We're called to be a blessing—to the pets we serve, our employees, and those around us!
It all started with a dream—a calling from God that nudged us toward doing more.
Jeanine firmly believes business should be about more than simply making money. She wanted to create a business that would generate a steady stream of income that could be donated to charity. After a few years of planning, and a lot of prayers, Paws Pet Resort became a reality in 2018.
Paws Pet Resort donates a portion of its proceeds to charitable organizations. The first is Mission Haiti, a Sioux Falls-based non-profit that holds a special place in our hearts. The second organization is Partners World Wide. Additionally, there are two other spots that rotate quarterly. Learn more about each cause below!
Let us not grow weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest of blessings if we don't give up. Galatians 6:9

This Quarter's Featured Organizations
Hope Harbor offers loving, family-style care. Just like at home, residents prepare meals and eat together, share bedrooms, do their laundry, relax in the living room and use the yard for games. Biblical counseling and non-accredited private school are provided on-site. Our teens learn healthier habits as they build skills to serve them for years to come.
The Hope Harbor program is a voluntary placement option where teens ages 12-17 and their families have the opportunity to heal from past hurts and destructive choices. We offer a small, structured program that incorporates the entire family with a focus on Jesus Christ in all things in a ministry setting.
Hope Harbor has been providing loving, family-style care to teens in our locations since 2005. We are committed to a safe, comfortable home environment where teens learn responsibility, understand their own value, and receive the tools they need to pursue excellence in all they do. Our program is structured so residents prepare meals and eat together family-style, share bedrooms with one roommate, do their own laundry, relax in the living room and use the yard for games, just like at home.https://hopeharbormn.org/parker/
Who We Are
Sex and labor trafficking trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation occur at growing rates across the United States, including in the state of South Dakota. Several intersecting factors, including extreme poverty, geographic isolation, and homelessness, result in high levels of victimization across the state. Call to Freedom is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in South Dakota dedicated to bringing wholeness to all individuals impacted by sex and labor trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.
Founded in 2016, Call to Freedom hired its first full-time staff member in 2018 and has grown to 29 full-time staff united by their passion for ensuring survivors of trafficking and exploitation are believed and supported by their community. Staff members bring decades of experience combatting violence and providing community-based services and include previous South Dakota Department of Corrections staff, social workers, law enforcement, and addiction recovery specialists.
The majority of our direct service staff had worked with Call to Freedom in their prior roles as community-based service providers and joined call to Freedom because of their passion for its holistic, person-centered approach. Our staff are uniquely positioned to serve trafficking survivors, given their experience working with people who have experienced trauma, responding to crisis situations, and identifying community resources available within the Sioux Falls community and across South Dakota.Visit Website
