Sioux Empire Kennel Club

Helping dogs live better lives since 1961

Serving since 1919, the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society is an open admission facility that takes in abandoned, abused, homeless, and unwanted animals that need tender loving care until they can find a permanent home. Our mission is to help these animals find their a permanent home, prevent animal cruelty, and educate people on the humane treatment of animals. We are unlike limited admission shelters, whereby animals can be turned away because of space, breed, or other reasons.


SEKC members donate annually a collection of items and money each year in December.
