approach to rescue that involves four pillars:

Trap Neuter Return

Serve Where You Save

Surrender Prevention

Adopters Welcome.

If you are interested in volunteering but do not see a position specific to your needs, we encourage you to contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@carverscotths.org or complete our online Volunteer Application.

CSHS embraces a four-pillar, holistic approach to rescue with the ultimate goal to realize our vision - a world where every animal is safe, cared for and loved.
