Brookings Regional Humane Society (Brookings, South Dakota) formed in 1998 to help the Brookings Animal Control Department find homes for stray animals. Prior to BRHS forming, there was no humane society/adoption group; the majority of the animals at Animal Control had to be euthanized. The unclaimed, homeless cats and dogs from Animal Control are BRHS’ priority. Those unclaimed within a five-day holding period are surrendered to BRHS where they get the necessary wellness care and are spayed/neutered. Animal Control brings any sick or injured animals to BRHS for immediate care. It is rare now for an animal to be euthanized, as this organization continues to accomplish its mission.
In 2013 BRHS was very fortunate to move into its present location across from the Brookings Airport. The building was built specifically to house animals and provides a separate dog kennel area, rooms to house cats, natural lighting, and proper ventilation throughout the whole facility. There are also medical isolation, quarantine, treatment, and surgery rooms.
BRHS has been recognized for and has won multiple awards from both city and national organizations, including several Dog Rescue Awards and a nomination for the Governor’s Award.

The Golden State German Shepherd Rescue (Alameda, California 94501) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. We are a small group of volunteers and have no paid staff, facility, office or kennel. Our volunteers are located mainly in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our mission is to help German Shepherd Dogs in life-threatening situations, and to educate the public about this highly intelligent and versatile breed. Most of the German Shepherd Dogs we rescue come from the Northern and Central Valley regions of California .
Rescue is not simply taking animals out of shelters; it is also providing that animal with the opportunity through health care, behavioral and emotional assistance, to live out its life in a caring and loving home. Our goal is to find loving new homes for German Shepherd Dogs who are in need of a second chance; most of them have come from animal shelters in Northern California, where they have run out of time.
While we welcome the challenges that rescue work provides, it is not work we can do alone. We need help in the form of people and financial resources. Please consider joining us as a volunteer, a donor, or in any other manner in which you feel you can help. Your participation will be greatly appreciated by us, but – more importantly – by the dogs waiting for our help.

Palo Alto Humane Society (Palo Alto, California 94306) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, charitable, volunteer-supported organization.

Instead of managing animals inside a shelter, we work to keep animals out of the shelter through humane programs in intervention, advocacy, and education. For a century, our mission has been to alleviate the suffering of animals, increase public sensitivity to animal issues, and elevate the status of animals in our society.

Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic (Fort Collins, Colorado 80524) is a “Limited Admission, Adoption Guarantee Shelter.” This means we have to limit how many cats and kittens we take in due to space and financial restrictions, but we guarantee that every feline we rescue will be put up for adoption or will stay with us until it finds its forever home. We use humane euthanasia only as a last resort for critically ill or suffering cats and do not unnecessarily euthanize animals to free up shelter space.
We hope to someday in the future be able to operate as an “Open Admission, Adoption Guarantee Shelter.”
We are 100% committed to every cat that comes to our shelter, and will do our best to make sure it goes to the perfect home. If for any reason an adopter cannot keep the kitty they adopted from us, we will always take it back.
Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic operates the only truly low-cost spay/neuter clinic in the area. The numbers of unwanted pets that will be prevented from entering this world brings an entirely new sense of satisfaction to all of the people involved.

The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (Crozier, Virginia 23039) is the oldest and largest equine sanctuary of its kind in the world. It was founded with one purpose in mind — to save Thoroughbred horses no longer able to compete on the racetrack from possible neglect, abuse, and slaughter.
The James River chapter was founded in 2007 as one of the Second Chances programs where horses live at correctional centers. At James River Work Center offenders care for the horses and become certified in the nationally acclaimed Groom Elite program in the process. The horses here are assured a lifetime of care with the opportunity to be adopted out if suited. Our success stories confirm that our program is horses helping people, people helping horses.
