Several dogs need immediate foster care and are eligible for our Foster-to-Adopt program. You can adopt for a reduced fee after your foster term! These dogs need foster care because they have kennel cough, a doggy cold which causes sneezing and coughing. Symptoms usually last 2 - 4 weeks. Click here to view available dogs.
How Foster-to-Adopt works:
- Pick up your foster dog today and pay a foster deposit.
- We'll contact you within 3 days to check on the dog's health.
- If the dog is no longer coughing, we'll schedule an appointment with our veterinarians for a health check.
- Once the dog is cleared of kennel cough, you can sign adoption paperwork, with no money due at the time of adoption! You'll also receive a $10 credit to the KHS store.
If you're interested in Foster-to-Adopt, stop by today and speak with our front desk staff, or call 316-524-9196. Click here to view available dogs.

Grant of $50,000 will extend efforts to save more animal lives in Wichita, Kan.
Kansas Humane Society of Wichita announced it has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its work to promote the bond between people and animals through pet adoption and spay/neuter services.
The Petco Foundation investment will help to provide discounted spay and neuter services for pet owners in the community who can provide proof of financial need. The grant will also be used to underwrite free and reduced cost adoption events.
“This grant will help us continue to do lifesaving work in the Wichita area. We will be able to provide low cost spay/neuter services to prevent unwanted litters of animals and help many animals in our community live healthier lives. We’re very thankful that this Petco Foundation grant will allow us to host reduced cost adoption events throughout the year to place even more animals in loving homes” said Mark Eby, President/CEO of Kansas Humane Society.
Kansas Humane Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the welfare of all companion animals serving the Wichita, Kan. area. Since 1888, Kansas Humane Society has found homes for thousands of animals each year. Kansas Humane Society achieved a 94% save rate in 2018, and provided care and services for nearly 16,000 animals.

With our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than six million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started. Visit petcofoundation.org to learn more about how you can get involved.
Animal lives are in extreme danger! We URGENTLY need fosters for medium to large size dogs with kennel cough. Our isolation space is full, and the State of Kansas will not allow us to make them available for adoption. Their only options are going to foster care, or euthanasia.
Kennel cough is contagious and similar to a doggy cold. It causes sneezing and coughing, and symptoms generally last for a few weeks. KHS provides fosters with everything needed to care for the animal. There is no cost to foster for KHS and save a life!
