People & Pets Together

is one of the nation’s first surrender prevention programs. We offer assistance to families during economic hardships by providing pet food to food shelves, hosting subsidized vaccination clinics, working closely with veterinarians to offset client costs, and by opening Minnesota’s first fully dedicated pet food shelf and resource center.

People & Pets Together offer hope and an alternative to surrender. We support the relationships that people have with their pets. Caring for them gives us purpose, and the love we give them is repaid tenfold. We know pets are family, and we help families stay together.
