If you are looking to add a pet in your life, you may want to consider adopting one. There are a couple of animal rescues in Sioux Falls to help you find your new family member. Some have plenty of advertisements and some you may never heard of. This blog is to let you know what is in our area.
When someone mentions adopting a pet they usually think of the Sioux Falls Humane Society or Second Chance Rescue. Both places are great if you are trying to find any animal. I lean more towards Sioux Falls Humane Society because I have been one of their volunteers for a few years now. Almost Home Canine Rescue is another that is located in Sioux Falls/Madison. Here are the websites:

There are rescues that are breed specific. In a previous blog I mentioned the Dakota Dachshund Rescue (DDR) that I volunteer for. http://www.dakotadachshundrescue.org/
Luv-A-Chin Rescue is a rescue for Japanese Chin and Japanese Chin mixes.
One of my all time favorite dogs is a boxer. For years I had planned on getting a boxer as my very first dog. I dated someone a couple of years ago that had an American Bulldog (AB) and fell in love with the breed. So when it came time for me to choose my first dog I bought an AB instead. Heck, I still may get a boxer in the future! If you are looking for a boxer rescue, you can visit the Northern Plains Boxer Rescue website.
And if you are looking for a pit bull, Sioux Empire Pit Rescue is the way to go.
Please do not buy a puppy/dog in a pet store! Odds are that puppy came from a puppy mill. By adopting, you have made a small step to help putting a stop to puppy mills!!
