Pet Support Program

The goal of our Pet Support Program division is to keep pets at home, where they belong, and prevent healthy and adoptable animals from entering the shelter/rescue system. We do this by providing resources for affordable veterinary care, food, supplies and training support. We recognize that sometimes surrendering a pet is unavoidable. For that, we offer assistance for responsibly re-homing the pet. Fur Keeps is broken down into three sub-programs:

• Shelter Diversion (surrender prevention, re-homing, basic veterinary care, etc.)
• Wilson’s Fund (emergency veterinary support)
• Food Shelf support (in partnership with our local CAP Agency)

Population(s) Served
Adults

We work to lower adoption barriers so good people can adopt good pets. We do this by approaching adoptions from a place of yes. Instead of rigorous applications and policies, we use conversation-based methods. Our goal is to help match the person to the pet and the pet to the person. We also do our best to prevent pet surrenders, which creates capacity for us to transfer most of our animals from high-volume impounds and shelters throughout Minnesota and beyond.

A 2014 study showed that people who adopt through conversation-based programs provide the same high-quality care to their pets as those who adopted through a policy-based program. In addition, the study showed that these people are just as likely to be highly bonded to their pets as policy-based adopters.
