2017 PieChartKansas Humane Society (KHS) is celebrating another successful year. In 2017, the organization reached a 93% save rate, the highest in the shelter’s history. Since moving to its current facility in 2009, the organization’s save rate has dramatically increased.

Of the 12,209 animals that came to KHS in 2017, 8,973 were adopted, 1,701 were transferred to rescue and 418 pets were reunited with their owners, for a total of 11,092 animals who found homes. The community’s commitment to adoption led to an increase in the organization’s save rate from 87% in 2016 to a record setting 93% in 2017.

KHS provided care and services for an additional 3,653 animals in 2017. The organization performed 2,784 low cost, donor subsidized spay and neuter surgeries to address pet overpopulation and decrease the number of animals entering the facility. KHS continues to work with local rescue organizations to find placement for animals, and provide subsidized medical services.

KHS also saw innovation and results from its barn cat program, designated kennel cough lofts and adoption areas, veteran’s fund, military adoption program and additional programs. Youth education programs impacted 19,027 children in our community and provided critter camp scholarships to 92 children from low income households.

“I’m so grateful for the continued support we receive from the Wichita community,” said Mark Eby, CEO of KHS. “Our employees and volunteers work hard to save lives every day, and I’m proud of the work we’re doing.”
