The Blue Earth Nicollet County Humane Society was established in 1969. Each year, BENCHS cares for hundreds of homeless, injured, abandoned, and abused animals. Staff can also provide guidance about pet behavior and training to develop informed and caring pet guardians.
BENCHS is a nonprofit organization and does not receive city funding or support from national animal welfare or humane associations. The shelter operates with limited paid staff, and relies on the generosity of donors and volunteers to maintain quality care for the pets it accepts and places.
BENCHS accepts animals from Blue Earth and Nicollet Counties, the Mankato Animal Impound, and the Blue Earth County Impound. Every month, about 50 animals are brought to the shelter. BENCHS is a no-kill shelter. We treat and care for all animals until they are adopted.(507) 625-6373
