All adoptions are being done by appointment only at this time. All appointments are made in the order we receive the request. Call 612-673-6222 to request an appointment to ensure the quickest response.

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.
