Minneapolis Animal Care and Control Having “Really Tough Time”

pet news

The Minneapolis Animal Care and Control in Minneapolis, Minnesota has seen 139 animals come through their doors in this month alone which represents a 57.7% increase from the same time in 2022, according to MPR News.

Shelter director Caroline Hairfield says that many of the animals have been surrendered and there has been a 67.5% increase in owner surrenders so far this year compared with last year, with many citing housing related issues.

“We have a really high standard of care here” community engagement coordinator Madison Weissenborn said. “We try to get everybody out three to four times a day, we do treadmill training, playgroups, but we’re having a really hard time and have had to pick which need it the most … it’s hard choice.”

Weissenborn said the shelter is always looking for volunteers and the current adoptable animals on the shelter’s website do not reflect the increase of animals they have received in the past days.

MACC is located at  212 17th Ave. N. in Minneapolis, Minnesota and you can make an appointment here or reach out to donate.
