We're Here to Help!
If you have a medical concern with your pet, your first call ideally should be to your family veterinarian. If you have a behavioral concern with your pet, Tri-County Humane Society's dedicated staff is happy to do our best to give advice and/or direct you to available resources. (See training options further down on this page.) Please call us at 320-252-0896, or email email@example.com. (Or you can send a message through our TCHS Facebook page.)
Animal Humane Society, based out of the Twin Cities, has a pet behavior hotline as well as an online form to request help about a pet's behavior issue(s). Click here to access those and see more pet behavior tips.
Human Animal Support Services, powered by American Pets Alive!, has a site where users can search for free or low-cost pet support services such as veterinary care, pet food pantries, temporary pet care, and more.

TCHS is Proud to Announce Partnership With GoodPup Online Training Program
Tri-County Humane Society is excited to announce our partnership with the GoodPup dog training app! GoodPup offers customized, affordable, positive dog training that you can access from the comfort of your home, at a time that works for YOU.
TCHS will get a financial boost from people who try AND stick with this app – which is great for us, but we’re really most excited about the possibility of better-behaved dogs! (And maybe fewer dogs that need new homes due to behavioral issues.) GoodPup offers one week of free training; there is no obligation, and users can cancel at any time.
Here’s what else to know:
• If you’ve ever adopted a dog from TCHS, you can sign up for the GoodPup app, and get a lifetime discount off their services. (This is good for TCHS fosters, volunteers, and staff members, too.) Reach out to TCHS to get your code to unlock your savings! (The information is now in all TCHS adoption bags, too.)
• If you haven’t adopted from TCHS but are still interested in the training, please visit https://links.goodpup.com/shelter/TCHSTraining.
For everyone who keeps up with GoodPup beyond the first week of training, TCHS will receive $50 from the company – whether the dog is from us or not! (Remember, that first week is free.)
We hope this helps some puppies learn how to be good dogs, and also helps some old dogs learn new tricks!
At this time, Tri-County Humane Society does not offer in-house dog training. We often refer customers to the following St. Cloud-area businesses, whom we have worked with in the past. (Note: This is intended to be purely information for customers, not necessarily endorsements.) Obedience classes ARE an important part of bonding with your dog, and they are important for their socialization and manners. Training is a great idea for every pup!
Tri-County Humane Society also does not offer boarding services to the public. We would suggest checking out Rover.com, which can connect people with pet sitters or dog walkers.
Concerns about abuse or neglect
Tri-County Humane Society urges anyone with concerns about potential animal abuse and or neglect cases to contact their local law enforcement. Otherwise, here are other statewide resources:
