Change lives from your couch

Sampson the St. Bernard

Let’s face it, most of us are spending a lot more time at home at these days. As a result, many are finding it hard to feel connected and empowered. But don’t be fooled, as long as you love animals you’ll always have the power to make a difference.

Here are three FREE ways you can help animals without even getting up from your couch:

  1. Spread the word and become an animal advocate. When it comes to animal welfare, spreading the word means spreading love for animals. What’s better than that! Promote adoptable animals on social media, write a review for your favorite local shelter, or sign up to be an animal advocate. You’ll receive periodic updates from AHS to keep you informed about issues that impact companion animals in the state of Minnesota and how you can advocate on behalf of the dogs, cats, and critters that need our help.
  2. Help protect the future generations of animals by including AHS in your will. You can support AHS in the future without paying a cent today using this free tool to write your legal will. It’s an easy way to protect the animals in our community and when you name AHS in your estate plans, you’ll be eligible for our Loved for Life program, which ensures your pets will always be cared for.
  3. Create second chances with Amazon SmileOkay, technically shopping isn’t free, but the added benefit of helping animals while you shop is! Designate AHS as your charity of choice on, and 0.5% of all eligible purchases will be donated directly to animals in need. It’s a small amount, but it really adds up to make a big difference in our shelters.

So go ahead — spend the day cuddling on the couch with your pet — you can still be a hero for animals in need.
