SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Two nonprofit organizations have secured funds to help address a dog overpopulation problem at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwest South Dakota.

The organizations say the $24,000 they raised will cover the costs of spaying, neutering or relocating dogs to shelters in South Dakota, Colorado, Wyoming and Minnesota.

Lakota Animal Care has scheduled a spaying and neutering clinic at the reservation for Tuesday and Wednesday. The group also plans on relocating the first 50 dogs to Minnesota shelters.

The organizations say the money will allow them to host two clinics per month through the rest of the year. They say the clinics will begin in the communities with the greatest need.
