Our Mission

We’ve been around since 1903. Even back then, lawmakers recognized the importance of dedicating one state agency solely to protecting the health of one of Minnesota’s most valued resources: animals. A century later, the Minnesota Board of Animal Health’s mission remains the same.

Our office is located in St. Paul, but most of the people we serve and animals we help to keep healthy live elsewhere. From Kittson to Houston County and everywhere between, we have someone right around the corner who can help.

Our Partners

We shouldn’t do it alone, and we don’t. Our partners are valued colleagues who provide insight into the issues of today and support our mission to safeguard animal health. Learn more about Minnesota’s unique arrangement of agriculture, animal health and public health working together.
