Every year Animal Humane Society cares for more than 22,000 animals in need and helps thousands more through programs for people and pets.
Due to COVID-19, our shelters are closed to the general public. Services are available by appointment only. As one of the nation's leading animal welfare organizations, AHS is transforming the way shelters care for animals and engage their communities. From innovative medical and behavior programs to investments in outreach and advocacy, we’re advancing animal welfare and creating a more humane world for animals everywhere.
More than a shelter
Our three Twin Cities adoption centers are more than just a great place to find and adopt the perfect pet. Friendly animal experts at each location offer services and support for every stage of an animal’s life. Plus, we work with individuals and organizations across Minnesota and beyond, advocating for the health and safety of animals, no matter where they are.
