$5,000 Goal

Twin Cities Pet Rescue has operated entirely as a foster-based rescue for nearly 14 years, successfully placing thousands of animals into loving homes across the Twin Cities metro area.

We pride ourselves in the lifetime support for our adoptive animals along with the comprehensive care provided to the animals while in foster care. With the cost of care and number of cats and dogs in need increasing, we are in need of more help than ever before.

All donations go towards helping us rescue more cats and dogs along with continuing to guarantee the high quality of care to animals who desperately need it.

Why Should you Support TCPR?

Twin Cities Pet Rescue is a foster 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.

TCPR prides ourselves in the comprehensive veterinary care provided for our animals while in foster care, which includes: 

  1. Examination by a licensed veterinarian
  2. Spayed/neutered
  3. Microchipped (which will be registered to the animal's forever family)
  4. Vaccinations
  5. Dogs are tested for heartworm, and treated prior to adoption if needed
  6. Cats are tested for FIV/FeLV
  7. All animals have been prophylactically treated for intestinal parasites
  8. Any other medical needs receive specialist consultations including diagnostics testing, prescription or specialty diets, medication, dental care, and many other services.

We provide the most comprehensive veterinary care to give our adopters the best picture of the health of their animal upon adoption. Check out the TCPR standard of veterinary care for cats and dogs below.

2023 Summary

TCPR has had a very successful year thanks to all of the support from our volunteers, fosters, sponsors and everyone who has donated. So far this year we have...

Had 51 people sign up to foster with us so far (in addition to our amazing previous fosters). 

Adopted out 72 dogs and 358 cats and taken in 87 dogs and 453 cats. Take a look at how that compares to the last two years:

We have been able to accomplish these amazing feats with the help of our new and old adoption partners, which include: Cafe Meow - New Hope, Petco Highland Park, Petco Stillwater, Petco Eden Prairie, Petco Burnsville, and Uptown Chuck and Don's.

2024 Goals

We are hoping to raise $5,000 for Give to the Max 2023. This money will help us continue to be able to take cats and dogs into our care and on their way to living their best lives.

Thank you to all of our volunteers, fosters, adopters, sponsors, and everyone who donates. Every dollar helps!
