About Kindest Cut

Pets are an important part of our lives and families, but maintaining your pet’s health can be difficult when resources are limited.

If more animals were sterilized, there would be far less animal homelessness. Every day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born in the United States. More than 60% of them are unwanted and will be abandoned, oftentimes brought to a shelter or rescue organization. We believe animals in our community deserve better.

Animal Humane Society’s Kindest Cut program offers low-cost spay and neuter surgeries, wellness services, and dental care to cats, dogs and rabbits belonging to families with limited means, and to nonprofit rescues and shelters.

Sterilization surgeries are available via a fully equipped mobile surgical unit, serving over 25 communities in Minnesota, and at the Melrose Animal Clinic at Animal Humane Society’s location in Golden Valley, Minnesota. Melrose Animal Clinic also offers a variety of wellness and dental services.

Kindest Cut has spayed and neutered more than 50,000 pets since it was founded in 2011.

As a founding member of the Minnesota Partnership for Animal Welfare (MnPAW), Animal Humane Society is proud to work with other animal welfare groups to ensure a home for every healthy and treatable companion animal in Minnesota.
