The rescue of South Dakota dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and small domestic mammals, is critical to the well-being of these companions. This page is dedicated to providing rescue lists for all South Dakota pets. We thank all those people who give unselfishly to the saving and placement of the less fortunate, and we hope that any heartache you encounter is overwhelmed by the happiness you make.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: It is PGAA’s desire to provide a list of adoption and rescue sites that rescue pets and, hopefully, place them into new loving and caring homes. While we make every effort to only publish links from reputable rescue agencies, we HAVE NOT physically reviewed these organizations. Let us know of any unfavorable experiences that you may have had with any rescue/adoption group at PGAA Rescues.
It is difficult to continually maintain a completely valid list of operating rescue agencies so some of these rescues may no longer be operating. Your cooperation in notifying us of closed rescues will also be appreciated.

South Dakota Adoption and Rescue Organizations.
Please use caution when considering placing an animal with any one involved in animal rescue, or if you get an animal from a rescue/adoption agency. Get references and do some investigation on your own. Long-distance/sight unseen adoptions can be risky.
A “Yes” in the No-Kill column means that the rescue is a shelter where animals are only euthanized if they are too sick to be treated or too aggressive to be suitable for adoption.
