The health and wellbeing of every animal in our care is of the utmost importance to us. We strive to provide all of our animals with the absolute best care possible in a shelter setting. It is important to remember that due to the volume of animals that we receive, even the most well-run shelters can be stressful environments for animals. This is why we encourage you to use our rehoming services, reserving surrender to AHS as a last resort. While your pet is here, they will be evaluated medically and behaviorally to ensure that they are healthy and can safely be placed in the community. Animals are then made available for adoption or in some cases transported to one of our shelter partners for adoption.
