PROGRAMS & PARTNERSHIPS

The Puppy Palace

In partnership with the Animal Adoption Center, the first Puppy Palace opened in June 2021 and serves as a temporary home to litter after little of puppies and their mothers.

The Animal Adoption Center in Jackson, Wyoming constantly receives phone calls from the Wind River Reservation and other regional shelters about unwanted litters of puppies that need a safe place to land until they’re ready for adoption. Fortunately, Aska’s farm has the space and the heart to welcome these homeless animals as they prepare for their future homes.

In June, while traveling from Laredo, Texas to Driggs, Idaho on a Dog is My Copilot flight, a sweet homeless dog named Foxtrot went into labor. Right above Dubois, Foxtrot delivered 5 puppies. When the Animal Adoption Center heard the news, they called us, and our volunteer team immediately stepped up to prepare The Puppy Palace. We kept Foxtrot and her puppies safe and comfortable until they were ready for adoption. Daily puppy school with our expert dog behavior specialists and plenty of socializing time with a variety of volunteers ensures Foxtrot and her puppies will be well-behaved dogs entering our community.

Did you know all animals that enter our program need to be quarantined for 14 days before they are eligible for adoption? This prevents sick animals from entering our community, which reduces the rates of distemper and parvovirus in our region. The Puppy Palace is a safe place for mama dogs and puppies to quarantine before they enter our community. We’re in the process of getting 2 more outbuildings that will allow us to welcome vulnerable puppies and kittens as well as adult dogs in need of quarantine, medical assistance, and behavioral training.

Are you in need of some puppy therapy? Puppies benefit from socializing, playing, and cuddling with a variety of different people. Raising puppies is a full-time job that takes a community and although the puppies interact with our resident chickens, pigs, goats, and cats regularly, we need your help. If you’re interested in helping Aska’s Animals, in partnership with the Animal Adoption Center, prepare puppies for their futures homes, please submit a volunteer application.

Support Us

We’re currently fundraising to increase our animal capacity by purchasing 2 more new-to-us buildings to house animals in the critical gap between shelter and permanent rescue. We have the land to grow on, but we need well-built buildings that will provide secure animal housing. Like The Puppy Palace, two more outbuildings will allow us to say ‘yes’ to vulnerable puppies and kittens as well as adult dogs in need of behavioral training.
