About Our Shelter:

Battle Mountain Humane Society is a 501 (c) 3, all-volunteer, no-kill shelter in Hot Springs, SD. Our mission is to provide comprehensive care in a loving and safe environment to animals in need in Fall River County, SD and the surrounding areas, while reducing the number of animals in need of rescue and promoting kindness towards animals in the community. We love our animals and work to improve their lives.

We have struggle a lot this year and faced challenges that we never expected, but the adversity deepened our commitment to serve animals. Our shelter burned down in an electrical fire on April 4, 2012. We are thankful that 80 of the 92 dogs in our care at that time survived. We have incurred thousands of dollars in veterinary bills in the last three months providing life-saving care to animals. We are in need of donations to cover the expenses associated with rebuilding, veterinary bills, and basic dog care needs. We accept donations of pet supplies and dog food (Purina or other high-quality food). We are currently in desperate need of completing and heating the inside of our building.

We operate with volunteers and are always looking for people who want to help in any capacity. If you want to volunteer with us, we'll find a job that suits you.

Our Adoption Process:

Dog adoptions are $75. In special cases, the adoption fee may be more. Cat adoptions are a suggested donation of $30. You will be asked to complete an adoption application to help us match you with a dog or cat. You must supply contact information for a personal reference, veterinary reference, and landlord approval (if applicable). After you select a dog or cat, a home visit will be scheduled. If your home meets the needs of the dog or cat you selected, your adoption will be completed at that time. You will be asked to sign an adoption contract indicating that you will provide proper nutrition, shelter, and veterinary care to your dog or cat. You must agree to safely return your dog or cat to Battle Mountain Humane Society if you are no longer able to provide sufficient care to him or her, unless other arrangements are made with the approval of BMHS.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
