Rescue Reservation Dogs
Help treat and transport dogs from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to rescue shelters so they can be adopted into forever homes!
Extreme poverty on Native American reservations makes life difficult for both humans and their animal companions. There are often not enough tribal resources to provide social services for the resident population, and even less for animal welfare. On the two million acre Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, there is not a single veterinarian or animal shelter, but Lakota Animal Care (LAC) is working tirelessly to fill this void. RedRover is partnering with LAC to establish a pilot program that will save animal lives by rescuing and treating dogs in need, then transporting them to partner animal shelters to be placed for adoption.
Once in the compassionate hands of the RedRover volunteers, dogs will receive health and behavior assessments, medical treatment (including vaccinations and other needed medications), food, water, and the special one-on-one care that RedRover volunteers are trained to provide. RedRover volunteers will then transport these rescued dogs to partner animal shelters in Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, and South Dakota, where the dogs will be available for adoption into a safe, permanent, loving home.
You can help today. Just $35 provides treatment and transportation for one rescued reservation dog.
