Woofie, a 3-year-old terrier mix, visited KARE 11 to remind folks that summer is a great time to add a new canine companion to your family!
The number of dog adoptions as of late has been lower than usual at Animal Humane Society 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.
Adoptable 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 fees include vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, free ID tag & collar and more.
For anyone considering adopting a dog, summer is a great time to do it for many reasons. It's easier to house train a puppy in the summer. A new canine friend adds to the enjoyment of many summer activities including walks around the lakes, a trip to the cabin, or playing outside with the kids. Also, 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.
