About us

In in the fall of 2017, two girls realized the terrible situation many dogs were in within their area of East Alabama and West Georgia. Animal Controls were filled to the brim with dogs needing homes and there were not enough volunteers, fosters, or rescues able to help. It was then that these two college students knew they needed to jump in to action.​

That rescue effort has evolved into what we are now today; a 100% donations-based rescue group comprised of student officers who have saved over 300 animals in East Alabama from death row. Pups on the Plains operates by coordinating, transporting, fostering, vetting, and adopting out the dogs and cats that we pull from animal controls that are full of animals and will need to euthanize for space.​ We achieved our non-profit 501c3 status in 2019, meaning your donations can be tax-deductible!

We are so passionate to share our love for rescue with the Auburn community and continue educating the students of Auburn's campus about animal welfare.
