SF Area Humane Society Running Out Of Room Despite High Adoption Levels

SF Area Humane Society Running Out Of Room Despite High Adoption Levels
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society is filling up with animals and the nonprofit is even turning down owner surrendered cats due to lack of space.

The Humane Society has been seeing a record number of animals in the past couple of years. This means it takes quite a bit of staff to prepare the animals for adoption by cutting toenails, giving shots, body checks, and doing a lot of laundry. 

On Thursday, 31 animals were adopted from the shelter, including nine cats, 21 dogs, and one ferret. But even with this many animals finding new homes, there are an equal number coming in to the humane society.

“Usually a day before a holiday, we have a lot of intakes, but then we do a lot of adoptions too, so yeah, it kind of evens itself out, I guess,” Kennel Manager Monique Mixell said.

Which is why the kennels are filling up, even with high adoption levels on the weekends.

We'll have more on the humane society's growing need for people to adopt tonight on KELOLAND News at 10.
