Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Sioux Falls Humane Society is working to protect animals by helping to address the overpopulation issue. Our current Strategic Plan states that the organization will spay and neuter each animal before adoption. This will greatly help pets to find homes, and protect them from overpopulation and breeding.
Our organization is well respected in the animal care arena, as well as health and education.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Paroled Pups

The Paroled Pups program has been in existence for 20 years. We pair animals that have not been taught basic skills to an inmate at the South Dakota State Penitentiary. The animals live on site, and are trained daily to develop skills that help them to be adopted into loving homes.

Population(s) Served
Adults

This partnership exists to pair Veterans with service animals. We train the animals at the South Dakota State Penitentiary on service skills, therapy and general assistance to veterans with PTSD, and Traumatic Brain Injury.

Population(s) Served
Adults

This program is a quarterly learning experience for children. They learn to develop skills to take care of animals in their home as well as learn important skills for safety.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

We have many training programs available for the adopted pet. From take home education, behavior, feeding, and family education, we support the new adopter on what they need to learn to take proper care of the animals in their families.

Population(s) Served
Adults

The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society pairs animals with the National Search and Rescue foundation. They are taken to training at the SD Canine Center, and are deployed upon graduation to disasters, drug enforcement, rescue, and search.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society mission is to provide safe haven and a human voice for all animals in need. To that mission, we accept all animals for intake regardless of breed, reason, or health. We take in over 8000 animals per year. These animals are surrendered by owner request, taken in as they have been neglected or abused, or stray. We believe we are making a huge impact in our state, holding 21 animal care and control contracts.
We pride ourselves in being a transparent, that respects the donor requests that come our way.

1. Spay and neuter of all pets before adoption.
2. All animals leave the facility with microchip, and all required vaccinations.
3. Education is offered after the adoption so that the animals find their forever homes.
4. Long term Strategic plan to address space, and cleanliness.
5. Protect the welfare of all animals.
6. Protect the legal system with regard to animal abuse, and neglect.

We have a very aggressive fund development plan including events, planned gifts, corporate partnerships, estate planning, and general community events.

The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society has been in existence since 1919. We have been the community's "go to" for all animal related needs, and continue to strive for good customer service, and animal care.
We have added a significant amount of programming, to help veterans, abused women and children, special needs population, search and rescue efforts so that animals that "need jobs" are given them to help others.
In 2020, even with Covid, we adopted out as many animals as the year before, and continue programming as normal as possible.

Last updated: 10/31/2022

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
