Saving The Rez Dogs
Keep this in mind. We are not a typical rescue operation. We operate like a disaster relief organization. We are moving to safety numbers like that.
The stray and unwanted dog population on Pine Ridge and Rosebud is staggering for sure. It is a disaster that has been a hundred years in the making. We are seeing a difference, but we have a ways to go. Spay and neuter clinics will be happening this summer...and that is great for the owned animals whose families will bring them in...but the only way to get a handle on the future is to remove large numbers of puppies and dogs that no one owns...that no one will take to a clinic.
Over 1200 dogs and cats have been rescued since the first of the year. All of these animals saw a Vet....all legally crossed state lines to new lives on a state-required Health Certificate.
Our small town Vets are extremely generous in the amount of time and care they give the Reservation dogs....almost always without appointments and many times after hours. Regular payments is all they ask. And thanks to you we are able to do that.
All three of these clinics accept payments by phone and mail.

Thanks so much.
The family at the residence discovered her and her babies right after they were born…It was already and probably immediately too late for two of them.
Took her into their home until the snow covered roads could be cleared and Marian and her daughter Maria could get there last night.
Mama Meeka is a good and sweet mama shown here making sure we have them all. We do Mama.
Thanks for donating to him. Your gifts are important to all of us, especially all of the dogs and puppies! Without your support and compassion, we couldn't save as many as we do.
