Review from Guidestar

I am a national shelter reform advocate - use that as your guide in weighing what I write. This is a very high-kill organization comprised of 5 shelters under the umbrella of the Golden Valley main office of AHS. As of 2008, 40.2% of the animals coming in the front, never made it back out. Roughly 70% of the revenue goes to pay very high salaries and over 400 employees. You decide for yourself if that's the "bang for your buck" you want. My advice? Find some local rescue groups who do better work, don't kill and never draw a salary. Your donation would go directly to saving lives, not perpetuating this killing industry.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire the CEO and other executives, update the anitquated housing facilities, rely more on high-caliber volunteers from business schools and local state rescuers who have great experience but are not allowed to work with AHS under the current leadership.
