New Pet Licensing Lawn Signs

Minneapolis Animal Care & Control is rolling out an educational campaign to make our residents aware of the requirement to license all dogs and cats over four (4) months of age. When a pet is lost and is brought to the animal shelter, 98 percent of pets go home alive because of identification through the license tag. More information is on our website – www.minneapolismn.gov/animals.

Please consider helping Minneapolis’ lost animals by requesting a handsome lawn sign. It’s free and easy. Simply email Jeanette.Wiedemeier@minneapolismn.govand we will get a sign for you to display in your yard.

I Love My Pet Rewards Program

We are excited to report that several new businesses are now providing special offers or discounts to pet owners who license their animals. Receive a free fitness class at a new studio in the North Loop, $50 discount off a photography session, 20 percent off auto detailing services, $20 off landscaping services, and much more!

Earlier this week, construction began on MACC’s new outdoor dog socialization and exercise area. We have been raising money for over two years, and the project should be completed by June 1.

We are pleased to report that no city dollars went into the project. Only donations from animal lovers were accepted.

MACC will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, June 20 at noon. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Jeanette.Wiedemeier@minneapolismn.gov.
