City’s animal shelter announces adoption fee donation program for holiday season

Just in time for the holiday season, Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (MACC), is announcing that Best Friends Animal Society will cover adoption fees for animals at MACC from Thanksgiving to New Year's.

"This support from Best Friends Animal Society is tremendous," said Caroline Hairfield, MACC Director. "This generosity will hopefully result in many animals finding their forever families this Holiday season."

MACC is located at 202 17th Ave. N in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Animal Care & Control works with residents to create safe and healthy communities for people and animals. Its staff includes two veterinarians, three veterinary technicians, four animal care technicians and a dozen animal control officers who, among other things, rescue animals, enforce laws pertaining to animal welfare and investigate animal crimes. In addition to staff, volunteers spent more than 7,000 hours of their time working with animals at the shelter. More information on adopting animals, volunteering, and supporting Animal Care & Control is available on the City website.
