MISCONCEPTION: Part of HSUS or ASPCA or PETA

MISCONCEPTION:
AHS is a local chapter of the HSUS, ASPCA or PETA

TRUTH: We’re completely independent and local to Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn. We’re not affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States or any other national group, which means we don’t get any financial support from them—or the government either.

MISCONCEPTION: Animals available for research

MISCONCEPTION:
AHS provides animals for research testing

TRUTH: We exist to make the world a more humane place for animals. We oppose the pound seizure law* and believe sending animals to research facilities for biomedical testing and research goes against our mission and values. Read our statement on animals used for biomedical research, testing and education.

MISCONCEPTION: Now Boarding jeapordizes animal care

MISCONCEPTION:
Now Boarding jeopardizes care of animals at Animal Humane Society

TRUTH: On the contrary! Now Boarding, a pet boarding and dog day care center near the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport, is a for-profit business owned by Animal Humane Society and operated by an independent staff.

MISCONCEPTION: Funded by tax dollars

MISCONCEPTION:
AHS receives tax dollars from the government

TRUTH: We’re self-supporting. We don’t get entitlement funds from city, county, state or federal sources.
