Finding a Way to Help

Since late November, animal welfare organizations throughout Greater Minnesota have come together to find a way to help 30 cats of the Animal Humane Society's Partner Placement list. Cats who land at one of the four humane society locations are evaluated for placement; some who are experiencing shelter stress or who are very shy are not cats the humane society believes they can support on the adoption floors of their shelters, so they offer these cats to partner rescues to try to find the cats help and therefore avoid euthanizing them.

Coping with the Cold

WHAT a week! Wednesday morning last week at Home for Life®: temperature was -34 degrees! Our overnight staff who lives east of us recorded -41 degrees at her house. This is the air temperature - the wind chill is far worse. With 200 animals at our facility, Home for Life® doesn't have the option to close. We are so grateful to our staff who have braved the arctic cold to come to work and take care of dogs and cats, birds and even Goliath our tortoise.
