Humane Society Of The Black Hills Grateful For Response

The Humane Society of the Black Hills is currently housing 270 animals, its largest number in five years, reports the Rapid City Journal.

After sheriff's deputies received an anonymous call about neglected animals at a house in Creighton, SD, 75 animals were removed and relocated to the Humane Society on Tuesday.  By early afternoon on Wednesday, the Humane Society has received over $10,000 in donations, as well as food, blankets and towels to help with the influx.  Criminal charges are pending for the owner of the animals, and they will be at the shelter until the court case is resolved.

For more information on animals in the Black Hills, please visit the Black Hills Knowledge Network news archive.
