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.
