In a span of seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 kittens, leading to feline overpopulation in urban areas and, consequently, a high rate of adoptable kittens being euthanized at animal shelters. Pet Project Rescue strives to reduce the population of homeless cats—thereby reducing the number of euthanized shelter cats—by conducting spaying and neutering programs for free.
Through a partnership with the Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program, Pet Project Rescue spays and neuters stray, feral, and free-roaming cats at no charge. Cats belonging to low-income families are also eligible for the treatment. In addition to reproductive surgeries, feline patients can receive reduced-cost rabies vaccinations and microchipping to ensure their health and well-being and to help protect other animal and human populations. An effective antidote to overpopulation, Pet Project Rescue helps to save adoptable animals from euthanization and find them homes.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Pet Project Rescue reduce the number of euthanized cats and overpopulation of homeless cats in the Twin Cities. If G-Team members raise $500, Pet Project Rescue can partner with the Minnesota Spay Neuter Assistance Program to spay or neuter 10 cats. Each additional $50 raised will be used to spay or neuter an additional cat. Both Solid Gold Northland and Urbanimal will give $1 for every donation, with each matching up to $250.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.

When Matt and Maia, co-founders of Pet Project Rescue, first learned of the dogs struggling to survive on the streets of Isla Mujeres, Mexico, they knew they had to help. They founded PPR and began working with a similar organization in Mexico, Isla Animal Rescue, to rescue these dogs, give them medical care, and place them in foster homes in Minnesota. While waiting to be adopted, the dogs continue to receive vet care and training from PPR.
Today, the organization has expanded its focus by rescuing cats and dogs from local animal control and high-kill shelters. It also provides free spay or neutering treatments for homeless cats, as well as cats and dogs owned by low-income families, with the aim of ending the homeless-pet epidemic.
