KHS is following the guidance of the CDC, local public health officials and the Sedgwick County Stay at Home order in our work to reduce the potential for coronavirus to spread to more people.
KHS will temporarily close to the public starting Wednesday, March 25. During the next week, we will evaluate how to continue offering important services to the community and focus on deep cleaning. The health and safety of our employees and animals is our top priority. This timeline is subject to change depending on what guidance we receive from local public health officials. Please check back in here or on our social media for updates.
Staff will continue to meet the daily needs of our shelter pets, who are not at risk of contracting or transmitting coronavirus (Covid-19), and employees in other departments will be working remotely in an effort to minimize interactions that may unnecessarily expose people to this virus.
We appreciate your understanding and patience while we work to ensure the safety of the public, our staff and volunteers.
