Oglala Pet Project

Posted: Updated:

The people of the Oglala Sioux Tribe live on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Western South Dakota. Shannon County is one of the poorest counties in the nation and has been featured on 20/20 and OWN for it's struggle with poverty, alcoholism, and addiction. Another aspect of the life on the reservation is an alarmingly overpopulation of dogs. Andrea Goodman is president of the Oglala Pet Project. The organization has taken on the job of rehabilitating and finding good homes for these dogs. OPP is on the November cover of (605) Magazine. Editor-in-Chief Alana Snyder brought in one of the OPP's dogs MJ to show to Nancy. OPP is 100% volunteer driven and based in Pine Ridge.
