Opening your heart and home to an animal can be life changing. Stories of how pets impact humans are joyful, exhilarating, inspiring, and sometimes even heart breaking. Here are ten adoption stories from 2020 we loved reading. We hope they make you smile (and maybe cry happy tears too).

Kick a few bad habits with specialty training courses

Some dogs just can't contain their excitement. They might jump on guests when they visit or do a few destructive laps around the house when you return home from errands. Good news! AHS is hosting two specialty workshops ― Four on the Floor and and Control Yourself ― that will teach you how to help your dog build better habits. 


Your support means more than ever

This year was hard. For so many people, and for so many reasons. Despite all the unknowns we confronted in 2020, your love, support, and dedication were constant for the animals in our shelters.

They’re still counting on you to receive the care they need and the second chances they deserve. The 11 dogs in this video are proof of the life-changing impact your support has on animals in need.
