Walk 2010

Why do you do the Walk for Animals?
That short walk that goes miles and miles and miles for animals is just a few short months away. The Animal Humane Society Walk for Animals is on Saturday, May 1 and we at AHS want to know: Why do you do the Walk?

Is it because you adopted your best friend at AHS? Or do you simply enjoy being able to help out so many animals less fortunate than your own? No matter the reason, we want to hear from you!

Tell us why you did the Walk for Animals last year or every year. Your story may be used to promote the Walk and could possibly even land you a spot on a Fox 9 or Cities 97 broadcast.

While you’re thinking, take a look at why our friends at Fox 9 do the Walk for Animals…

Tell us by video or tell us in writing. Why do you do the Walk? Submit your stories to YouWalked@animalhumanesociety.org.

Keep watching Pet Dish for more information on this stand-up-on-you-hind-legs and bark event. Online fundraising beings early February!


EmmaEmma, many dogs available
Volunteers and staff at Animal Humane Society Woodbury added one more item to their holiday wish list this past December, “A new home for Emma.” Unfortunately, their holiday wish wasn’t granted and Emma still waits for a new home.

Emma, a black Labrador retriever mix, arrived at AHS in early November after being found by a family. She was roaming their neighborhood. The family posted flyers and when no one rang their bell to pick her up, they knew they had to bring her to a place where she could find a home.

Although she’s been in shelter for several months, her spirits are still high and she’s showing everyone who meets her the incredible energy she has for life. When most of us were grumbling about the recent winter storms, Emma was taking AHS Volunteer Mike Vallante for a run through the snowbanks. (read more about Emma...)

Get smart about animals
One of the most important things you can do to make the world a better place for animals is to keep educating yourself and help others understand about caring for animals. One of the greatest places to start is with your own family. Join us at Animal Humane Society for one or all of these educational events... 


New Year

A few New Year’s resolutions for your pet
The New Year gives new life to our hopes and dreams, our wants and wishes. This year, don’t forget your pet as you begin to check your New Year’s resolutions off the list. Put a little spring in his step with these tips...


Free introduction to AHS training
TrainingStart the New Year off right for you and your dog and attend a free Introduction to Pet Dog Training class at AHS. In the class you’ll learn about training your pup through our Levels training program. No registration necessary. Simply show up on the next scheduled date—it’s fun, informational and free! See our Events calendar for upcoming sessions at our locations throughout the Twin Cities metro area.

“Local escape artist returns home”
MicrochipThat could be the headline to your story if you have your pet microchipped. If your pet is ever lost, your chances of finding him/her significantly improve if s/he is microchipped—given a permanent form of identification. AHS provides a convenient, low-cost microchipping service. Simply make an appointment by calling (763) 489-2222 or stop by an upcoming Chip ‘n’ Nail Clinic.
