About Marshmallow Animal Shelter:
Marshmallow Animal Shelter was established as a 501(c) (3) non-profit animal shelter in 2008 in honor of ‘Cocoa’ and her ‘Eleven Marshmallows’. Cocoa was a Labrador mom that had been abandoned and locked in a house for 3 weeks before being rescued by a Sheriff in Iowa. Being obviously pregnant, Cocoa was taken to a local veterinarian and with the generosity and compassion of many people, she came to rest in Minnesota at the Livingston-Wiedewitsch home and went on to whelp an astonishing eleven (marshmallow) puppies. All puppies were adopted into loving homes but there are many more animals each day that need our help! The ultimate goal is to improve animal welfare and increase public awareness and actively promote spay and neuter programs. The animal shelter provides impound services for seven area cities, providing a public resource for stray, abandoned, and rescued companion animals.

The shelter serves the cities of Audubon, Callaway, Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Lake Park, Waubun and Mahnomen.
