Shelter Vet Camp

Your mini-veterinarian is invited to Shelter Vet Camp on September 23. Students in grades 5-6 will have the opportunity to practice skills used by shelter veterinarians such as administering “vaccinations,” listening to an animal’s heartbeat and lungs, and watching AHS vet staff in action.

Our Services

Every year Animal Humane Society cares for more than 23,000 animals in need and helps thousands more through programs for people and pets.

Petey's Best Week Ever

Petey was in shelter for almost 7 months before finding a permanent home! Since he was at AHS for so long, we decided to give him a "Forget-Me-Not Fun Day" out on the town!

The best part? Petey was adopted just three days after this, and the long wait proved to be worth it — his new family says he’s spoiled and loved!
