“CLEAR THE SHELTERS” ON AUGUST 18th
Once again, Clear the Shelters, the popular nationwide pet adoption drive, is returning to Kansas Humane Society on Saturday, August 18! All adoption fees will be waived and we're OPENING EARLY at 10 am!*
How is this possible? We've partnered with KSN TV to host NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations' Clear the Shelters event! Since 2015, Clear the Shelters has resulted in more than 153,000 pet adoptions nationwide! You’ll help to give a homeless animal a new chance at life and you may also find your new best friend!
We want to give a huge thank you to KSN-TV and NBCUniversal television for making this all possible, as well as our sponsors All Paws Pet Center, Petco Foundation and Marni Stevens.

This year, NBC and Telemundo stations all across the country will join with hundreds of animal shelters, including the Kansas Humane Society, to offer low cost or waived pet adoption fees to help families find and adopt a new pet. Since 2015, the stations’ Clear the Shelters pet adoption campaign has resulted in more than 153,000 pet adoptions nationwide.

July 4 Pet Safety
To keep July 4th safe for your furry family members, there are a few safety tips to follow.
- Keep your pets indoors. Loud noises and bright lights can be frightening and pets are more likely to be stressed or escape when they are left outside. Keep pets indoors and play soft music or leave the TV on.
- Wear them out ahead of time. Give your pet plenty of exercise during the day so they’ll have less energy and stress at night.
- Make sure your pet is wearing a collar with proper ID. If your pet does manage to get out, an ID tag will help anyone who finds him/her be able to get them back home as soon as possible.
Keep your dog on a leash. Even after the main fireworks are over, if you take your pet outside to play or potty, any last-minute fireworks could startle your animal and cause them to run.
UPDATE: All spots are currently filled, thank you for participating!
KHS is excited to announce that we have received a generous grant from PetSmart Charities that will fund a Spay/Neuter Blitz program for 300 dogs. Any dog owner making less than $40,000 per year, with proof of income and proof of address, can now have their dog altered with a fee waived surgery at KHS until funds are exhausted. Each dog will also be microchipped, and owners will be provided with a collar, leash and custom tag.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the June 18 All For The Paws concert featuring Michael Ray has been CANCELLED.
