Brookings, South Dakota —

Since 1998, Brookings (South Dakota) Humane Society has provided a safe haven for dogs, cats and other small companion animals while they await their new homes. BRHS supports the spaying and neutering of animals in order to prevent the overpopulation of unwanted animals – all of our dogs, cats and rabbits are spayed or neutered PRIOR TO adoption! At BRHS, we typically see 500-600 animals yearly!

The Brookings Regional Humane Society is a tax exempt non-profit 501C(3) charitable organization. BRHS is a small, local non-profit, and not affiliated with or funded by national organizations.  We are 100% community supported — your donations, endowments, memorials, and volunteerism are critical to the consistent care of the animals in our care.  BRHS would not exist, saving thousands of animal lives, if not for the on-going, generous support from the community.

Our Mission:

  • To shelter homeless pets.

  • To protect animals by finding permanent loving homes through an aggressive adoption outreach program.

  • To educate the community about companion animals and promote responsible pet care and pet ownership.

  • To promote the reduction of pet overpopulation through spay/neuter education and programs. 

BRHS is a small, limited admission shelter.
