Loving Layla – Dog of the Week

Layla is a shy and gentle 3-year-old dog. She is very timid around new people she meets and generally tries to avoid too much human interaction until she gets to know you better. However, once she gets to know you, she loves spending all of her time around you. She’ll be a lifelong constant companion for one lucky household. Let’s help find this beautiful dog her happily ever after.

KHS and City of Wichita Aim to Help Public Understand the Difference Between KHS and WAS

The Kansas Humane Society (KHS) and Wichita Animal Services (WAS) are excited to unveil a bright, new facelift to the front of their shared property in an effort to help customers and pet owners find their way. KHS WAS ColumnsWAS KHS

Since the two began sharing the property in 2009, the large columns out front were designed to point people to the appropriate entrance that fits their needs. However, these way-finders have often been overlooked, leaving many in the community still confused about which shelter they need to go to.

To summarize the services: To help alleviate that confusion and better serve the public, KHS and WAS came together to replace the text on the front columns to bright, attention-grabbing letters. Plus, KHS is putting out a new, informational graphic that helps explains the services WAS provides, the services KHS provides, how the two groups are different, but also how they work together.

Through these combined efforts, KHS and WAS hope to help customers and pet owners get to the place they need to be quickly, which could result in being reunited with a pet more quickly, getting help for an abused animal, or even adopting a new friend.

  • If you FOUND a stray, you’ll need to take it to WAS.
  • If you have LOST a pet, you’ll need to go to WAS to look for it.
  • If you need to LET GO of a pet you own but can no longer keep, you need to do that at KHS.
  • If you want to ADOPT, you can do that at KHS.
  • If you need to report ANIMAL ABUSE, call WAS.

Together, we help care for thousands of animals in our community every year and each organization is a valuable resource to our area. We hope with the public’s help, and better understanding of how we work, we can continue to grow and serve more animals every year.

To contact KHS with questions about services, please call (316) 524-9196. To contact WAS with questions about their services, please call (316) 350-3360.
