Minnesota No-Kill Rescue Resources

The Bitty Kitty Brigade is only able to accept orphaned kittens who are not eating on their own. Below is a list of other no-kill cat rescues in the Minneapolis, St. Paul and surrounding Minnesota areas. If you need to surrender a kittens with mom, older kittens or adult cats to rescue, please contact as many rescues in your area as you can and ask to be placed on a waiting list if necessary.  

  If you’re on Facebook, the groups MN Cats in Danger and MN & WI Cats in Need of Rescue are a good place to network cats in need.
