Helloooo there. My name is Hilde Palladino, but you can call me Hilde. I was found wandering alone and some nice people made sure I found my way here. I am approximately 5 months old (born 5-7-16). Recently I got moved into a big room with my new friends. They are kind of small, but I enjoy getting to play! I also like to climb as you can see in my picture. Come visit me today and see if I am the kitten for you. Remember, ask for Hilde. The people here know me.

Our kitten/cat adoption fees vary on age, special needs, lonely heart status (cats that have been with us 6+ months), and for our senior to seniors program. Our adoption fees include the following: all of our cats/kittens are current on vaccinations (FVRCP series and Rabies if over 3 months of age) at the point of adoption, dewormed, tested for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), treated for fleas/ticks/earmites in addition to being spayed or neutered once the cat reaches 2 lbs in weight. All cats and kittens adopted from the shelter are microchipped. Adoption fees may vary in special circumstances.

Because we are on a busy street, we require that all cats leaving the shelter be in a carrier. All pets are up for adoption until an approved application is processed and their adoption fee is paid.

About Brookings Regional Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

BRHS 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.
