Stay tuned for updates on the breeder bill.

At the time this edition of Animal Tracks went to print, Animal Humane Society was involved in a number of efforts at the Minnesota Legislature, including supporting a bill that would require licensing and inspection of large commercial dog and cat breeding operations.

Because action was expected in both the Minnesota House and Senate between the time this magazine was printed and when it arrived in your hands, we have created a page on the AHS website to give you access to the most current developments in our legislative efforts.

It’s been nine months since Animal Humane Society was called upon to rescue 133 dogs and puppies from a breeding facility in northern Minnesota. But to many involved in the case that has become known simply as “Pine River,” after the Cass County town where the seizure occurred, it feels like it was only yesterday.

It takes a network to get pets adopted

By Dorothy Grinolds

With more than 20,000 animals coming through our doors each year, Animal Humane Society needs to use every tool at our disposal to match up pets with adopters.

In this day and age, that means engaging not just the hearts, hands and minds of the community to help animals, but engaging their newsfeeds – and their TV sets -- as well.
