How You can Help!
Adopt a Shelter Animal-When you adopt a shelter pet you give them a second chance in life and a chance in a great, loving home. Our shelter is a No Kill Shelter, but there are several shelters that will destroy animals just because they do not get adopted.
A Rescue Breed is the Best Breed!
Your donation helps us with the care and feeding for the pets at the shelter. Your donation helps us pay for all the dogs shots, testing, medication, spay or neutering, feeding, toys, treats, building material to finish the inside of our new building, and fuel for taking the pet to the vet that is 60 miles away.
Vet Bills-the biggest expense
We do what ever it takes to save the animals. This is Cheyenne and she was attacked by another dog because both were starving and fought over the only food they could find.
We appreciate every dollar that is donated and put it all towards the pets. Thank you for all your support!
We have a donation box in front of our shelter. Location is 27254 Wind Cave Rd. Hot Springs, SD 57747
