Do you have room for one more at your Thanksgiving dinner? Minneapolis Animal Care & Control is waiving adoption fees for all pets, all day Friday, Nov. 22. Help clear the shelter and get all adoptable animals into homes before the holiday! The shelter is open 1-6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22. Adoption fees for all animals are waived this day. Minneapolis residents must purchase a City pet license. Adoption details
- Adopters must meet and spend time with the animal they want to adopt before completing adoption paperwork.
- Adoptions are first-come, first-serve. If multiple adopters at the shelter at the same time are interested in the same animal, there will be a drawing for approved applicants to determine who gets to adopt. Arriving before the shelter opens does not count as being first.
- Adoption paperwork will not be started after 5:30 p.m.
- Cats must leave in a carrier. You can bring a carrier or purchase a cardboard transport box at the shelter.
- Dogs must leave on a leash. You can bring a leash and collar, or the shelter will provide a slip lead.
