Animal Humane Society proudly partners with other shelters and rescue organizations to provide medical services and placement options that help thousands of animals find new homes each year.
More than 40 local rescue organizations partner with AHS to place animals that animals who experience high levels of fear, anxiety, and stress in shelter environments. Last year, AHS transferred 255 such animals — 1.5% of our total placement number — to our placement partners.

Veterinary center clients
More than 100 Minnesota shelters and rescue organizations receive low-cost spay/neuter and medical services through AHS veterinary centers. Learn more about veterinary services available to rescue organizations.
Animal Humane Society works with dozens of other shelters and animal welfare organizations, including the ASPCA and HSUS, to transport animals from across the country. In addition, AHS sends a transport team directly to source shelters to bring animals back to Minnesota. These animals come from communities that are often overwhelmed with animal homelessness and are lacking critical resources and funding.
Last year, more than 7,000 animals were transported to AHS from another shelter or agency in search of a new home. Learn more about our transport program.
