If you can help out, we will have a dog that works for you

Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Minneapolis – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.

Minneapolis Animal Care and Control has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in Minneapolis, MN.

Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (MACC) is a full-service shelter. In 2015 1,291 animals were adopted to good homes last year or were transferred to rescue groups. In all, roughly 4,000 animals or more come to Minneapolis Animal Care & Control every year. By law, we keep all stray dogs and cats at least five (5) days to allow their owners to search and reclaim them. However, if the original owner is not found, animals are made available for adoption to new homes.
