When we see a dog, cat, or a pet of any kind, we can't help but be in a happy mood. Pets just make life better!

Our four-legged friends are huge companions in our lives. They are truly part of the family, so it's always hard to believe that some animals do not have a permanent home. Individuals abandon them for various reasons, but that does not mean our dogs and cats don't deserve a second chance.

According to the ASPCA organization, across the country 6.5 million companion animals like dogs and cats enter shelters every year. On the bright side, there are 3.2 million animals that are adopted from shelters every year. Luckily, there are great organizations in the Sioux Empire that help abandoned animals find their forever homes.

The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society is actively updating its adoptable animals list on a weekly basis for dogs, cats, and even bunnies. The non-profit even made a recent Facebook post with pictures of animals who have been at the shelter for over 60 days. That's 60 days way too long.

They are looking for loving new homes! Check out some pictures of your future best friend. Here are the long-time residents currently at the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society that you can adopt today!
