Face Coverings Required at KHS

The Kansas Humane Society (KHS) is complying with the Sedgwick County Emergency Public Health Order to protect our staff, volunteers and members of the community. Until further notice, all visitors to KHS must wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth, at all times while at KHS. This requirement does not apply to children 5 years old and under or to individuals who are unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition.

We thank you for helping us keep our staff, volunteers and guests safe and healthy so that we are able to continue providing care and shelter for homeless animals.

KHS also requests that visitors continue to observe safe social distancing, even while wearing face coverings. If you do not have an appropriate face covering when you arrive at KHS, a limited amount of single use face masks will be available for purchase for $2 each.

KHS will continue to limit the number of guests in our building at one time to follow guideline for limits on the size of gatherings. Please help us by limiting the size of your group when visiting KHS. While indoors and outdoors, please maintain at least 6 feet of space between yourself and others.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
