Make a difference in an animals life today 

Making a donation to the Story county animal shelter is a compassionate and worthwhile cause. Your donation can make a significant impact on the lives of animals in need, and help to create a more humane and compassionate society. At our facility, every donation goes a long way in improving the lives of our furry friends while they wait to find their forever homes. Our generous supporters make it possible for us to provide non-routine surgeries, animal enrichment, updated enclosures, neonatal kitten care, specialized medical expenses, and animal care supplies.  Fundraising is a vital aspect of our operation, and we're grateful for every contribution we receive. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has donated items to our facility. Your donations enable us to provide exceptional care to all our furry friends during their stay with us.
