BRHS formed in 1998 to help the Brookings Animal Control Department find homes for stray animals.The unclaimed, homeless cats and dogs from Animal Control are BRHS' priority. Those unclaimed are transferred 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.
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.
We're open Monday through Friday 12-6, Saturdays 11-4, closed Sundays. We are a small foster home based group but we do have a shelter building to house our cats, small animals, and our new arrivals. We do have our dogs on site if they do not have a foster home- dogs in foster come in on Saturdays 11-4 or by appointment.
Due to COVID 19 we are currently open by appointment only for adoptions and other services.
