Minnesota Federated Humane Societies was first established as a nonprofit organization in 1987. Since that time, we have worked tirelessly towards fulfilling our core mission: bringing justice to animals in Minnesota who cannot speak and advocate for themselves through our network of state humane agents.
Minnesota Federated Humane Societies is the only animal welfare organization authorized under Minnesota statutes to train and appoint state agents in all Minnesota counties and to conduct investigations into cases of animal abuse and neglect across the state. In 1987, the Minnesota legislature passed a law that allowed our organization to be established. We now have state humane agents in many counties across the state and work with sheriff's offices, police departments, animal control departments, county prosecutors, veterinarians and other nonprofits to protect animals who are abused, neglected and victims of cruelty.
Although the work we do can be sad and tragic, it is important. Without our organization, our dedicated team of state humane agents and our staff and other professionals who also do this hard work, our state will be a harsher and crueler place for all of us, not just animals. Join us in our mission and in our effort to make Minnesota a safer place for animals and to bring abused and neglected animals across the state the justice that they deserve.
