Due to recent headlines, we feel it's important to share the difference between the Kansas Humane Society in Wichita (KHS) and the national Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), whose CEO is under a sexual harassment investigation.
Kansas Humane Society is NOT affiliated with the Humane Society of the United States. We don't receive any funding or resources from them and we have no contractual obligations. Our CEO is under no investigation or allegation. "Humane society" is a generic term used throughout the animal welfare world, but these organizations are not all connected.
Kansas Humane Society is Wichita's largest privately-funded, non-profit animal shelter organization: featuring pets for adoption, dog training classes, spay/neuter services, humane education, programs for kids, volunteer and foster opportunities, and a variety of fundraising programs. We receive no funding from the government, United Way or Humane Society of the United States. Our goal is to find loving homes for thousands of animals each year while providing community resources to improve the lives of companion animals.
Please let your family and friends know the difference if you hear them discussing this topic. Our animals thank you!
In 2017, Kansas Humane Society had a record setting year. The numbers are impressive, but even more impressive is the amount of people who made them possible. Since moving to our new facility in 2009, our save rate has increased from 55% to 93% and live outcomes has increased from 7,996 to 11,092. Our euthanasia has dropped significantly from 7,392 to 805 animals. However, our success would not be possible without the support of our community.
Our staff, volunteers, donors, rescue partners, adopters, supporters and the City of Wichita work tirelessly to provide better lives for animals. They are an extremely dedicated and caring group of people. We work closely with over 100 rescue partners to give us the space to bring in more homeless pets while providing the rescues with access to low cost medical services. It’s an amazing team effort and I’m proud of how we’re working together.
As we look to the future, I want KHS to build on this success and remain a valuable community resource. Our goals are to save as many lives as possible, and provide the services our community needs. KHS has youth education programs to teach the next generation about responsible pet ownership and how to safely interact with animals. We are performing low cost, donor subsidized spay and neuter surgeries and we offer training classes to help people work with their pets to correct behavior problems to reduce owner surrenders.
While thank you doesn’t say enough, I want you to know that our success depends entirely on continued support from everyone in our community. Thank you for your support and for your work to improve the lives of companion animals.
