Minneapolis ends appointment requirement for animal shelter visits

Minneapolis residents looking to adopt a pet are no longer required to make an appointment before visiting the city’s animal shelter.

The City of Minneapolis announced the new Animal Care and Control policy Thursday, ending a requirement that was first implemented at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It comes as Minneapolis Animal Control deals with serious capacity issues, prompting it to waive adoption fees and issue an urgent call for adoptees last week as it has “extremely high number of dogs and cats” currently in its shelter and its foster homes.
