If you need to surrender your dog to please contact

We assure that the Miniature Schnauzers surrendered to us will never go to a shelter or be without a home again. All are altered, up-to-date on shots, and given any medical treatments needed.

  • Mpls./St. Paul Miniature Schnauzer Rescue mainly corresponds through e-mail and telephone calls. 
  • We focus on providing owners a means to have their purebred Miniature Schnauzers placed by a reputable dog rescue group. The group has many organizational forms we use to make this process professional.
  • We also educate the public on how to find a dog, responsible dog ownership, training issues.  Irresponsible breeders, pet stores, and other sellers of dogs do not care where their dogs are being placed, resulting in overcrowded shelters.  Going through a breed rescue group will stop this cycle of dogs being given way to “Just Anyone.” takes responsibility for proper placement and what the breeders should have done to begin with.

Please make all contacts regarding MSPMSR and surrendering an animal to Pam O’Brien, Rescue coordinator.
