I had the most phenomenal experience at Great Plains - it’s so clear how much they care about their animals and how much they really know them. Ken, Maggie and Wit you were all just incredible. Baloo has already made himself at home and we can’t wait to see him blossom and grow (with the help of some Great Plains behavior classes of course!)

I had a great experience. I found the newest member of my family, and thought the facility and staff were great. I’ve volunteered at a couple of SPCAs, and these guys were awesome. Well informed, facility was clean and comfortable, they gave me all of the information I needed to take with my new pup. I don’t plan on adopting again for quite some time, but they have won me over. I will be back.

We absolutely LOVED our experience finding our newest family member! The staff gave expert care and guidance to help us find the perfect fit for our household. The indoor greet rooms made spending time with different animals comfortable. Ken was awesome! Claira made sure we were super informed. We will certainly be back in the future.

Eight years ago we adopted the dearest little dog, Ralphie. He was a joy in every way and Great Plains made it a wonderful experience. We decided to adopt our new dog, Jingle, on 12/23/2020 so that she would be home for Christmas. Again, the people at Great Plains were so kind and helpful. Our second experience was as joy-filled as the first. We thank Great Plains for the wonderful work that they do!!!

Very happy with our experience! Adopted two large bonded dogs, Rocky and Bullwinkle. Attention getting names but renamed by our family. Liked that the staff checked but realized the dogs needed to be together. Only one adoption fee so more money for food and toys! Staff friendly and helpful! Return visit for vet help on stomach upset. Given free visit and medications and problem solved. The dogs weren't even upset by the return visit because they like the staff! Thanks for all that you do Great Plains SPCA. We love our big new furry guys!

I took in a pregnant cat that ended up having 9 kittens. I was totally overwhelmed and couldn't find homes. I made so many calls and sent tons of emails. Somehow I ended up getting ahold of great Plains. They SAVED my life. They took the kittens that I couldn't keep. They made sure mom and 1 kitten that I'm keeping got fixed and had shots. They helped with food and litter, even some toys. They were AMAZING. If I ever need another animal or help they will be my first call. I can't explain how wonderful this organization is. My kitties and I ARE FOREVER grateful.
