Note on pet food donations:
Great Plains SPCA has a partnership with Hill’s Pet Nutrition, which allows us to purchase dry Science Diet food as part of a special shelters-only discount program. This means that all of Great Plains SPCA’s homeless pets are fed a premium diet and adopters are sent home with a free 4-lb starter bag of their new pet’s food. We always accept canned food, puppy and kitten formula and Science Diet donations. However, dry non-Science Diet food will service our HERO Team services and collaborations with other local charities.
