Managing health issues due to pet

Managing health issues due to your pet

Before you consider giving up your pet because of health concerns it may have caused a family member, learn more about the conditions to determine if they are cause for concern or if there are ways to manage symptoms while still keeping your pet in the home.

Emergency veterinary care

Resources for pet owners

Resources for pet owners

We understand that your pet is an important part of your family and we want to help you locate resources that will keep them healthy, safe and happy. We’ve compiled the following list to help you provide the essentials for your pet.

Pet friendly housing

Pet friendly housing

Moving with pets can often be a difficult process, and for property managers, finding responsible tenants with pets can also be a challenge. Animal Humane Society has compiled resources on pet friendly housing for both tenants and property managers. It is our goal to minimize the number of animals surrendered to shelters due to an inability to find suitable housing that accommodates pets.

Tenants

Pet supplies and merchandise

Pet supplies and merchandise

When you adopt a pet at Animal Humane Society, you can trust you have all that you need to make your new pet feel at home.

An assortment of pet supplies and merchandise are conveniently located in the adoption center so you won’t have to worry about making an extra stop after you adopt.

Animal Humane Society offers convenience, competitive pricing, knowledgeable staff and most importantly, all proceeds from merchandise sales support the programs and services of Animal Humane Society.

Spay/neuter services

Spay/neuter services

At Animal Humane Society, we understand the importance of spaying and neutering pets. Every day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the United States. More than 60% of them are unwanted and will be abandoned, often brought to a shelter or rescue organization. We believe animals in our community deserve better.

It is only with incredible spay/neuter efforts that we’ll reduce the dramatic number of animals that need homes. That's why we spay or neuter every dog, cat, and rabbit in our care before they are adopted.

Veterinary assistance

Veterinary assistance

Minnesota law* makes it unlawful for Animal Humane Society to practice veterinary medicine on animals not owned by our organization. Please consider the programs listed below.

Local organizations

Animal Care Foundation
A non-profit organization that provides free veterinary care to blind, disabled or elderly people with limited financial resources.

Memorial pet cemetery

Memorial pet cemetery

The Memorial Pet Cemetery, the oldest pet cemetery in the Twin Cities, is the final resting place for thousands of companion animals. The cemetery has been in existence since the early 1920s and was formerly known as the Feist Pet Cemetery. It was donated to Animal Humane Society in the late 1980s.

Pet loss support group

Pet Loss Support Group

Pets give us companionship and unconditional love. Our relationships with them are very special. For many of us, our companion animal is a member of the family, and when the bond we share is broken, the resulting sense of loss and grief is as real and sometimes as overwhelming as when we lose a relative or human friend.

Therapy animals

Therapy animals

The Animal Humane Society's Animal Ambassadors are specially-trained volunteers who, along with their own pets, provide animal-assisted therapy and activities to the elderly in nursing homes and other assisted living establishments throughout the Twin Cities metro area.  Through visits these unique volunteers bring comfort, learning, and fun to the people they reach.

Facilites interested in arranging visits from these teams should contact (763) 432-4847 for more information.
