NOTE: To protect the health and safety of our staff and the community we serve, AHS has temporarily modified our adoption process. For details, visit https://www.animalhumanesociety.org/adoption/how-adoption-works.
Animal Humane Society's friendly adoption staff will work with you to find the right dog, cat, or critter for your home. Get started by checking our online adoption listings (updated every 20 minutes) or stop by one of our four adoption centers in the Twin Cities metro area, including Coon Rapids, Golden Valley, St. Paul, and Woodbury.
If you wish to put an animal on hold or to adopt an animal from AHS, you must be present at an AHS adoption center. We will not put animals on an adoption hold via a phone or email request.
It's important you spend time getting to know prospective pets. If you have questions or wish to visit with an animal, just ask a staff member or volunteer for assistance.
If you find an animal you wish to adopt, we’ll sit down for an informal consultation to ensure that you and the pet you’ve selected are a good match. During this process we'll also review the animal’s medical and behavioral records, explain policies and services available to adopters, and help you choose the right pet supplies.
