Animal Rescue Application

Thank you for your interest in becoming an approved rescue group. Please contact Supervising Shelter Veterinarian, Dr. Camille McArdle at to request an application and with any additional questions regarding the process of becoming an approved rescue group. Our greatest need is for groups that can care for cats and powerful breed dogs (Pit Bull, Rottweiler, etc.)

Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (or MACC) has a long history of partnering with a variety of animal rescue groups. If we cannot find a pet’s original owner within the mandatory Minnesota Statutory waiting period, we make the animal available to the general public for adoption. If the animal is not readily adopted or if the pet needs specialized care, MACC will make the pet available to rescue groups.
