Instead of continually (and loudly) proclaiming what we are against, we believe it is far more effective to let people know what we are for.

More than 20,000 unwanted dogs and cats are killed in the Twin Cities metro area shelters every year because there are more animals than good homes. The Minnesota Spay/Neuter Project, Inc. (MNSP) was founded on the conviction that the only way to end the overpopulation problem is to stop the flow at its source—by preventing unwanted litters. MSNP addresses that unique community need by focusing on serving low-income neighborhoods and residents. Overpopulation is more rampant in low-income neighborhoods and residents often lack access to veterinary clinics and the financial resources needed to have their animals sterilized. Each spay/neuter project funded by MSNP costs approximately $4000 to $5000. MSNP is an all-volunteer organization so every dollar received goes directly toward helping animals.

Statute of Limitations

Web Site: www.statutes-of-limitations.com/news/read/animal-law-101 Minnesota Statutes of Limitations

Animals are and have always been an intricate part of nature and our planet. The relationship of wild animals with the rest of Earth's ecosystems is what makes life on the planet possible for all living things. Just like there are rules and laws for humans that make the world a safer and more organized place, there are laws created to protect animals and regulate the way they are treated.

Animal law addresses issues such as mistreatment of animals, laboratory research on animals, and conservation of endangered species. Most of the laws are carried out on the state level, but additional laws are carried out by the federal government.
