I'm so glad I found my Shirley cat. The first time I saw a picture of her face I knew she was the one. I picked her up from a foster mom who also worked for Pet Rescue. She was very helpful and informative about every question I had. She is the sweetest cat I've ever had and is now a very comfortable member of the family and has brought true happiness and joy to our lives.

Be careful this rescue organization is all about moving animals and does not care about proper placement. They instead care more about the money coming in from the fee than the right fit or proper home for the animals.

If you complain the animal isn't a fit or what they stated about the animal was not true they will happily take back the animal without any help to find a family pet that is the right fit.

Beware or you will be pet-less and money-less too, as the adoption fee will not go towards the right animal it's just gone.

I thought TCPR was great when I was looking to add to my family a couple years ago. I fostered a cat and ended up adopting him. My circumstances have changed and will be moving to a home that has a dog. The cat I adopted tolerates the dog alright, but my first kitty does not and I will not be able to have her move with me. I have tried every avenue to find a new home for her, even TCPR. I filled out their online pet surrender form and received a message that someone would respond within 72 hours. That was over a week ago. I tried contacting someone by going through Facebook, but still no one responds. It's obvious they are wonderful to those wanting a pet from them, but give no support to the adoptive family once the pet is out their door.

Luli (previously Quinley) has been the most amazing addition to our family! TCPR did great with her shes so comfortable around everyone. She is so fun and always knows how to make everyone smile. We love her so much and can’t wait for many more years to come!

We adopted our Merlin(formerly Jack) a little over a week before Christmas 2017. He's been the best little man(or Dude) on the planet! My wife saw him at a Bentley's Pet Stuff- Edina and immediately texted me. We knew immediately that we needed to adopt him. Being in Duluth I filled out the application and sent it in. Within 36 hours we heard back stating that even though we were in Duluth(2.5 hours away) our application had been accepted. The following day I had filled out all the paperwork and payed the adoption fee, and 2 days later I drove down to get our little boy. He's been a joy to have. He plays with our 14yr old cat, and has learned a lot from him(he has even made our 14yr old cat a little more lively)!

We took our time hunting for the 3rd member of our family, and when we found Paulie through TCPR, we knew we had found our cat!

Paulie has brought so much joy, love and cuddles to our little family. She greats us by the door every afternoon, eager to give us 'welcome home' leg rubs, quickly followed by a request for play-time! She loves playing with her toys to show off her hunting skills. One of her favorite spots to rest is her little basket on the radiator near our couch, so she can snooze and stay warm, while keeping us within eye-site. I have never known a more people-oriented cat than Paulie, she follows us around from room to room, and sleeps at the foot of our bed at night. From the moment we met her, we knew she was the perfect cat for us. We are so thankful she has come into our lives, and that our home has become her home.

TCPR was quick to respond through our adoption process, and provided all necessary paperwork (health records, adoption forms, etc.) to make Paulie's transition smooth.

We would definitely recommend them to friends and anyone looking to add a furry family member!

TCPR did a great job preparing our cat for adoption. All the paperwork was in place and the transition went smoothly. Vinnie is settling in and loves the family - even rubs up against our two dogs!

Twin Cities Pet Rescue made adoption easy. I was initially looking for a pair of kittens but ended up adopting a bonded trio. I am so happy I did as the adult male, Grandpa, takes good care of the kittens, Luke and June. TCPR clearly communicated throughout the adoption process and has continued to check in. I appreciate the extra care and recommend this rescue!

Hi! I adopted my new family member in October of 2017.
I wanted to help after seeing pictures of animals displaced from hurricane Harvey.
Joe is his given first name. I gave him a last name "Boy". Joe Boy has been a delightful addition to my family.

Joe Boy loves to be brushed,he enjoys you petting him. He is a good talker and listens very well. Joe Boy puts a smile on my face day and night.
He loves to sleep in bed with me,his favorite spot is at the top of my head.
Joe Boy is a very special cat.

I had the best adoption experience.
I seen Joe on the website in Aug. I knew I wanted him to be a part of my family. I had a bump in the road. "financially "However TCPR worked with me,so that I could adopt Joe.

I would recommend this agency to anyone who wants to adopt/donate.

I adopted my cat - Piper- from TCPR last September and I love her so much! Communication was quick, the application process was simple, and I would 100% recommend adopting from TCPR!

