Instead of addressing my concerns and issues they willing took back my adoption as it was an easy flip for financial gains. Sad. Annoying as I'm a Senior who is still working as I can't afford to retire until 70. The interviewer was cold and detached. No compassion or coaching. Do Not Recommend Woodbury Location. 2 Thumbs DOWN.
It is a great nonprofit organization. They work very hard. They are also honest and good person. It is very difficult to serve this type subject but they do it perfectly with responsibly. They take better asset to their community. They always create new idea and also apply it. If anyone tell about any kind of negative things, it's not true. I think it is one of the most important for all of ours. So thanks AHS for their activate.
I have volunteered with the Animal Humane Society of Golden Valley for several years, both on the adoption floors and in the surgery room. I can assure you that it is NOT a kill shelter. Animals stay with AHS until they are adopted. The staff at the Humane Society are very caring and will go to the ends of the earth to make sure that each and every animal finds a happy "forever home". They also have several programs that help shy pets grow more accustomed to humans: Project Pit Bull and Courageous Kitties. I can certainly debunk Pamela's assertion that the Golden Valley Humane Society is a kill shelter, because it is not. They take every single animal into their care that is brought to them and will NEVER kill an animal because they don't have enough room for it. That is simply absurd.
I am not in agreement with the positive feedback from others. This shelter is a kill shelter and the funds seem to be used to glorify the organization, the top officials and not for the animals. Very expensive and they do not do anything other than health checks
The Animal Humane Society does such wonderful work! They are a caring and dedicated group of staff and volunteers. I have a cat my mom adopted from the Society years ago - - he's now 22 years old! He is such a joy. I've participated in the Walk for Animals the last 10 years, and am looking forward to next year's Walk. If you spend any time at the Society, you can see first hand the wonderful care given to these animals. And not only do they provide support for our community, they help other communities across the country due to natural disasters and other hardships. A wonderful organization!
I adopted a dog from the Animal Humane Society in the spring of 2012. I could not be more pleased or satisfied with my experience. My dog originally came from an overcrowded shelter in Alabama, and the AHS accepted her and several other pets that didn't have a home or potential adopters down south. Despite being a few pounds underweight, she was healthy and happy when I adopted her. She had all her shots, was tested for heartworm (negative), tested and treated for worms, and was recently spayed. The AHS sterilizes ALL dogs and cats before adoption to help reduce pet overpopulation. She was also clean and I could tell she was loved and well cared for during her short stay at the shelter. My family and friends have always adopted their pets from the Animal Humane Society, and I will continue to be a donor and client because the work they do is nothing short of amazing.
This is a very wonderful, worthy nonprofit organization. They have new and innovative ideas. Some of these ideas have been implemented and are making a difference.
I am a donor/ Client Served/ General Member of the public. It's a shame that there are so many outpoken people who are negative to the AHS. They do wonderful work for both the community and the animals they serve. It is a difficult time for everyone with the economy and they are just one of the organizations that are trying to help make a difference to so many lives, both animal and people. They not only help unwanted/stray animals they help with education in the community and strive to provide enrichment programs to local organizations (schools and therapy). We can ill afford to put down such a dedicated group of people who work so tirelessly to serve so many.
I will ALWAYS continue to help support this organization both financially and through my speech and actions. I hope others will speak up for themselves and stop letting the minority speak for the majority through default!
These people should be ashamed of themselves. If you cannot help then I challenge you to help find a solution and stop just protesting. The old addage that if you aren't part of the solution then you are part of the problem definately applies.
Review from Guidestar
I am volunteer who rescues dogs from the Leech Lake Indian Reservation in northern Minnesota. I began partnering with the Animal Humane Society in May of this year and it has become a beautiful partnership.
Every person I have worked with has been professional, kind and most of all, every one of them has an undying passion for saving every animal they can and for those they cannot, making their last days on this earth as good as they can be.
I would not be able to do what I do without them.
I have attached a link to a blog I wrote about my partnership with AHS.

I've attended classes, volunteered and adopted family pets from the Animal Humane Society since I was a kid (30+ years). It is a wonderful, compassionate organization that truly cares about animal welfare.
Review from CharityNavigator
I volunteer now, but have been a customer in the past. I got my cat there about 8 years ago, and my husband says there has never been, or will ever be, 2 beings that love each other more. Now I'm giving back my time and getting to know canines, so that I can soon make an informed decision on my first dog companion!
AHS is no perfect, because animal welfare is not either. Of course I wish there was no euthaniasia, but I know AHS does as well. It's a necessary evil, and their funding supports education and programs aimed at reducing population and 100% placement rates.
They're a wonderful organization filled with caring, selfless people and adoring animals! They even take in wildlife.
