Gimli & Bombur came to MNPPR when their previous owner & adopter were unable to provide proper care.

Due to our rescue being foster-based, not all foster homes are located in Saint Paul, MN. This animal's foster parent prefers to meet at the Roseville PetSmart - 2480 Fairview Ave N, Roseville, MN 55113 for meet & greets, & adoptions.

Gimli & Bombur have a combined adoption fee of $60

We absolutely DO NOT SHIP ANIMALS! Please do not ask.

A portion of Gimili's care while in rescue has been sponsored by an anonymous donor! If you would like to donate to provide veterinary care, food, bedding, and enrichment for Gimili or other pocket pets in the care of MNPPR, please visit for more information.
