Thank you to all of our donors and supporters who continue to drive our mission!
Twin Cities Pet Rescue is a foster-home based, companion animal rescue. TCPR rescues animals from local animal control facilities, high kill shelters and code red euthanasia lists, puppy mills or individuals who can no longer care for their pets. Animals stay in foster homes until they find their adoptive family and forever home.
TCPR offers a lifetime of support for our adoptive animals, and we pride ourselves on the comprehensive veterinary care provided for our animals in foster care. In fact, more than 64% of our expenses in 2019 and to-date in 2020 have been in veterinary care alone. Before adoption, all animals are examined by a licensed veterinarian, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and are up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations. Our volunteers take the time to register each microchip to the animal's new family. All dogs are tested for heartworm, and if positive, aren't available for adoption until they have been treated and cleared. All cats are tested for FIV/FeLV. All animals have been prophylactically treated for intestinal parasites. Dogs and cats who require dental cleanings and/or extractions have those services completed before adoption. Animals with other medical needs receive specialist consultations. In all, our goal is to provide comprehensive veterinary care and give our adopters the best picture of the health of their animal upon adoption.
