Make a Donation - Be a Hero for Pets!

We need you! Every day, Great Plains SPCA works to make the lives of community pets better by reuniting lost pets with their owners, rescuing homeless animals and providing lifesaving community programs. We could not do this work without the generous contributions of people just like you.

With your support, last year we were able to:

  • Admit nearly 6,000 animals into our facilities
  • Adopt out almost 4,000 animals
  • Reunite more than 1,000 animals with their owners
  • Provide foster care to over 1,000 animals
  • Provide education and assistance to more than 2,000 families and their pets through our HERO outreach program
  • Distribute nearly 40,000 pounds of pet food through our Pet Food Pantry

Your tax-deductible donation helps us continue the critical hands-on work we do for the animals that come through our doors each day. Together we can continue to make a difference in lives of animals and the people who love them.

Additional ways to give...

Poppy Medical Memorial Fund

The Poppy Medical Memorial Fund was started in 2015 to honor a very special dog who came to Great Plains SPCA’s Veterinary Care Center after being hit by a train. Poppy’s injuries were severe, and it was only through the support of the community that she was able to receive lifesaving surgery and loving care.

Despite receiving the best care possible, Poppy’s injuries proved to be too extensive for her to recover and live a quality life. Our staff held her close in their arms as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge and never will we forget the imprint she left of our hearts. Her legacy lives on through the Poppy Medical Memorial Fund.

Donations to this fund will enable us to provide emergency medical treatment to future pets in crisis who need us… pets just like Poppy. Will you be a Hero?

There are so many ways to help the thousands of homeless pets that visit Great Plains SPCA each year – we couldn’t do it without you!  Many people think we are a chapter of the ASPCA, but we are a local, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization helping local pets. We rely on local dollars to help local pets and the families by their side. To schedule a tour to see our lifesaving operation in action, please call (913) 808-3425.
