Donate Today

Thank you for your interest in making a donation to MACC. Our current needs include:

Financial Donations

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.

Food and Enrichment Items for Dogs and Cats

MACC feeds our animals a specific diet and would very much appreciate donations of the following food:

Dogs - Purina ProPlan Select Chicken and Brown Rice (dry)

Cats - Purina ProPlan Chicken and Rice (dry)  

Veterinary Products and Supplies

All donated items must be unopened and not expired (we will accept a donation if the outer box is opened, but the inner foil packaging is still intact). Common donations include:
