The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society just got a big check at a time when they really need it.

Schulte Suburu in Sioux Falls wrote a check for $70,000 to the Humane Society. The money will help pay for the spaying and neutering of pets that are going to be adopted out. 

“We’re over 500 animals that we take care of right now and that’s growing day to day. This last weekend we had over, I think we had 48 animals dropped off to us in about a days period of time, day and a half,” Sioux Falls Area Human Society Executive Director Kori Baade said. 

Schulte Suburu also donated a car to the Humane Society. Owner Mike Schulte says the dealership has a special connection to pets.

“We have Suby walking around here, was a cat we actually rescued last Christmas, very sick. Kori spent about a month rehabbing the cat and then instead of adopting it out, we decided to keep the cat here at the dealership,” Mike Schulte Owner of Schulte Subaru said.

Suby is a mellow cat that greets customers at the door and doesn’t even mind when a dog comes into the building.
