Welcome to our No Kill Shelter located in Hot Springs, South Dakota. 

 Our rescued furry friends are happy here now that they are no longer abused, homeless or abandoned.

We have 8.5 acres in the beautiful Black Hills for our loving adoptable dogs to run free and play with their friends. We depend on 100% donations to take care of our animals at our safe haven.

Since we are a 501(c)3 non-profit, your donations are tax deductible. Tax receipts are available upon request.  

 


 

We are in great need of assistance with Dog and Cat Food, Treats, Wee Wee Pads, and Cat Litter. We go through 100 pounds of dog food day, and 30 pounds of cat food a day.  A 55 pound bag of dog food costs about $25.00, a bag of cat food costs about $15.00, cat litter cost $10.00, treats cost from $5.00 to $20.00, and wee wee pads cost $15.00. We  greatly appreciate any donation to help us with the cost of dog and cat guests while they wait for a new family. You can swing by our shelter to drop off donations of pet food, checks and supplies. 

We are in Rapid City every Saturday accepting donations.  Join us on our Facebook page for updates. Our email address is: battlemountainhumanesociety@yahoo.com

Thank you.
