Cat Adoption Application
Dog Adoption Application
Pet Haven is a foster-based rescue. Our animals live with foster families until they are placed in permanent homes and their foster families get to know the dogs and cats learning important information about the animals. For example, the foster family will know if the dog or cat is good with other animals or children, and will have a good idea of what kind of training, attention, and special needs the pet may require. This makes our foster families great resources for potential adopters!
Our animals come from shelters, animal control facilities, and are surrendered by owners.
We are committed to providing post-adoption services that include our health guarantee and behavior counseling. Therefore, we prefer an animal’s new home to be within reach of our volunteers and veterinary clinics. For this reason, Pet Haven prefers to limit its animal placements to locations within 75 miles of the Twin Cities but we will consider applications up to 200 miles of the Twin Cities. Adopters must be willing to drive to locations in the Twin Cities.
If an animal is available for at least 60 days or we feel they would be better suited outside of city limits; we have extended our adoption radius from 75-miles to 200-miles outside Minneapolis, MN City Center, or possibly further, a distance at the foster’s discretion since they will be coordinating the adoption. If you are outside of the 75-mile radius, the guidelines are as follows:
Adoption fees vary depending on the age and breed of the animal. Every pet placed through Pet Haven is spayed or neutered, is up-to-date on vaccinations, has a microchip ID, and has been examined by a veterinarian to make sure it is healthy at the time of adoption. You can view our adoption fees here.

While we work hard to ensure great matches are made between animals and their adopters, we know that circumstances sometimes require people to make the difficult choice to return their pet. Pet Haven will work with adopters to welcome back any animal adopted from Pet Haven into our care if the need arises. Adopters are offered a 10-day “grace period” post-adoption and can return their pet if necessary. Previous adopters can learn more about the surrender process here.
