The greatest gift of all

For animals in need, your kindness and generosity provide the most important gift of all — a second chance.


$25 Warm and fuzzy

As a stray cat, Brianna had never had a bed or toys of her own. On cold nights she had no way to stay warm. A gift of $25 helps animals like Brianna feel cozy and loved by providing a comfortable bed, soft blankets, and plenty of toys.

Adrian the puppy

$50 A healthy start

Puppies like Adrian love to bounce, pounce, and play. But at only 8-weeks-old, he’s more susceptible to life-threatening diseases. A gift of $50 provides vaccinations to protect him from preventable illnesses while he grows big and strong. 

Newborn kitten

$100 Care for orphaned newborns

When newborn kittens like Jules arrive in our shelter without a mother, they require around-the-clock attention. Your gift of $100 ensures we have bottles, specialty formula, and all the supplies we need to provide neonatal care.


$500 A lifesaving ride

Anita traveled thousands of miles to find a loving home. The senior Chihuahua was overlooked again and again in an overcrowded shelter in California. A generous gift of $500 helps transport animals to AHS. After a lifetime of being unnoticed, Anita was adopted in one hour and 31 minutes from our Coon Rapids shelter. 


$1,000 Safe and sound

Bruce didn’t know what it felt like to be loved. He lived in a home with more than 100 other cats, and didn’t receive the care he deserved. With a gift of $1,000 you’ll support humane investigation efforts to rescue animals from cruelty and neglect. Now Bruce is a beloved pet and the center of attention in his new home.

One-eyed chihuahua

A second chance

You’re the hero behind every second chance at Animal Humane Society. Your generosity has saved lives and helped make families whole. A gift of any amount makes a difference in the lives of shelter animals, because for them it’s more than a donation — it’s a second chance.
