The truth about shelter animals

Bringing a new pet into your home is a big decision — one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Minnesotans are lucky to live in state with so many options for animal adoption. Before you adopt a new pet from a shelter, there are a few things you should know.

Sign up your future veterinarian for Shelter Vet Camp

Does your child want to be a veterinarian? Join AHS for Shelter Vet Camp where kids grades 3-8 will immerse themselves in shelter medicine by learning to administer vaccines, perform blood draws, and practice surgery on a pretend patient.
