WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Kansas Humane Society (KHS) is at capacity and needs adopted animals.
“We have over 215 pets at the shelter (not all are ready for adoption yet) and over 240 in foster care. We desperately need your help to save lives so we don’t have to make extremely difficult decisions,” KHS said. “The Wichita Animal Shelter (next to KHS) is also full with over 113 dogs and 122 cats – these animals are at risk and are waiting for open KHS kennels to be transferred to our care for adoption.”

If you are unable to adopt an animal, you can help KHS in other ways:
To give. The KHS is a non-profit organization that relies solely on donations to keep its doors open and provide services to the Wichita and surrounding community. KHS says it desperately needs funds to operate and continue its rescue efforts.
To favor. Placement at KHS is free and they provide the supplies you need. To register with a host family, Click here.
Make known. KHS asks you to spread the word that they need community support. KHS says they believe they can get through what they call a crisis with your help.
Volunteer. You can volunteer at KHS. They state that they are currently facing severe staffing shortages. They need your help walking the dogs, cuddling the cats, doing the laundry and dishes, cleaning the kennels, and helping with neutering surgeries in their clinic.

Waiting to return your pet. KHS accepts pets by appointment, and they state that they no longer have appointments available or kennels open. They ask that if you need to relocate your pet immediately, please check with family and friends, or try to post your pet in line.
