February's Featured Pets of the Month!!
Dolly is a very sweet 6 year old Pekingese. She is a retired breeder and as a result, she is learning how to climb stairs and go for walks. Her few teeth she has left are in bad shape due to a lack of care! Dolly has a very mellow personality and needs a home to bring love into her life.
Opus is a little over 2 years old and is a handsome boy!! He would like to be in a home with NO other cats or dogs or small children.
If you think you may provide the perfect home for either of these two sweet animals, find out more about them, check them out under the tab Adoption!
Our Pet Adoption Days are held the second Saturday of each month at PetSmart in Eden Prairie from 11 am to 2:00 pm. PetSmart is located at 11200 Prairie Lakes Drive.
All of our animals have received at a minimum, updated vaccinations, tested for heartworm (dogs) and preventative given, tested for feline leukemia (cats), have been spayed or neutered if over 6 months of age and have a microchip ID implant.

Southwest Metro Animal Rescue and Adoption Society is a non-profit organization committed to the rescue of abandoned, abused and stray domestic animals.
We believe the animal-human bond is strengthened through education of the public on the humane treatment of animals, pet population control and support for animal protection laws.
We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We do not have any paid staff and receive no government funding. Our founding members have over 35 years combined experience in the animal rescue field. We have established federal tax-exempt status as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.
Southwest Metro Animal Rescue does not operate a shelter building, and is a volunteer foster home-based organization that hosts regular scheduled monthly Pet Adoption Days. Our procedure is to evaluate the animal, provide necessary medical care (including spay/neuter), place in a caring foster home, and finally find a suitable forever home for each pet. We rely on donations of food and supplies to care for the pets. We maintain a no-kill policy except in cases when euthanasia is deemed the only viable, reasonable and humane option.
