100 classes and counting

Training your dog is not only a great way to help with your pet’s manners, it also helps build a strong bond with your furry companion. Derek and his dog Colby are a prime example. Even though they’ve graduated from Animal Humane Society’s Training School, they keep coming back for more! Watch a video of the pair who have attended more than 100 training classes at AHS.

Waiting is the hardest part

Anytime someone visits an AHS adoption center in search of an older animal that’s having a difficult time finding a home, our hearts skip a beat. Although we celebrate every adoption, we are especially overjoyed to see animals like Frannie adopted. The 11-year-old cat spent time in four of our five shelters over the course of several months, and was continually overlooked by potential adopters. But all that waiting paid off when she found the perfect human companion who appreciates her sassiness and quirks.

Kindest Cut

Spring is in the air! While many of us welcome the warmer weather, it can bring some unwanted things for our pets — including ticks and an increased risk of heartworm. Qualified pet owners can make sure their animals are protected with heartworm medication and flea and tick preventatives from Kindest Cut, a program of Animal Humane Society. Kindest Cut offers wellness and preventative care for pet owners with limited incomes. Learn more about these and other wellness services offered by Kindest Cut.
