Pet Project Rescue is a no-kill, 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue which places homeless animals in foster care homes until they are adopted by their forever families. Based in Minneapolis, Pet Project Rescue includes cats and dogs from the surrounding area but was started in response to the needs of street dogs on Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Many of these dogs have no homes and live in desperate conditions, where they have to fight to stay alive. Isla Pet Volunteers gather the dogs and cats that run stray in the streets and give them foster care and vet attention prior to flying them to Minnesota where they are fostered and found forever homes by Pet Project Rescue. Recently, the ratio of pets from the local community (from local animal control and puppy mills) to the pets from Mexico has become approximately 50/50 due to the rising need of no-kill rescue resources here in Minnesota. Pet Project Rescue is a volunteer-based rescue so all adoption fees and donations go back into the program to help save more cats and dogs that are in need.
