Mission: The Kansas Humane Society is a community resource for pets and people, dedicated to enhancing the welfare of all companion animals.
Programs: Since 1888, the Kansas Humane Society has been committed to helping the lost, abandoned and homeless animals in our community. For over 125 years, we have helped hundreds of thousands of Wichita’s pets by providing them care, comfort, hope, and most importantly, a second chance at a new life.
The Kansas Humane Society is a community resource for pets and people by offering an array of services to promote the human/animal bond, including pet adoption; dog training; behavior consultation; pet supplies; social media outreach including mobile apps, spay/neuter services for the pets of low income families; youth education and community outreach; as well as private cremation and other end of life services for pets.
The Kansas Humane Society is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and receives no federal, state or local tax dollars, support from the Humane Society of the United States, is not a United Way agency, and depends entirely on private donations and fees for service.
As a past board member and president of the board, I have been able to see the Kansas Humane Society from the inside out. I've spoken with many people who were satisfied and many who were dissatisfied with the Humane Society and have found many, many more who liked the organization. The goal of the Humane Society is to find homes for all adoptable animals which is not as easy as some may think when they have 17,000 animals coming through the doors on a yearly basis. Working with animals in this forum is extremely difficult. But the Humane Society does their level best to make the lives of the animals in their shelter as comfortable as possible while showing as much compassion as possible. It's a great organization.
