Animal Rescue Groups

Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (MACC) is committed to finding good homes for all adoptable animals. Animal rescue groups play an important role in the placement of healthy and treatable animals. Each year, MACC places hundreds of animals with our rescue partners.

MACC works with pre-approved rescue groups that undergo a rigorous screening process to ensure safe, responsible placement of our animals. Although we are always looking for rescue groups that take all breeds, MACC will prioritize animal rescue groups that can place pit bulls (bully breeds) and cats.

Please contact the groups directly for available animals.

If you're interested in becoming an approved rescue group, please complete our online Animal Rescue Application.
