Usually by the time animals reach Southwest Metro Animal Rescue, they are faced with one last chance to find a home.


These animals are abandoned, stray, abused, neglected or unwanted. As frustrating as this can be, we cannot prevent animals from being surrendered or abandoned or whatever the case may be, so we focus on the next best solution, finding them a new home for life through Pet Adoption.

Because our animals are housed in foster homes, we get to know each animal very well, and this enables us to find a suitable match for each pet. We feel that our Foster Program is beneficial to the adoptive family because they are provided with a personality profile of each pet. This gives them the advantage of learning the needs of the animal before taking the big step of adoption.

All of our pets have been spayed or neutered if over 6 months of age, updated on all vaccinations, tested for parasites, microchip ID implant, cats tested for feline leukemia, dogs tested for heartworm and preventative given.

If you would like to learn more about the pets available for adoption, call 952-368-PAWS (7297), and a representative will call you with more information.

The rewards of foster care are many. You can watch these animals transform from being lonely and unwanted into loving, happy and grateful pets that are eventually adopted into wonderful loving homes. You are given the opportunity to share your love for animals and make the most of that last chance for many homeless pets.
