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.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is a national animal welfare organization out of Washington D.C. focusing on education, advocacy and political action on behalf of animals. They do not operate shelters or provide services to the public in our local communities.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) is an animal welfare organization based in New York City. Their direct work with animals is at the shelter they operate in NYC and through anti-cruelty missions across the country. They do provide funding and services that can aid local shelters, but they don’t provide shelter or direct care to animals in our communities.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is a national animal welfare organization that focuses on advocacy, rescue and education regarding animals found on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. Their offices are located in Virginia, Washington D.C. and California. They do not operate shelters or provide services to the public in our local communities.
