OUR STORY

MN Pocket Pet Rescue began in April 2014 when local pocket pet lovers Ash Russell, Kelly McCann, and Elizabeth McCann decided it was time to create this much-needed resource for small animals in need in the Twin Cities area. We have since grown immensely thanks to the passion and interest of our volunteers and the community. We are incredibly grateful for everyone who has helped us out so far, MNPPR could not function without our awesome supporters!
