Adopt MN

Adopt Minnesota! Are you thinking of adopting a pet? Below is a giant list of rescue groups that work their tails off to save every pup they can. Some rescue’s are breed specific and the rest are separated by location.

Underdog Rescue MN posted this photo to Facebook asking for a volunteer to help transport this adorable Pomeranian to his foster home.

This was the moment I first saw Torque (formerly Amos). He is one success story from a local rescue group. Check out his adoption story here.

When I started putting this page together I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of rescues we have here in Minnesota. I asked people on Facebook where they adopted their pets from and I received over 50 comments! Most of them listing at least 2 rescue groups. The outpouring of love for animal rescue is beyond incredible! I did my best to include all of them but I am sure I’ve missed some. No matter what breed, age or size you are looking for, there will always be one available through adoption.
