Thank you for your interest in making a donation to MACC. Our current needs include:
When animals are brought to the Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (MACC), we do not turn them away. In fact, nearly 4,000 animals will be cared for this year by our staff, veterinarians, and volunteers.
MACC is supported by the city's general revenue fund and must compete for limited resources with other important city services, including the Police and Fire Departments. With your help, MACC can continue to improve and expand our operations and programs for needy animals in our community.
Please consider an online donation today. Your donation may be tax deductible; please check with your tax advisor.
