Animals on our dashboard

We maintain a list of dogs and cats that were found dead within the last 30 days. Some were severely hurt or sick when we found them and needed to be put down.

If you are missing a dog or a cat

Check these dashboard details:

  • Pickup date
  • Pickup location
  • Animal description

If you find a likely match:

  1. Call Minneapolis Care & Control.
  2. Give us the dashboard ID of the likely match.
  3. We will explain the next steps.
