MN Pocket Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization primarily serving the Twin Cities Metro Area, focusing on education and public outreach. Our intent is to keep all animals in their homes, with their families, whenever possible. We are committed to rescuing those pocket pets that are in jeopardy of being euthanized or are in danger of being abused, left unattended or in other types of vulnerable situations. We ensure all animals receive proper veterinary care, medication and special training for any behavioral issues, as well as to arrange safe, temporary homes for these animals until stable forever homes can be found. Our team is made up of enthusiastic volunteers who work passionately to serve the underrepresented and often misunderstood niche of pocket pets in the overall rescue community and general public.
MNPPR strives to find the perfect home for each of our foster pets, which means ensuring that they will have an equipped and safe new environment. Just follow the instructions below to get started and we hope to add you to our family soon! Don't hesitate to email us with any questions you might have.
1. Fill out an adoption application on our website (http://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/adoption-application). Be sure to do lots of research on the species you'd like to adopt before filling out your application! You can check out our care guides here (http://www.mnpocketpetrescue.org/care-guides).
2. We review your application and email you to let you know if you have been approved and to set up a meet and greet between you and your potential new pets.
3. After the meet and greet, we will email you to discuss how it went and if we are to move forward with the adoption process. If so, we will have you email us a photo of the habitat or cage you will be housing your new pet in, including furnishings. Sometimes we do require a home visit but this is on a case by case basis. Housing guidelines and links to recommended cages are listed on each species care guide page. Be sure to review this prior to purchasing a habitat for your new pets.
?4. We review your habitat or cage photos and email you to let you know if they are approved. If not approved, we will provide suggestions in order to better the habitat.
?5. Our adoption coordinator will contact you to let you know whether you have final approval. If so, you then complete the adoption contract and arrange a time for you to pick up your new pets!?
6. When you go pick up your new pets, be sure to bring a secure carrier to take them home in. You will need to have the habitat set up and all the supplies ready. We do not send home any supplies with adopted animals.
