A better world for animals‌ because of you



Pippin is a beagle/chow/dachshund mix who came into the Animal Humane Society as part of a cruelty case. AHS humane agents rescued him and fifty other neglected dogs from a hoarding situation in northern Minnesota. Because of his special needs, AHS turned to Retrieve a Golden of Minnesota (RAGOM) who helped place Pippin in his new home with owner Devon and golden retriever Chas, an AHS alumnus.

They say every picture tells a story. Each of the animals that come though our doors has a story to tell – often with many chapters. There’s the story of an unwanted border collie that was left at our afterhours drop-off. Or the story of a stray calico cat that needed surgery to get back on her feet. Or the story of a shy Labrador that needed to rebuild his trust and confidence. Or simply the story of a beloved pet whose owners found themselves unable to care for her. But the pictures we love the best are the ones you see throughout this report – the pictures that tell the stories of the cherished pets and the people who opened their hearts and homes to them. What completes the story is you – your generosity and your commitment to the work that we do. Your belief that the humane treatment of animals is a measure of our compassion as a community and that the human-animal bond is a gift that inspires and unites all of us. Because of you we can all celebrate the accomplishments of the past year – a reduction in the numbers of animals that came into our facilities, an increase in adoptions and placements and, as a result, a reduction in the rate of euthanasia. Sadly, there is a still a heartbreaking disparity between the number of animals the community surrenders to us and the number of homes willing to adopt them. Achieving a better balance for animals drives our work every day. With your continued support we look to a day when there is a happy home for every adoptable animal. That is a story we can all look forward to telling.

Reduction of euthanasia Because of you, we were able to reduce the number of animals coming to us, increase the numbers of placements and, as a result, reduce the rate of animals humanely euthanized by seven percent. Because of you, our efforts were directed to providing medical services and enrichments that brought comfort to the animals that were in our care.

Nourishment, treatment of his injuries and gentle care from foster volunteers was all it took to bring back his sweet disposition. Now, he swims with Justin and trots alongside him on bike rides. He’s a favorite dog in the neighborhood and at the dog park. Because of you, we were able to find Jager a new home and he is now living the life he deserves.

Foster volunteers took 3,359 animals with special needs into their homes for care prior to adoption.

The Adoption Preparation program, which readies shy or fearful animals for adoption, helped 1,027 dogs and 230 cats develop the confidence to live happily in a family.

Through the new Double the Love program that allows families to adopt two cats for one adoption fee 768 cats were placed in new homes.

AHS developed a lost-andfound online bulletin board on its website to assist owners in locating their missing pets.

Humane euthanasia – 10,855 AHS is an open admission organization with a strong belief in providing services for all people and animals in need. Sadly, many animals come to us that we cannot safely and responsibly place in homes. In addition, there are many more animals surrendered by the community than there are people in the community choosing to adopt them. In 2009 AHS staff made the very difficult decision to euthanize 10,855 companion animals. In addition, people sought our services for end-of-life euthanasia for 3,151 animals in place of private veterinary services. Companion animal euthanasia by status

Partnerships The Animal Humane Society is a founding member of Minnesota Partnership for Animal Welfare (MnPAW), a coalition of animal welfare organizations in Minnesota and the Minnesota Horse Welfare Coalition. AHS is also a member of the National Federation of Humane Societies and Pet Shelters Across America. AHS collaborates with nearly seventy animal welfare organizations in Minnesota, the University of Minnesota Veterinary School, animal rescues in Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Georgia and Iowa and municipal animal control authorities throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

Imagine a world where fewer animals seek shelter with us. Imagine a world where every neglected animal has a home to call his own. Imagine a world where every companion animal has a companion to love him. How can we settle for less?
