Success Stories

They need homes — as many wonderful, loving homes for them as possible!

With assistance from our supporters and Program Partners, the Reservation Animal Rescue program provides food, blankets, toys and treats for both dogs and cats, helps fund mobile spay and neuter clinics, cares for stray and orphaned animals, and places them in foster care. The importance of getting them healthy cannot be over-emphasized. They need homes — as many wonderful, loving homes for them as possible!

Resources to rescue stray and injured animals are one of the many inequities faced by Native Americans today.
