Animal Control’s refreshed website makes it easier to find an adoptable or lost pet

Minneapolis Animal Care & Control has launched a refreshed version of its website that makes it easier than ever to find a new pet or look for a lost pet. The site now shows photos and lists short descriptions of all dogs, cats and small animals that are either lost or available for adoption from the shelter. This section of the website is updated in real time so folks can check the website before making a visit to the shelter.

The website also features a fresh new look and more user-friendly navigation, making it easier for people to license their pets, report an animal problem, and learn more about all the services that Minneapolis Animal Care & Control provides.

Minneapolis Animal Care & Control operates a state-of-the-art animal shelter that takes in more than 4,000 animals each year. In 2012, Minneapolis Animal Care & Control sent more than 90 percent of all adoptable pets home in 2012 thanks in part to its partnership with 46 pet rescue organizations.
