Our Partners

We choose to partner with the businesses we do because they are small, local, honest companies or non-profits. Find out a little more about the rescues we work with, where we get our food and beverages along with other providers we work with.

Shelter Partners

No Kitten Left Behind-MN was founded in 2009 by two friends who set out to help a colony of cats near Annandale, MN. We have since grown to help countless others through rescue, education and assistance with a variety of other needs.
We are a small, all-volunteer, foster based, no-kill rescue dedicated to helping cats and kittens in need. We provide them with any necessary medical care and adopt them into caring and life-long homes. Our rescue provides a stable, loving environment in which these gentle animals can be cared for until we find their forever homes.

Pet Project Rescue (PPR) is a local, foster based, non-profit organization focusing on rescue and re-homing of dogs and cats, from Minneapolis to Mexico. PPR believes that all animals deserve a loving and safe life, with part of this mission focusing on PPR’s hospice program for terminally ill dogs and cats. In order to fully provide for animals in need, PPR created a Twin Cities Trap-Neuter-Return and Feral Cat Placement program to help street cats in our community, while also reducing the homeless-animal population at its source through intensive spay/neuter programming.

Animal Ark is a Minnesota-based animal welfare organization. We embrace and follow a no kill philosophy in our work to rescue, rehabilitate, & rehome 800 of Minnesota’s lost and homeless companion animals every year. Animal Ark Shelter, located in Hastings, Minnesota, operates as the heart of the rescue effort, while the Thrift Store in St. Paul provides an enjoyable shopping experience, crucial support for the shelter, and community involvement. Founded in 1977, Animal Ark is a 501(c) 3 non-profit Minnesota corporation.

Minnesota Animal Rescue is proud to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operating out of Farmington, Minnesota. We are committed to lowering the euthanasia rates in the Twin Cities, the state of Minnesota, and the entire Midwest. By rescuing animals placed on the euthanasia list at local shelters and impounds, we are helping pave the way to make the world a better place for the most vulnerable animals.

Through the support of our community, we are able to save the lives of animals who were once deemed unfit to live. With our comprehensive rehabilitation programs involving behavioral and medical support, Minnesota Animal Rescue continues to give even the most unrescuable animals the best life possible. Most of our rescues come from the euthanasia list, however, we do often take in extreme medical cases, as well as animals who have fallen victim of cruelty, abuse, or natural disasters.

Ruff Start Rescue is a foster home-based Non Profit 501c3, No-Kill dog and cat rescue based in Central Minnesota. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats as well as ferrets, guinea pigs and rabbits. We work very hard to place them in new loving homes.

This group could not survive without our wonderful volunteers who spend countless hours devoting time to save lives.
