Our featured pet is... Nymeria! Nym was taped into a cardboard box with her newborn kittens and left on the side of a back road. A good Samaritan found the box and the feline family eventually ended up here. Nym is estimated to be 3 years old, and she will be ready for a new home after her kittens are weaned (in mid-May). She's great with kids, and would enjoy a home where she can be smothered in attention. Please visit Nymeria's page in Our Adoptable Pets List.

We're on Facebook!
We have a 100% placement rate. I do not believe that any animal should be killed just because it runs out of time. These rescues will stay with us until they are placed in a permanent home or with a no-kill breed rescue (when appropriate). We will only euthanize an animal if it is in severe and un-treatable pain, is injured beyond repair, has no quality of life, or is a danger to people or animals.
We do not have the resources to take in stray animals. If you have found a stray, please contact your local animal control.
All microchips will remain in our name. No exceptions.
Did you find a face here that just tugs at your heartstrings? Want to help, but can't adopt? Become a sponsor!
A sponsor is someone who wants to send a donation to a specific pet to help with their bills. Sponsors help bring adoption fees down by helping to cover some of the expenses involved in veterinary care. You pick the pet, and the amount you want to donate.
A pet can have as many sponsors as there are people willing to donate. If there are enough sponsors to pay all of the vet bills, it will be noted on that pet's page, and future sponsor donations will go toward food, toys, and treats for that pet. There will still be a small adoption fee for fully funded pets.
We're always looking for more foster homes! If you'd like to foster animals for Silver Dragon Pets, please read through our Foster Agreement. We only work with foster homes in Minnesota!

We do have a surrender application available. We use this application to make sure that we have proper accommodations available, and to give us some background on each animal. Please note that a surrender statement is also required at the time of surrender for all incoming pets.
We often have a waiting list, and are usually running at full capacity. Please understand that if you want to surrender your pet here, you may have to wait until a space opens up.
Animals left on the doorstep, tied in the yard, or otherwise abandoned here will be turned over to animal control as strays. Please do not just dump your pet; you won't be doing anyone a favor and you may put your animal(s) at risk of euthanasia at the local shelter.
