Mission Statement

PPR’s mission is to end animal homelessness and suffering by focusing on reducing the homeless animal population at its source through our free spay/neuter clinics for animals both in our local MN community and Mexico. PPR believes that all animals deserve a loving and healthy life. In order to fully provide for animals in need we dedicate our time and energy to help animals locally and beyond by providing free vet care for low-income communities.


Our Story:

Pet Project Rescue was started in response to the needs of street animals on Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Many of these animals live in desperate conditions, where they have to fight to stay alive each day on the street. It is a heart-wrenching site for any animal lover, and once you have seen one of these adorable dogs or cats it is impossible not to want to do something to help them.

We instantly fell in love with all the wonderful street animals in Mexico. We got involved in large spay & neuter programs to end the cycle of life on the streets for these animals. Since 2008 thousands of animals have been cared for and the number of street animals continues to decrease, while education of good pet ownership continues.

As of April 2009 PPR began working with our local animal control to rescue local cats and dogs. We strongly support the animals in our local area as well, and we new that we had to more do get to the root of the problem and really be the solution to pet overpopulation and homelessness. After 8 years it became clear that the only way we would ever empty all our shelters is to get serious about spay/neuter programs and education. We shifted our focus to what we also saw working in Mexico, and put our endless hard work into preventing unwanted and unplanned litters that fill our rescues and shelters with free spay/neuter programs for both dogs and cats in low-income communities. We truly believe we will solve animal suffering by dedicating ourselves to spay and neuter!
