Special announcement
AHS will pause services November 2-9

Animal Humane Society will pause all services and close its shelters and veterinary centers November 2-9. Our Pet Helpline will be closed, and no adoption, surrender, or veterinary appointments will be scheduled during that week. Training classes and private sessions will also be rescheduled. 

Adoption

Changes to our adoption process

While our adoption centers remain closed to the public, we’ve updated our adoption by appointment process to welcome adopters back into our shelters to meet all of the available animals before making an adoption decision.

AHS responds to surge in demand for veterinary services

Animal Humane Society's Veterinary Centers, located in Golden Valley and St. Paul, are helping more pets than ever as the need for low-cost pet care surges. Much of the increase in demand for vet services can be attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A better world for animals is a better world for us all

Animals bring us joy, comfort, and unconditional love everyday. Their companionship, especially during times of crisis, can be critical to our health and well-being — and sometimes even life saving. 

As long as there are animals who need us, AHS will be there. Because a better world for animals, is a better world for us all.
