AHS joins 'Socially Conscious Sheltering' movement

The new movement is based on eight core principles which lead to the best outcomes for animals and serve as a guide for animal welfare organizations across the country. While AHS has modeled these values for years, we're proud to be the first shelter in Minnesota to formally join this movement.

Help prevent your pet from being lost forever

It’s estimated that one in three pets will go missing in their lifetime. By taking the right steps — like using visible and current pet identification and knowing who to contact for help — you can reduce those odds and help ensure a happy reunion in the event your companion gets lost.

Pet identification: What does our community know?

If your four-legged friend goes missing, do you have a plan? Animal Humane Society stopped by a popular dog-walking spot in Minneapolis to see what pet owners know about microchips, ID tags, and locating a lost animal.

Be sure you're prepared should the unthinkable happen. Find our more about the importance of pet identification and what to do if you lose (or find) a pet.
