We have seen virtually every situation, whether it is an outside dog living year-round without proper shelter; a pet owner who loves their pet, but cannot afford to buy pet food, or community cats who need to be spayed or neutered. Many of the animals served through this program have owners with limited financial resources – yet many have huge hearts. With a little education on how to better meet the needs of their pets, and the importance of spaying and neutering, we have been able to turn some “less than ideal” situations into success stories.

Please contact our HERO Outreach Team at lhacker@greatplainsspca.org for more information, if you are concerned about a pet in the community, or if you know of a pet who needs:

  • Food assistance to keep from going hungry
  • Shelter or straw for appropriate outdoor housing
  • Relief from being chained
  • Community Cat Trap Neuter Return information and support
  • Advice for behavioral issues

Through education and advocacy our team strives to build awareness, address community concerns, and help reduce pet overpopulation.
