Animal Humane Society is a private nonprofit organization that serves Minnesota and the Twin Cities metro area. We do not receive any city, county, state, or federal funding. Most of the funds necessary to operate our organization are raised through donations and bequests, special events such as the Walk for Animals, adoption fees, and merchandise sales in our adoption centers. AHS is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our employer identification number (tax ID) is 41-0693842.
Minnesota Charities Review Council’s Standards of Accountability state that at least 70 percent of an organization’s annual expenses must be directed toward program activity with no more than 30 percent for management, and general and fundraising expenses combined. In 2017, Animal Humane Society exceeded this standard by directing 78 percent of our expenses back into programming and services for animals and the community.
