Pet Owners Struggle to Find Housing

Posted: Updated:

The Central Dakota Humane Society is a safe haven for dogs, cats and other pets, but the shelter is being inundated with pets brought in by their owners because they're looking for a place to live.

The Humane Society is a no kill shelter, and only has room for so many animals.

Staff members say it's getting to the point where they can't accept all the animals.

"We are getting a lot of people who are contacting us and asking if they can surrender their pets to us, owner surrenders we call them. But they are just in a bad situation where they can't find housing. We are trying to help them if we can, but it's a difficult situation," says Mandy Schaaf of the Humane Society.
