Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a volunteer foster based rescue. Our foster homes are located in the Twin Cities. We do have a limited adoption radius of 60 miles.

About Our Rescue Group:

Minnesota Progressive Animal Welfare Society was formed by a group of dedicated volunteers who hope to raise awareness of the plight of rural shelter dogs in this country. Every day, healthy, adoptable animals find themselves in a shelter, with little chance of adoption. Many are euthanized due to a lack of space at the shelter, illness contracted while in the shelter, or a lack of community funds to support their housing. Our main goal is to pull adoptable dogs from these shelters, and place them into foster homes until appropriate forever homes can be found.

Our Adoption Process:

All of our available dogs are currently in foster homes. If you are interested in meeting one of our available dogs please complete an adoption application at and click on the adopt page. Approved applicants will be contacted and we will set up a time for you to meet the available dog. If a match is made we will do a home visit, complete an adoption contract and finalize the adoption. All available dogs are given age appropriate vaccines, veterinary exams, microchipped, spayed/neutered, and dewormed prior to adoption. Adoption fees vary from 300.00 to 350.00. These costs cover all necessary veterinary treatments, and also allow us to help dogs with more severe medical conditions.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
