Sit a Dog, Save a Life

Sit a Dog, Save a Life lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in Minneapolis donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Minneapolis.

MN Snap

It is MN SNAP's mission to end the suffering and death of homeless animals due to pet overpopulation by providing high-quality, affordable, and accessible spay and neuter services to Minnesota shelters, rescue organizations, and the companion animals of the low-income community.

The fully equipped veterinary clinic on wheels delivers low-cost, high-quality spay and neuter surgeries for these organizations and pet owners in Minnesota. MN SNAP reaches pets in neighborhoods where cost, transportation, or the absence of veterinary services is an obstacle to obtaining animal health care and spay/neuter services.

Secondhand Hounds

The Secondhand Hounds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue. Founded in July of 2009, our many volunteers have made a positive impact on the lives of many dogs and cats in our community. Our organization provides safe shelter, proper veterinary care and daily necessities for animals at risk, while working hard to find each a permanent, loving home!
