How dogs are selected for transport to AHS

Our out-of-state transport program brings hundreds of animals to AHS each month. But how do we choose which dogs to transport to Minnesota? The short answer is, we don't! Our partners follow the "Rule of Thirds" to help us give thousands of animals a second chance at a loving home.

Add preventative care to your spring to-do list

Preventative care is essential to maintaining your pet's overall health, and now is the time to build their routine care into your plans. If you haven't already, call your vet to ensure you have a wellness exam scheduled before summer – then check it off your list!

Don’t let the gray faces fool you – the senior animals at AHS need animal lovers like you, too! With your support, you can help make sure they spend their golden years surrounded by people they know and love. Can our senior animals count on you?

The Walk for Animals celebrates 50 years

For 50 years, animal lovers have come together at the Walk for Animals to celebrate the incredible bond they have with their pets and to make a difference for animals in need. 

On Saturday, May 1, as we celebrate 50 years of walking for animals, we’ll walk for every pet, past and present, who’s warmed our hearts — and all the animals who still need our help.
