Non-profit animal rescue organization that takes in stray cats and dogs and gives them the medical attention needed and finds forever homes for them!
Rescued Pets Are Wonderful is a nonprofit group of volunteers dedicated to finding loving homes for rescued dogs and cats, and educating the Twin Cities community about responsible pet ownership and overpopulation. Since 2004, RPAW has rescued and rehomed almost 4,000 animals.
RPAW is completely volunteer-based and relies on donations and adoption fees to continue its mission. There is no physical shelter, all animals are hosted in private foster homes or in adoption centers at local pet supply stores. Potential adopters can find animals up for adoption online at www.rpaw.org and www.petfinder.com, and at adoption events and several local adoption centers.
Each year in the U.S., over 8 million animals stray or unwanted animals find themselves in shelters or animal control facilities. RPAW works with several local animal control facilities to save unclaimed animals that may otherwise be euthanized. We also take in animals surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them. Once animals are taken into our program, we provide them with lots of love, a temporary home and veterinary care. Each rescued animal remains in the care of RPAW volunteers until a suitable forever home is found.
