Saving Grace is Douglas County’s only animal shelter, providing shelter, food and medical care to thousands of animals each year. Beyond the basics, each animal receives compassionate care from our staff and volunteers while they wait to be reunited with their families or to find a new home. Warm blankets, toys and treats, time spent socializing with caring people; all are a part of the animals’ experience at Saving Grace.

We need your help to provide for the daily care and feeding of the animals who need us. You may not realize that our contract with the county provides only 16% of our operating budget. Shelter fees cover another 25%, and the balance is raised through donations, grants and fundraising efforts.

Your donation to Saving Grace stays in the community to help animals in need.  You’ll be joining hundreds of other people dedicated to finding homes for abandoned pets, rescuing abused and neglected animals, and preventing animal abuse through education.

Saving Grace is extremely efficient, spending only 10% of operating expense on administration and fundraising.  We understand that the animals' needs come first and make sure your donations provide maximum care for the animals you care about.

Will you help? The animals are counting on us!
