    Start Fundraising TODAY! About Woofstock: The Tri-County Humane Society’s 28th Annual 5k walk for animals will be held at Wilson Park in St. Cloud on September 10th from 9am to 2pm, with the 5k walk kicking off at 10am.  In addition to the 5k walk, the event will include prizes for the top 40 fundraisers and top fundraising team, games for pets and people, food, a silent auction, demos, music, exhibits, a costume contest for pets and people, the annual hotdog eating contest, and much more! Last year we had over 600 enthusiastic pet lovers with close to 300 companion animals join us, and we anticipate even more this year! Our goal is to raise $62,500 for pets in need, and we need your help! Purpose of Woofstock: The Tri-County Humane Society provides services for over 3,000 animals every year. Each pet is evaluated, examined, given appropriate vaccinations and dewormings, spayed/neutered, treated for ailments and injuries as needed, and given lots of TLC. There is no time limit for pets in our care, and provided they pass our health and behavior screening, they will remain in our care as long as necessary to find the perfect match. On average, pets are adopted in less than ten days, and in 2015, we placed 93.5% of the pets that entered our doors in homes—amazing for an open-admission animal shelter! This fundraising event is vital for us to continue providing these important services to pets in need. It is also a really good opportunity for pet-lovers to unite and celebrate the human-animal bond!

Cadillac 33265286 2Today is National Dog Day! While we celebrate the dogs in our lives (go ahead and share your favorite pooch picture on our Facebook page!), let's remember the dogs less fortunate than our own. Cadillac is one such example. This 10 month old mixed breed pup (we're guessing Rottie/Chow Chow mix) was transferred to us from Leech Lake. He needs entropion eyelid surgery on both eyes and treatment for heartworm, Lyme's disease and anaplasmosis (another tickborne disease.) Talk about a "Ruff" start to life! We need to raise approximately $700 to treat this pup, and we're asking for your help. Please consider a donation today!

Remy sick web

After such remarkable progress in recovering from wounds after being shot 6 times near Avon at the end of February, it breaks our heart to let you know that Remy took a turn for the worse and sadly died on April 11th.  On April 7th, he started having seizures and was taken to the local emergency clinic. He was sedated to get the seizures to stop, but as soon as the sedation would start to wear off they would start all over again.  He was seen by 3 vets locally and the recommendation was to have him seen by the neurology department at the U of M Veterinary Medical Clinic.  He was sent to the U of MN on April 11th and died shortly upon arrival. 

Remy was an exceptional dog who touched the lives of many.  Thank you to all who contributed towards his care and well-being, and special thanks to Mike and Erin Strommen for covering his U of M costs. Most importantly, thank you to Gary and Shari Snyder, Remy's foster parents, for loving him as your own pet.

Necropsy results were sent to us late in May and are as follows:   Based on his autopsy, Remington likely had either cryptogenic or idiopathic epilepsy.  The autopsy findings are most consistent with secondary damage to the brain and lungs which was most likely sustained due to the recurrent seizures.  It is possible that Remington had post traumatic epilepsy which is best characterized in humans. This is impossible to prove, but the timing of his signs

Trixie webI'm Trixie, also known as Trixie Bear or Good Girl.  I came a long way to be able to find my forever home. I first started in Pasadena, California where I was enjoying the warm weather. Before I knew it, I was on a plane with my closest friends from the Pasadena Shelter and on my way to Saint Cloud, Minnesota. I was in the Tri-County Humane Society for a little under a week before I found my new parents. Life is great! I'm getting over my fear of men, and although it took me a little while to get used to my new family, I sure do love them now! Some of my favorite things are sleeping, snuggling up in warm blankets, playing with my favorite elephant toy, walking across my mom's laptop while she's working, and of course munching on treats! I am so thankful for all the love and help Tri County Humane Society gave me.
