About RPAW

Rescued Pets Are Wonderful is a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer animal rescue organization serving the Twin Cities metro area. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats left homeless for whatever reason – animals in public shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, animals given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect.

We place dogs and cats in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog or cat into their homes and lives.

Our Mission

How We Work

We pull unclaimed strays from local animal control facilities and shelters that are too full.

We will provide all of the necessary veterinary procedures that they may need prior to their adoption.

We place them in loving foster homes until an adoptive home is found. They live with us until they are adopted.

We bring them to adoption events around the twin cities to promote them and find them homes.
