Minneapolis Animal Shelters You Can Help from Home

From newborn kittens to senior dogs, local Minneapolis animal shelters help pets in need. They provide food, medical care, and a place to stay until the animals find forever families. If you would like to support their mission, here are a few shelters you can help from our Minneapolis apartments:


An all-volunteer group, the Minnesota Basset Rescue helps purebred bassets and mixes live long, healthy lives. The dogs stay in foster homes until they’re adopted. They come from breeders, other shelters, and owners who can no longer provide care. The rescue welcomes donations online and by mail. The money helps pay for food, training, and heartworm medications. You can also shop from its online store featuring hoodies, pet shampoo, and so much more. 


Helping over 22,000 pets every year, the Animal Humane Society is one of the country’s leading animal welfare organizations. It boasts three locations in the Twin Cities. The volunteers welcome cats and dogs of all ages and breeds, along with small animals such as rabbits and birds. You can help the Animal Welfare Society by designating it your charity of choice on AmazonSmile. After shopping for your favorite products, Amazon will donate 0.5% of all eligible purchases to the society. 


Underdog is both a rehabilitation and placement organization. It cares for cats and dogs of all breeds and has rehomed over 12,000 pets since 2000. The animals receive medical evaluations, and the rescue ensures they find loving families. To help Underdog, shop from its Amazon Wishlist. The items will ship to the rescue and include food, toys, and collars.
