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.

We got our puppy Cobalt from TCPR back in late June 2020 and only have great things to say about them! They were very professional the whole way through. They were diligent with his medical records, and communication. We really enjoyed how the home tour (done by LaToshia) was more of a learning experience and didn't feel pressure or judged. We have kept in contact with the folks over there even after the adoption to share pictures and to keep an eye out for a friend for Cobalt. We would recommend rescuing from TCPR!

Thanks guys!!

TCPR prides themselves on being animal matchmakers, but ultimately they do not put nearly as much thought and attention into animal placement as they should. They also selfishly refused me the opportunity to adopt my foster animal for frivolous reasons, then never posted the animal for adoption. (Clearly one of the staff kept the animal for themselves). Ultimately they aren’t interested in helping you as an animal foster and aren’t looking out for the animal’s best interests. Very disappointed in the management, communication and overall behavior of the TCPR leadership.

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.

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!

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!

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

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.

My adoption of my puppy went very smoothly. We had done concerns with the puppy early on after picking her up but TCPR got us in to see the vet quickly and our concerns turns out to be something that is a pretty common thing in spayed dogs. Communication could have been better both in response time and clarity, but all in all we are very happy with our baby and thankful TCPR gave us the opportunity to make this addition our family.

I first became aware of TCPR in 2011. I'd recently lost a senior cat, and I was ready to get a buddy for my lonely guy at home. I fell in love with Bear from his picture, kept going back to it after looking at hundreds of cats on Petfinder. I was able to meet him at an adoption event near my house. Soon after, I started to foster for them, and now I volunteer at events. I love TCPR because they will take all kinds of animals, all breeds of dogs, and animals that need work behaviorally or need expensive/time consuming medical care. They are a very dedicated group of people. I know exactly where my donations go. It may seem like the long application and/or home visit is a little much, but TCPR wants to make absolutely sure that the new home is the right fit for the animal. The animal is the #1 priority.

I have adopted from, fostered through, and volunteered with Twin Cities Pet Rescue, and I can't say enough wonderful things about this organization. I continue to be impressed with the level of care provided to each and every animal rescued. TCPR has worked hard to develop strong relationships with several local veterinary clinics to ensure that each animal is provided with an excellent level of care, despite the complexity. Beyond that, every TCPR foster is extremely dedicated to his/her foster animal and provides endless love and support throughout the animal's rehabilitation. I highly recommend TCPR to anyone and everyone looking to adopt, foster, or volunteer.

I have volunteered with animal rescue organizations for over 10 years. I have to say that Twin Cities Pet Rescue far exceeds my expectations and is one of the best animal rescue organizations with which I've been involved. TCPR is unique in that it rescues animals that many organizations overlook because they are too old, too sick, or would cost too much money. TCPR is known for pulling animals that need expensive specialty surgeries or emergency veterinary care. The executive director provides nothing but the best care for all of its animals no matter the cost; yet, she is still determined to keep adoption fees low to ensure that these animals can find forever homes. One of my favorite things about TCPR is that its main goal is to find the right home for the animal instead of striving to place as many animals as possible. This is why TCPR has a less than 1% return rate on its adopted animals. During my time with TCPR I have fostered countless animals, volunteered at many events, and adopted two dogs and one cat. I've had nothing but great experiences. I would recommend this organization to anyone.

Twin Cities Pet Rescue is my favorite rescue out there. They are so unique and so willing to help. Every single person who volunteers with this rescue are so amazing and so readily willing to help. I found my cat and my dog at this rescue. Every single foster animal has a story and their stories are all so different and their foster parents are still willing to help them no matter what. My kitty was a fighter, one of the sick kittens they rescued and they fought for him. They were told to euthanize and his foster mom refused-stayed up with him through the night and bottle fed him and gave him so much love and affection. I owe her my biggest thank you because he is my best friend and has been for the last 5 years. This rescue is very organized and they are so ready to help every single person find their best friend and for every animal to have a second chance at an amazing life and a chance to find their FURever home.

