SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Sioux Falls Humane Society announced the facility has no available kennels.

According to the shelter’s Facebook post, the staff has had to resort to using “drop kennels, office pets, & keeping pets in foster longer than needed.”

There are currently more than 50 dogs that are waiting for their forever homes. The post says, “We are being forced to schedule surrenders weeks in advance just to make sure we have space for them. We have heartwarming adoptions every day, yet the intake of animals swamps the number going out.”

The post says rescue partners also struggle to find forever homes for all the animals. If you can open your home to an animal in need, now is the time.

Call (605) 338-4441 if you would like to help.
