Welcome to Minneapolis Animal Care & Control
We are glad you have found our website and eager to share the good news about animals in our city and how we work with residents to create safe and healthy communities for people and animals.
We wanted to share some good news with you about a cat on which we performed surgery. On Thursday, May 2, MACC’s staff veterinarian successfully removed an abscess and serious infection from Yankton, a young adult male cat. Yankton is a cool cat with a lot of personality that is now on the road to recovery. If all goes as planned, Yankton will be transferred to a rescue group in the next few days, pending a medical foster home. His prognosis is excellent.
A during surgery and post-op photo are below. If you would like to learn about ways to help Yankton and others animals in our care, please go to: www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/animals/help
