October is National Animal Safety
and Protection Month
The mission of Animal Folks is to protect animals and prevent animal cruelty by creating a modern system of animal law enforcement in Minnesota. Core to this mission is system reform — working with authorities to provide sustainable changes that enhance how animal anti-cruelty laws are enforced. Programs include extensive research on animal cruelty; filing civil and cruelty complaints; development of policies and training on animal law; legislative action; and outreach and education.
MN SNAP's mission is to end the suffering and death of Minnesota cats and dogs due to overpopulation by providing both high-quality, affordable and accessible spay and neuter services to those in need, and animal welfare education in the communities we serve. Our mission is accomplished via a mobile surgery clinic that travels throughout the state and a stationary clinic located in North Minneapolis. Services are provided to low-income families, 501(c)(3) rescue partners and shelters.
Secondhand Hounds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue. Founded in July of 2009, our 1,500+ foster homes, 3,000 dedicated volunteers, and staff members have made a positive impact on the lives of many animals in our community. Our organization provides safe foster homes, proper veterinary care and daily necessities for our dogs and cats, while working hard to find each a permanent, loving home! To date we have rescued over 16,000 animals!
