Welcome to Great Plains Angels for Animals website.

Great Plains Angels for Animals was founded by Louise Collins in 2007.

We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization that runs on donations only. We are not a shelter or a humane society. We are all volunteers that foster and operate from our homes. We are opening a new central location and address will be provided when it is completed. Be on the lookout for our grand opening!

We rescue dogs and cats from the City of Liberal Animal Shelter and transport them to no-kill rescue groups and foster homes for adoption. 

Occasionally someone adopts a dog or cat from GPAA. We strictly follow the Kansas Pet Animal Act, K.S.A. 47-1731 (2) concerning spaying and neutering. Animals are also available for adoption at:

 Liberal Animal Shelter
1985 N County Estate Road
Liberal, KS
(620) 626-0576

Please look around our site and let us know if you have any questions or would like to help us.

Become a Foster

We are ALWAYS looking for people willing to foster dogs, puppies, and kittens until they can be transported.  Please if you are willing to help contact us.  You will be rewarded more than you can imagine.

Meet Mr. Steve and Traveler.  Steve and his wife bottle fed and cared for Traveler from about one week old.  On January 31, 2017 Traveler was old enough to go to a wonderful foster home associated with a no-kill rescue in Colorado where he was adopted. While it is hard to say so long to something you have loved and given so much of your time to, we greatly appreciate our fosters, such as Steve and Dee, otherwise puppies/kittens like Traveler would not have a chance at life.  PLEASE consider becoming a foster and a member of Great Plains Angels for Animals.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true,
to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."
