Shelter Closure Brings More To Humane Society

August 3, 2011, 6:56 AM by Casey Wonnenberg

Shelter Closure Brings More To Humane Society
SIOUX FALLS, SD - For a week-and-a-half now, the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society is once again the only animal shelter open in town.

Since Second Chance Rescue Center closed a week ago Sunday, the Humane Society has seen around double the number of people coming in.

"We have a lot of fun, just looking around and seeing all the animals," Kelli Lawrence said.

"I think most people are worried, wondering if the animals out there got adopted, which they did. That was very good news," Sioux Falls Area Humane Society Executive Director Kori Baade said.

What the Humane Society hasn't seen more of over the past week is animals.

"We haven't seen an influx of animals, but we did take over a lot of those contracts three or four months ago, so really we haven't seen a big difference," Baade said.

Still the Humane Society doesn't have a lot of extra room. There are usually 400 to 500 animals at the shelter, with space for 600.

"We're looking into a building fund campaign. We want to add one more building here to make sure we have enough room for everything that's coming in in the future as well," Baade said.

If you would like to donate to the building fund, you can drop off a donation at the shelter or contribute through the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society's website.
