We Need Your Help!


We need your help to help the dogs of Standing Rock! Please donate so that we can continue to save the wonderful dogs from Standing Rock Indian Reservation. We need to raise $10,000 by September 12th in order to return to the reservation and bring dogs to rescue so that they will not be euthanized.


Several months ago, we were contacted about helping the dogs of Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Many of the communities there were overrun with homeless dogs, with no resources to care for them. Unfortunately, with nowhere for the dogs to go, the only option to control the population was to round up the dogs and euthanize. No one wanted this to happen. Everyone wanted to find help.

After meeting with the Tribal Rangers, 4 Luv of Dog Rescue agreed to visit the reservation as often as possible. Volunteers drove hours in vans full of crates, and spent many more hours in the communities catching and loading dogs with the help of local residents.

Unfortunately, due to lack of vet care, many of these dogs have serious medical issues. Some of them are in such poor condition, we can not save them, and it is heartbreaking. Most of them are treatable. With weeks and sometimes months of care, we watch them go from sick and scared to healthy and happy.

This effort has taken a huge toll on our funds. Even the healthy dogs require vaccinations, spay/neuter, and exams. That, along with the costs for the sick dogs, has drained our resources. The only way that we can return to help more dogs is to raise the funds in advance to provide vet care for them.

The dogs of the reservation are great – they are so grateful for love, attention, and snacks! They are volunteer favorites because of their easy going personalities. Fosters and adopters love them. They deserve to live. They deserve to have a chance at a loving home. We do not want to leave them – but we need your help to help them! To donate click the link below. Thank you!!

Foster homes are the most important part of our rescue. Every week there are dogs in need of rescue in local and regional pounds. Without people willing to open their hearts and homes and offering to care for these dogs, we can not help rescue these homeless dogs. Foster homes provide the love and shelter while 4 Luv of Dog Rescue provides and pays for all necessities (food, kennel, medical care, etc.). Unfortunately, we don’t have enough foster homes for all the dogs we have accepted into our rescue. These dogs currently are staying at local boarding facilities or with temporary foster homes. Please consider providing one of them a foster or forever home and apply to become a foster home. If you can’t foster but still want to help, please make a donation towards our boarding expenses.
