MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis Animal Care and Control (MACC) hoped to find all of its cats and dogs forever homes, for free, and did so early.

National Adoption Weekend started Friday and was set to continue through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. However, due to all of the cats and dogs getting adopted, the event has now been canceled.

Animals adopted through MACC came vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered, while animals adopted through the city's rescue partners — Carver Scott Humane Society, Pet Haven and Ruff Start Rescue — were subject to those organizations' adoption processes and practices. 

MACC screens all applicants to ensure a proper fit with your future pet, and the entire process is first come, first serve.  

Adoptive owners should still expect to pay a pet licensing fee, under the City of Minneapolis' policies.