I am a volunteer for TCPR as a long-time dog foster. We have been lucky enough to have a mix of foster dogs over the years in terms of behavior and temperament. Even when we had dogs who were difficult behaviorally, TCPR worked with us and had behavioralist volunteers who took the time to come to our house and do training. TCPR is an outstanding organization. They provide superb medical care as far as rescues go, and they also exclusively feed their animals high-quality food. They really do go above and beyond in caring for animals, and they don't just take the "easy" or "adoptable" animals. They are willing to put in the time, money, and work to save even those animals that will take time to place in homes.

I was looking for a cat. It had been more than a year since my 23 year old rescue cat passed and the retriever I share with my daughter is generally at her house. I was ready for a new furry companion. After doing a few searches, up popped the 4 year old sweetie I ended up adopting from TCPR. What I thoroughly like about TCPR was how careful they were. At the time, though, I admit I was a little taken aback at the detailed application needed to adopt a 4 year old cat. Now, after thinking more about it, and after receiving excellent follow up care, I am 100% pleased with their approach. My Kitty spent the first few days sneezing constantly. TCPR had thorough Vet and vaccination records from their analysis of the cat I adopted, and those records had been sent to me, so the odds were that all the sneezing was stress. Still, TCPR did a great job responding to my worry and was willing to have me take her to my Vet to be sure all was OK. I decided not to put Kitty through more stress by taking her to the Vet yet again (sorry, Vets, but cats don't like visiting you much). Instead, I waited it out for another few days, and presto! No more sneezing and happy Kitty - and happy new owner. It's great to give a home to a pet that needs a rescue home. It's also great to feel confident about the organization that did the initial rescuing. The follow up care was perfect. Highly recommend!

We are forever grateful to Twin Cities Pet Rescue because they helped us find our lovely dog Tommy. They were terrific to work with--very honest, professional, personable, accommodating, and supportive. They obviously make a huge different in animals' lives, and they do it in a way that demonstrates both high standards for pet care, and great client service. They made us feel very supported throughout our adoption experience. We were able to get so many questions answered before adopting, which really enabled us to find a dog that is a perfect match for our family. We also found Tommy's foster family to be great and wonderful to communicate with, and we know they took such great care of our guy before he came to us. Thank you TCPR!

I did a last minute sign up to be a foster when I saw a large number of cats were being put down at animal control because they were sick. I had an almost immediate response and my placement in my home within the day. I was so relieved to have someone who cared enough to get my guy pulled just in time. They were so great to work with and didn't make me feel bad at all when I became a foster failure. I love their policy of being there for the animals for the rest of their lives no matter what may happen in the owner's. I will definitely be adopting from them in the future and hopefully volunteering as well.

I adopted Gordon through TCPR in August 2015. Amy was very helpful and patient with my busy life and willing to work with me in order to make sure Gordon had a easy transition. Other members and volunteers also stepped up to the plate to help me and Gordon out when my schedule was stretched to the limit. They are just amazing people.
The whole organization was great at keeping me in the loop with appointments, transfer info, and getting all of his records over to me. This organization cares about their animals so much and it so heart warming to see and hear all of their success stories online. I am defiantly keeping them on my mind for future adoptions!

I have watched the volunteers for this organization put heart and soul into TCPR's mission time and time again. They're an extraordinarily dedicated and vibrant group of people who carve out time in their already busy lives to find homes for animals that are, in many cases, very challenging to place. Why? Because they recognize that it's about helping some of the most defenseless, innocent, and kind animals in the region. They should be applauded for the incredible undertaking that they have committed to one pet at a time.

Twin Cities Pet Rescue (TCPR) is an organized, process-driven, foster-based rescue that I'm proud to volunteer for. I've worked with several other rescues in the past as a foster, adopter and/or volunteer. TCPR far exceeds the norm when it comes to matching pets with their adoptive homes and ensuring it's a good fit for both the animal and the family. They also make a point to take in animals that are otherwise left behind including senior pets, pets with special needs and/or special medical cases. For being completely volunteer run the responsiveness and communication is top-notch. TCPR rocks!

I've volunteered for TCPR for about 5 years in various capacities. The volunteers who run the organization dedicate their lives to the betterment of animals in danger. To be clear, they are unpaid volunteers and they spend many, many hours a week devoted to helping sick and abused animals recover and go on to be healthy, cherished family pets. TCPR is known for stepping up for the sickest animals and putting the time and effort in to help them back to health. The well-being of the animals is very clearly at the heart of this organization. It's pretty amazing. TCPR transforms lives.

