We want to thank everyone for their continued support of Joplin’s Animal Rescue and our efforts.  This transition provides us with an opportunity to stay in touch with the animals that we cared for    on a daily basis while providing us with greater capability to respond in times of need and utilize   our training and experience to the utmost.


This transition allows us more time and freedom to respond to man-made and natural disasters around the country.  As an example this summer two of our associates deployed to Lake Charles, LA to assist in the search and rescue and recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura.

The Transition

(Photos are from Lake Charles after Hurricane Laura destroyed much of the town.)

Additionally two of our associates in northern California have been assisting for nearly a month on   the massive wildfires raging through the state this year.  Here in Washington we have additionally responded to a half dozen wildfires ranging from the Okanogan Valley, to Yakima (Evans Canyon fire) to the fires near Seattle (i.e. Sumner, Bonney Lake and Graham).
The transition has freed us up to provide a wide variety of services including search/rescue, evacuation assistance, field triage and transport along with post event “recovery” efforts

and logistical support.

The photos below are from the Babbs Road fire that ravaged the town of Malden, WA on Labor Day this year.  Malden is 25 miles south of Spokane and was virtually destroyed by a fast moving grass/sagebrush wildfire that was driven by 40 mile per hour winds.  In Malden we provided logistical support, search and rescue assistance and further emotional support.

Chickens survived despite burnt enclosure, etc.

Friend Us

Joplin’s after eight years of successfully operating both a single location sanctuary and animal rescue non-profit (501c3) has made a transition to a new operational model.  We have closed down the single location sanctuary while successfully moving all the animals in our care to new loving adoptive homes or to other sanctuaries that we are aligned with.
