Welcome to the Western Hills Humane Society, a no-kill, non-suffering pet shelter that protects, saves and enhances the lives of abused, neglected, forgotten and lost animals. Located in the beautiful Black Hills of Spearfish, South Dakota. In addition to donations and fundraising efforts, the shelter is generously funded by the City of Spearfish, Lawrence County, and various grants. Western Hills Humane Society cares for approximately 600 animals a year. As a no-kill shelter some animals residents have been living at our shelter for several years patiently awaiting their forever home.
