Why adopt from AHS?

Animals arrive to our shelters for a variety of reasons, but no matter the circumstances, they’re all patiently waiting for the same things: love, security, and a family to call their own. That’s where you come in.

Rescue Success Story
Minnesota love for Marin

One of the most endearing qualities of the adopters in our community is their ability to see the best in each and every animal. They can look at an animal with physical limitations or behavioral challenges and see a perfect family pet. It's that compassion that allows animals like Marin to come to Minnesota from other parts of the country (or the world in Marin's case) in search of a better life.
