Dog in shelter

By supporting Animal Humane Society, you’re helping animals get the second chances they deserve. Your gift directly impacts animals by:

  • Providing medical and behavioral care for animals at our shelters.
  • Educating our community on how to properly care for animals.
  • Rescuing animals from abusive and neglectful situations.
  • Supporting underserved communities with necessary resources to care for their pets.

You can also make a gift in tribute of a person, animal, or special occasion to show you care about your loved ones and the dogs, cats, and critters at AHS.

Charities Review Council

Minnesota Charities Review Council’s Standards of Accountability state that at least 70% of an organization’s annual expenses must be directed toward program activity with no more than 30% for management, general, and fundraising expenses combined. In 2023, Animal Humane Society exceeded this standard by directing 75% of our expenses back into programming and services for animals and the community.
