About Us


Donations Needed!

We really appreciate donations.  However, needs may differ throughout the seasons.  Before bringing in donations, please call MACC (612-673-3000) to learn our current needs.  Thank you for your support.

Adopting A Friend

To adopt a pet from MACC, you must:

  • Complete an application
  • Pay an adoption fee
  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have a current picture identification that shows your age and current address
  • Purchase a pet license if a resident of the City of Minneapolis
  • Commit to behavior training, providing medical care, and giving humane treatment and companionship throughout the life of the animal
  • Check your lease to be sure you can have pets and that there are no size, weight, or breed limitations.

MACC reserves the right to deny any adoption application.  MACC does not hold animals and adopts on a first come, first serve basis.  No partial payments or down payments are accepted.  Although all animals are given an exam prior to becoming available for adoption, MACC cannot guarantee that these animals have not been exposed to an illness prior to coming to our shelter.

Cats and Dogs

The adoption fee for dogs/puppies range from $110-250 plus tax and $60-175 plus tax for cats/kittens.  Minneapolis residents must license their pet at the time of adoption.  Dogs are given the distemper combination vaccine, bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine and rabies vaccine; cats are vaccinated for feline distemper and rabies.  Both dogs and cats are given a single dose of worming medication and are sterilized prior to adoption.

Small Pets for Adoption

MACC sometimes has animals other than dogs and cats available for adoption, including rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, birds, and fish.  Adoption fees for small animals range from $3 to $50.

Who We Are

Minneapolis Animal Care and Control is a municipal animal control facility that serves the City of Minneapolis.  Minneapolis animal control officers respond to bites, incidents, animal welfare calls, abandoned animals, dogs running loose, neglect, dog fighting, and much more.  We also work very hard to find animals new homes.  We work with 45 rescue groups to place the animals that are not adopted at our facility.
