MN Pocket Pet Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer run, foster based organization committed to the rescue and adoption of small animals in Minnesota. We rescue and find good homes for the following 11 species: chinchillas, rats, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, mice, gerbils, hamsters, degus, sugar gliders and hedgehogs.
As a rescue, we place a great deal of importance on educating the public. Through education, people learn which pocket pets are appropriate for them, what supplies are needed, proper handling, and useful tips and tricks to ensure happiness and safety for both the owner and their pocket pet. We believe that by placing an emphasis on education, we can help prevent animals from being re-homed and keep people and pets together!
We have worked hard on developing our Trust Training Program which brings shy, traumatized and even aggressive animals out of their shells and into happy, healthy lives.
We rely 100% on individual donations from the public, which go towards veterinary care, food, habitats and all other necessary supplies for the pocket pets we take in.