We recently adopted a dog from Twin Cities Pet Rescue and had a fantastic experience. The volunteers were great to work with and they were prompt in answering all of our questions. Our phone calls were returned within a couple hours. Even after the adoption was complete, they were happy to answer our questions. They even checked in with us about 24 hours after the adoption to see how things were going. We would definitely adopt from them again. We've already recommended them to some of our friends and family.

Allie was nearing euthanization, as she had been at Minneapolis Animal Control a long time. She had to go through an approved rescue to get out because of her breed, so I am so grateful they believed in me and helped me get her released. I cannot imagine life without this beautiful dog.

I was surprised to read the negative review that was recently posted about Twin Cities Pet Rescue. I adopted a dog from them and they were fantastic. I was treated very well and they responded to my questions promptly. I think people forget that this is a volunteer run non-profit organization. They don't have paid employees like a lot of animal rescues in town. Most of the volunteers have full time jobs, families, and go to school. Volunteering with the rescue is their way of giving back. It'd be nice if people were a little more understanding.

I've been a volunteer with Twin Cities Pet Rescue since their inception 5 years ago. I've fostered, helped with home visits and adoptions, and participated in fundraising events. TCPR is different than a lot of other local rescue groups in that they are more focused on quality versus quantity. They don't try to rescue and place the MOST animals, but take the time to select those animals that other rescue groups overlook because they are sick or elderly. They take their time screening applications and completing thorough home visits to make sure the placement is the best fit for both the animal and the adoptive family. This means that less animals are given up and put back in the cycle. The rescue will do everything in their power to help the animal become healthy and successful with the second chance they've been given. This often means very expensive medical care. I'm proud to be a part of this organization and commit to supporting them for the foreseeable future. I'd highly recommend TCPR to anyone looking for a deserving organization to donate to.

As a certified vet tech and someone that has volunteered with and worked as administration in rescue for over 10 years, I believe that Twin Cities Pet Rescue is among the best rescues in the US.
They provide nothing but the best veterinary care for their fosters, many rescues go the cheapest route, versus what is in the best interest of the animal. Every animal that is rescued by TCPR recieves top notch veterinary care. They have a very talented and knowledgeable dog trainer on staff! They rescue the pets that other rescue overlook - whether because of age, illness, history, or temperment. They work within their means, they don't pull animals they don't have space or funds for. They are one of the few rescues in MN that have community outreach programs, helping to keep local pets in their homes, and to get them the vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries that they need. They work hard to focus their rescue work on local pets, pulling from local impounds, puppy mills, and reservations. It is a small rescue where you get to intimately know one another and the director is a part of every aspect of the rescue. Administration gets back to you promptly and efficiently.
I could not be happier to be a part of Twin Cities Pet Rescue and those are just a few of the reasons . I am proud to represent such a wonderful organization with such loving, passionate people.

I have been a volunteer with Twin Cities Pet Rescue for several years now. TCPR is different from many other rescue organizations, because much of their efforts are focused on the animals that need help most and are at highest risk of euthanasia. These are often animals that are overlooked by potential adopters and even other rescue organizations because they might be older (5+ years), special needs, or sick (while at city impounds). These animals are often harder to find homes for, but TCPR strongly believes they deserve a chance at finding their homes nonetheless.

TCPR is run by a small group of volunteers who work tirelessly to help animals whose lives are on the line, provide them with veterinary care (often providing them with specialty surgeries, dermatology treatments, etc) and find them furever homes. It is truly amazing what this group is able to accomplish with such limited resources.

At first blush, seemingly a good organization to volunteer with; however, unfriendly towards volunteers:
Expect many communications to occur(emails, texts, telephone) when inquiring about something or trying to obtain food or supplies
Expect untimely replies and responses (days), and then not all inquiries addressed or answered
Expect to wait typically 30-45 minutes at agreed meetups and at organizational events for person in charge to show
Snarky conversations and behavior; privately and at organizational events
Expect your suggestions and offers of help to be ignored
