The power of $1,000

Your phenomenal fundraising efforts make a difference in the lives of animals.

A lifesaving ride
A gift of $1,000 funds the transport of 25 dogs from overcrowded southern shelters to safety in Minnesota.

A brighter future
We’re combatting animal overpopulation with your help. A gift of $1,000 allows us spay 20 cats — that means fewer kittens end up homeless or in shelters.

A second chance
AHS is the only shelter in Minnesota that can provide specialty orthopedic and dental surgeries, X-rays, and ultrasounds — all on-site. A gift of $1,000 provides X-rays for 15 animals in need of diagnosis.
