Kick off your summer with a new canine companion – this is the weekend to adopt a dog from Animal Humane Society!
The number of dog adoptions as of late has been lower than usual, keeping dogs and puppies in our shelters longer than we want or they deserve. We need the community's help to find new homes for our dogs. As an incentive, AHS has special discounts this weekend to encourage people to act now to adopt a dog or puppy.
One weekend only, Saturday and Sunday June 23 and 24, AHS is offering a 20% discount on dog adoption fees and a 10% discount on puppy adoption fees. Adoption fees include vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, free ID tag & collar and more.
Available dogs and puppies can be viewed on our website or in person at any of our five facilities: Buffalo, Coon Rapids, Golden Valley, St. Paul, and Woodbury. Adoption centers are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
For anyone considering adopting a dog, summer is a great time to do it. It’s easier to house train a puppy in the summer. A new canine friend adds to the enjoyment of many summer activities - walks around the lakes, a trip to the cabin, playing outside with the kids. Kids are out of school and can get to know the dog and help take care of it. And, of course, there’s the gratification of giving a shelter dog a fresh start and a new home.
