A second chance for a special group of dogs

In December, more than 20 lab mixes arrived at AHS in a unique humane investigations case. 

The labs, located on a small homestead in Redwood County, came to AHS in relatively good health. They had names. They were loved. However, their caregiver had become overwhelmed as the dogs continued to reproduce. With his health rapidly deteriorating, he partnered with experts at AHS for emergency assistance.

Thanks to your support, these loving labs received expert medical care and behavior rehabilitation while at AHS.
