Here is Vicki Davis, Executive Director, speaking on behalf of the support Advanced Care Pet Hospital provides for Tri-County Humane Society. In 24 months since opening in 2009, we have seen over 400 pets for our local humane society. Click on the arrow in the picture to play.
Advanced Care Pet Hospital takes an active role in supporting
our local Humane Society - Tri-County Humane Society.
We frequently spay and neuter kittens, cats, puppies and dogs and when Tri-County's internal surgery resources are maxed out. In addition we also provide urgent care services when they have the need.
These services Advanced Care Pet Hospital provides are priced at or below cost. Since opening in December of 2009 we have seen close to 500 pets from TCHS. (478 as of 1/22/2012). We donate items for fund raising auctions and events and maintain a booth at the summer/fall fund raiser.
We believe in the work they do and the role they play in our community.
Our little booth at the Woofstock fundraiser.
The Tri-County Humane Society's Companion Walk was a big success. This year's theme was "Woofstock," a play on the infamous Woodstock event held in Bethel New York, August of 1969.
Peace, Love and tie-dye was in abundance.
Even on the pets, here was my personal single favorite, however there were many more animals adorned in the classic colors.
The weather was beautiful and attendance was very good.
There was fun for all including this Pot Belly Pig who qualified in it's effort to complete the agility course.
At Advanced Care Pet Hospital we proudly endorse the efforts of the Tri-County Humane Society.
On January 29th 2010, Suzie and Bart, two of the dogs rescued in the recent puppy mill raid in Minnesota were brought to Advanced Care for Dentals.
In addition to his dental, Bart also received a neuter. Dr Gerds elected to provide a Foster Home for Suzie until she is more prepared for her spay.
Bart and Suzie came through their dental cleanings with flying colors. Bart had to have several teeth removed due to the neglect.
Tri-County Humane received seven of the small breed dogs from the Twin Cities Shelter after the raid. We found it admirable that Tri-County would have these rescue dogs receive dental care before adopting them out.
These two are just adorable. Both are more than a little shaken by their ordeal but both were very receptive to attention.
I had Bart on my lap after his dental. He is being well cared for and is a wonderful companion.
Suzie is with us for a month in Foster Care.
She is out and about and learning what life is like outside "the box."
At the moment Suzie is now learning what it is to be a pet again.
Remember the trainer in the movie Seabiscuit, when he says, Seabiscuit just has to learn how to be a horse again?
This is Suzie, she's re-learning what it is to be a companion again. She is learning like a newborn movie star.
"It isn't about the speed, it's about the heart."
Suzie is shy, unsure of herself and generally a feared about activities and interactions in general. I can say with without reservation she is responding to foster care in an outstanding manner. She is becoming a beautiful pet.

In recognition of the bond between humans and animals, the Tri-County Humane Society (TCHS) exists to practice and promote humane principles, compassionate care, and the prevention of cruelty to animals. This society serves the community (mainly Central MN), both animals and people, primarily by providing quality care and adoption services for animals in need, offering educational programs to encourage the awareness, understanding and practice of humane principles, and handling questions and complaints regarding animal care and behavior, including alleged cruelty, and neglect cases
The Tri-Humane Society is currently looking for good homes to foster dogs and cats. Most situations involve pregnant and nursing animals, but sometimes it is for an animal recovering from an upper respiratory infection (similar to a cold) or an injury. If you are interested, call the shelter (320-252-0896).
One of our newest programs is for fostering cat/kittens until room opens up at the shelter. That would involve fostering the cats/kittens during peak periods (Summer to Fall) and returning them in Jan/Feb when there are not as many cats up for adoption.
We are also looking for people to be put on a list for situations where someone is being called to active military duty and can't find anyone to take care of their pet while they are gone. Foster homes may be needed in disaster situations when people are without a place to stay as well.
Call the shelter if you are interested in ANY of these foster opportunities.Link to the Tri-County Humane Society Find a Pet Page
