We are a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter located in Hays, Kansas, dedicated to providing dog, cat and other pet adoption services, as well as wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.

Established in 2006, our organization has changed the lives of thousands of animals and people. Many of the animals we rescue come from other shelters where they were scheduled for euthanasia. We have an on-site veterinarian and a fantastic network of volunteers to make sure every animal has a fighting chance.

At Western Plains Animal Refuge, every life matters.
