Who We Are

What We Do

We are a small private rescue in Minnesota and Wisconsin devoted to helping Persians and Himalayans in need of re-homing.

We operate solely on the financial and physical support of our direct volunteers.

Where We Are

Minnkota Persian Rescue is run entirely by volunteer foster homes. We have foster homes in Wisconsin and Minnesota. We do not have a physical shelter location.

Foster homes are desperately needed in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Call or email today if you can help save a life!

Minnkota Persian Rescue Liability Waiver (for Adoption from Owner)

I understand that the cat I am adopting named ________________ is not a Minnkota Persian Rescue cat.

I understand that Minnkota Persian Rescue has simply assisted the previous owner in finding a new home.

I also understand that Minnkota Persian Rescue has not verified information provided by previous owner and therefore they make no guarantee that information provided by previous owner is true. (MPR highly recommends you take the cat to a licensed veterinarian immediately upon adoption for exam and any other needed care.)

I also understand that Minnkota Persian Rescue recommends keeping the cat away from children and other animals until the cats behavior is known to me.

I release Minnkota Persian Rescue from all liability.
