Who We Are.
The Rescue Crew is a Minnesota-based nonprofit animal rescue organization which strives to prevent the unnecessary euthanasia of companion animals by finding them loving forever homes. We were created specifically to help fill a need in the local rescue community for shelter animals facing imminent risk of euthanasia without rescue support.
We are here to help save the lives of companion animals in need. Those who are homeless; the abused or abandoned; the neglected and unloved, and to show them human compassion and kindness, ultimately helping them become valued family members in a loving home.
We envision the day where every adoptable companion animal has the opportunity of finding a responsible, loving home. A world where pets are no longer mistreated, abused or abandoned.
Why We Do What We Do.
More than 6 million unwanted, abandoned or lost animals enter shelters across the country every year. It's true... And of these animals, one 15.8% of dogs and a mere 2% of cats entering these shelters are reunited with their owners. While some of the remaining are lucky enough to be adopted into loving, responsible homes, there are far more animals in need of a family than there are kind people willing to foster and adopt them. That's why we're here - to help those animals unfortunate enough to find themselves in a shelter environment and needing the help of a rescue. While we will rescue companion animals of all sizes, ages, breeds and conditions, The Rescue Crew will always maintain a focus on helping one of the least adopted and most euthanized breeds in the country - the "pit bull-type" dog or "bully breed".
WE EXIST SOLELY ON DONATIONS. Without the generous donations of our supporters, The Rescue Crew would not be able to help the urgent animals who need us.
