Bark the Vote South Dakota is made up of concerned residents in the state of South Dakota. Although many of our supporters are volunteers, and work in animal rescue. We are not affiliated with any rescue or shelter organization, neither locally or nationally.

We encourage you to support rescue and adoption in choosing a pet. We also suggest that when making a donation, financial or supplies, that you donate locally and make a difference in the community you live in.

Although many other rescues & some national organizations use the slogan "bark the vote" this by no means ties us to them. It is commonly used by many pet related groups for their efforts. The idea that we are part of any national organization has been misrepresented by many in our area and continues to be false.
