Rescue FAQs

Serving the Twin Cities metro area for most of the adoptions. Unaltered puppies must be adopted within a 40 mile radius to make compliance with the contract agreement to have them spayed/neutered easier for the adopter (surgery price included in adoption fee only at specified vet in St. Paul). We do not ship animals.

Additional adoption info

Initial contact is made by leaving a message on the Second Chance answering machine - expect a return call within 24 hrs. Potential adopters will be screened, and possibly a home visit done before a referral is made to the foster home where the animal is currently housed. They can expect to fill out a written application, sign an adoption contract and pay the adoption fee at time of pick up. Adopters must be at least 20 yr old. If renting, the landlord's consent in writing is required or a copy of the lease brought with you at time of adoption. Must have familiarity with local animal ordinances so you know how many cats/dogs you are permitted - this will vary from city to city. Potential adopters must understand that their application can be denied.