A couple months later, I became a foster with TCPR and had to handle a variety of medical needs - such as ear mites, URI's, and ringworm. It has been such an educational and rewarding experience. I am now on the Cat Team and help out with events, adoptions, fosters, and transportation. The cats I have fostered have come from all over Minnesota, and the kittens I currently have came all the way from Texas due to the hurricane! TCPR truly does incredible things for animals and goes to great lengths to give them the care and love that they need.

I am a volunteer with Twin Cities Pet Rescue and have also done some (temp!) fostering before finally adopting my (amazing) cat from the organization. I can't say enough about how wonderful this group is - the vast majority of the staff and leadership team are volunteers who care deeply about the animals they rescue and take great joy in every dog or cat (or rabbit or .. goat!) for which they rescue and find a furever home. It's amazing to see how hard-working and passionate everyone in the group is about the work that TCPR does, especially since they do it in their free time! Thanks for everything you all do!

My daughter bought Lucy as a birthday present for me. She is a black cat and was having a hard time finding a forever home. Lucy or LuLu as we call her has become the star of our home. My husband really enjoy her and her antics. Thank you so much for helping LuLu till we could come and give her a new home.

I will always be grateful to the caring people at Twin Cities Pet Rescue for bringing Lila into my life. Lila is a sweet, little, middle-aged dog who has been nothing but a joy! She had been through a rough patch but the people at TCPR took such good care of her. They also were super helpful in getting me ready to adopt her. Her foster mom and others were always available to answer questions or offer advice. The people in this organization are knowledgeable, professional, and above-all compassionate care givers!

It had been 4 years since our Bailey died. The boys were really wanting the companionship of another dog. We had been looking online for just a short while before we came across Oliver's picture and the TCPR site. He couldn't have been cuter if he tried! His foster parents (they are amazing) met us near our home at Chuck and Don's for our first introduction with Oliver. They were so patient while we took our time getting to know him! We were so impressed with how much Oliver already knew. Come, sit, down, leave it and he would even whine at the door to go potty! We met Oliver's foster parent again at Chuck and Don's on February 13, this time to bring our boy home. What a wonderful Valentine's weekend we had this year!

I had just finished my last year of college and knew I was ready to start looking for a puppy. After browsing all the animals TCPR had available, I fell in love with Everett (a lab/pitbull mix). I met with his Foster mom and him to make sure it would be a good fit, and then someone from TCPR came to look at my house and make sure he would be taken care of. They genuinely care where they place their animals! Now Everett is the pool boy at my house, and loves to swim and play with my sister's puppy.

Roger came to us from the Twin City Pet Rescue. We love the little guy and he's a great addition to our furry family. I love dogs. Roger is our fourth rescue dog and sixth rescue animal. Working with a rescue is the best way to find a pet.

TCRP does everything right. They provide us with Roger's medical history and continued support since Roger came to live with us. The staff are all volunteers, and they're very knowledgeable. Good advice and guidance has made Roger's transition to his new home easy.

TCPR helped me foster and then adopt a wonderful 2 year old, little 7 pound yorkie mix, Lucy fka Sylvia. Lucy was rescued by this great organization out of a kill shelter in Arkansas. She's just the greatest addition to my home and family. She has a sassy personality and was fully trained when I got her first as a foster dog. When she had been spayed and received all her shots I adopted her. The days she was away were so quiet and I was so glad to get her back permanently within 3 days. She loves all her toys, beds and treats. I couldn't ask for a better pet! Deb, Shakopee, MN

I have adopted two small dogs from TCPR and it was a wonderful experience. Both were fully vetted and had been neutered and dental which is so important for little dogs. There was full disclosure on their past history and behavior issues. Would highly recommend

We have adopted two dogs from TCPR. One was 2.5 years ago and the second was this summer. TCPR was very helpful in guiding the selection of our first adoption dog to fit the dynamic of our current family that included a senior dog of 17 years, the fit was perfect. Then we came to wanting to adopt a second dog, once again TCPR was key in guiding us to find a dog who's personality was conducive to the current dynamic of our furry friends. Another perfect fit! They are professional and very tuned into assisting people to help guide the best personality and level of energy fit. They have all the best intentions for the dog/cat and for the adopting family to have a successful adoption experience. Their love for the animals is clearly of the highest priority. I highly recommend them.
