Donate Today

Thank you for your interest in making a donation to Minneapolis Animal Care and Control. Our current needs include:

Financial Donations

When animals are brought to the Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (MACC), we do not turn them away. In fact, nearly 4,000 animals will be cared for this year by our staff, veterinarians, and volunteers.

MACC is supported by the city's general revenue fund and must compete for limited resources with other important city services, including the Police and Fire Departments. With your help, MACC can continue to improve and expand our operations and programs for needy animals in our community.

Food and Enrichment Items for Dogs and Cats

Veterinary Products and Supplies

All donated items must be unopened and not expired (we will accept a donation if the outer box is opened, but the inner foil packaging is still intact). Common donations include:

Feel free to drop off your donations during our public shelter hours – Monday through Friday, 1:00pm to 6:00pm, and Saturday from 11:30am to 3:30pm.

We DO NOT accept the following items:

QuiltsToo big for our kennels
PillowsEasily destroyed by the animals and can be a choking hazard
Used LitterboxesSpread disease between animals if not properly sanitized
