We are an all-volunteer organization, which is why we need individuals like you. Volunteering and fostering are two great ways to help animals in our community.

As a non-profit organization, our services are funded almost entirely by donations. Since we are an all-volunteer shelter, all donations directly help animals in need.

Although every animal is different in his or her own way, they all share a common need: a loving family in a good home. The adoption process is simple and the rewards are beyond measure.

Beginning in April, the Western Plains Animal Refuge office will be located in the Hadley Center in Hays. This office will provide a location for adoptions, meetings, and appointments until we are able to build a new facility. During this time, all of our animals will remain in our amazing foster homes. Additionally, we will no longer be available at our Ellis location, but you can email or call us for assistance. We are very happy about this new location, and we think it will be much easier to engage with our community. More information will be posted in the next two weeks. Thank you for your support.
