At Prairie’s Edge Humane Society (PEHS) we take them all; the homeless, abandoned and lost, the sick, the injured and the old.

We provide these animals with a temporary home and medical and emotional attention they may need until a permanent loving home is found. Many animals spend several months with us while they rehabilitate or wait for that perfect home. Animals do not run out of time at PEHS, they stay until they are adopted; there is never a time limit.

Some of the services PEHS provides are sheltering, rehoming, medical care and rehabilitation of homeless animals, facilitating low cost spay/neuter, microchipping services, animal welfare education, animal lost and found information, school and senior facility pet visits, volunteer and foster opportunities, as well as sponsoring many animal related community events.

There is no other facility in this community that provides the types of services provided by PEHS.

Animals come to us with numerous medical issues along with other needs. Because PEHS has an in-house veterinarian, as well as other professional staff, these animals receive care they could not receive elsewhere and might have been euthanized. PEHS works to heal their injuries and illnesses until they are healthy enough for adoption. Our dedicated staff and volunteers care for these animals with love, comfort and dignity.

PEHS can house over 70 homeless cats at any given time in our facility between the adoption floor and the medical/impound areas. We also house and care for other homeless companion animals such as rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, gerbils, pet rats, etc. The animals physically housed at PEHS each receive much personal attention and play time on a daily basis.

The homeless dogs at PEHS are housed in foster homes where they are cared for by wonderful volunteers. PEHS provides these foster homes with food, supplies and medical care for the dog while in foster care until they are adopted into a permanent home. Housing the dogs in foster homes allows the dog to thrive and show their true personality.

Animals are brought to us from various situations. Many are owner surrenders who for various reasons are unable to stay in their current home. Some are strays or lost animals who are brought to us in hopes that we can find their owners. If these animals are not reunited with their owners in the allotted time frame, the animal is then placed for adoption through PEHS. Some animals have been left along a country road, in a ditch or left behind when the owner moves out, to fend for themselves. PEHS takes in these animals, treats their ailments, teaches them to trust again and adopts them into loving, caring homes.

Prior to adoption, all animals receive a general health examination, are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, treated for ear mites and microchipped. All dogs are heartworm tested and all cats are Feline Leukemia/FIV tested and heartworm tested.

PEHS cannot continue to help this many animals without your help. The cost to house and care for these animals is incredible. PEHS has secured $4,000 in matching funds for Give to the Max Day. Each of your donations will be doubled, up to $4000.

Our goal for Give to the Max Day is $25,000. It is a hefty goal but with your help we can do it. Please donate on Give to the Max Day and help us save another life.
