About the Kansas Humane Society
Since 1888, the Kansas Humane Society has been committed to helping the abandoned and homeless animals in our community. For over 128 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.
It's the 20th Celebration of Peace, Love and Pets! And to kick off Woofstock, a fundraiser for the Kansas Humane Society, is the annual Woofstock Online Auction. Wichita's favorite dog-friendly event is on Saturday, October 1, but through September 28th at 7 pm you can bid on over 80 items all to help the Kansas Humane Society.
The Woofstock Online Auction is now open so bid now to support thousands of animals. Bidding is open from September 14th until September 28th at 7:00pm*

The Kansas Humane Society is closed Monday, September 5th for Labor Day. Please visit us on Tuesday during regular business hours from 11 am to 6:30 pm. Thank you to our amazing staff & volunteers for making sure our animals are taken care of during this time!
The Kansas Humane Society has always been committed to helping the abandoned and homeless animals in our community, but with more than 16,000 animals in need of our care each year, we certainly couldn't do it alone. As a non-profit we depend on the generous people in the Wichita community; year after year, the local businesses and people have pitched in to help us carry out our mission. And we'd like to say a big THANK YOU!
This year's All For The Paws Benefit Concert was a huge success. Thanks to Granger Smith, Earl Dibbles Jr. and the Adam Capps Band for putting on a great show for all of our pet-loving, country music fans! And the crowd definitely didn't go hungry! Thanks to Noodles & Company, Hog Wild Pit BBQ, and Blue River Cantina for making sure everyone had something to munch on while they took in the show. Together with KFDI FM 101.3 and the Cotillion we raised $8,000 for animals in need.
THANK YOU - Papa Murphy's & On the Border West
Hungry animal lovers across Wichita also got the chance to help animals and enjoy a meal at the same time thanks to Papa Murphy's and On the Border Mexican Grill. Papa Murphy's raised a lot of "dough" -- over $2,000 -- by donating 25% of their pizza sales to KHS. And One the Border Mexican Grill generously donated 20% of their sales one night, raising a total of $300!
THANK YOU - Visual Fusion Graphic Design Studio
Local artists put their creativity and talent to work for the animals in our shelter. They made beautiful works of cat-inspired artwork for the Gallery In Heat exhibit during June's Final Friday event in Wichita. The Visual Fusion Graphic Design studio donated 30% of their proceeds to KHS and raised $800 for animals like the one's featured in their colorful artwork. THANK YOU - All Paws Pet Center All Paws Pet Center treated KHS and donated 5% of their treat sales through two weekends, raising a total of almost $600! We thank them for their support- all 3 Wichita locations participated, and we thank you for stocking up on treats to support our mission. THANK YOU - GreenAcres Market Bradley Fair Last Tuesday we were partying at the "Dog Days of Summer" event held by GreenAcres Market in Bradley Fair. There were lots of contests and competitions for people their four-legged friends! Plus, all proceeds came right back to help the animals at KHS. How cool is that?
