Please plan on joining us at the animal shelter for our annual "I'm in the Dog House" event from 11am to 2pm. We will be "kenneling" celebrities and average citizens to raise money for the animals at MACC. Our staff and volunteers will be giving tours of the shelter and coordinating the following fun events -- educational booths in our parking lot, face-painting, Ask the Vet, food, and much more. All are welcome!
If you are interested in participating in the fun, please email our event coordinator at Jeanette.Wiedemeier@minneapolismn.gov

Our MISSION is to work with residents to create safe and healthy communities for people and animals.
Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (MACC) receives more than 16,000 field service calls each year. Annually, MACC responds to and investigates approximately 400 animal bite reports, declares 250 aggressive dogs, and ensures compliance of 250 dangerous dogs. In addition, MACC operates a state of the art animal shelter which annually takes in over 4,000 animals. More than 6,000 customers visit the shelter each year. MACC partners with 46 animal rescue groups to send more than 90% of all adoptable pets home. The public come to the animal shelter to retrieve a lost or quarantined animal, pay a citation, purchase a pet license, adopt a pet, turn in a stray animal, and/or register a dangerous animal.
Minneapolis Man Pleads Guilty to Cockfighting Charges
A Minneapolis man has pleaded guilty to cockfighting charges, months after launching a legal fight to win back more than a dozen chickens seized by Minneapolis Animal Care & Control.
Cheng Lor will serve nine days of community service and two years of probation under a plea deal with prosecutors for possessing fighting chickens. Police discovered the animals, several of which were dead, during a January 2014 search of his north Minneapolis home spurred by unrelated allegations that Lor had been dealing marijuana. One dead rooster was found with duct tape on its rounded leg spurs, which city animal control officials said is sometimes used to attach blades during cockfighting. The live roosters also had rounded spurs and scars on their heads.
