Petfinder Foundation Emergency Medical Care Grant for Man Man
KHS has received a $1,000 grant to cover expenses of medical care for Man Man, the 9 year-old paralyzed Dachshund. THANK YOU!
"Thank you to the Petfinder Foundation for the emergency medical grant providing much needed care for Man Man" -Mark Eby, President/CEO.
Man Man's Story
Man Man is a 9 year old Dachshund who came to us with a ruptured disc in his back that unfortunately left his back legs paralyzed. But since coming to the shelter, the KHS community has really come together to help this little dog. One of our volunteers took the time to take the photos, our staff helped to upgrade his wheelchair, two different foster families stepped up to bring him into their home and take him to his vet appointments, and the staff at Countryside Pet Clinic have been helping him to get back on his feet with a number of therapies. He underwent both laser and water therapy, where he swam and walked on an underwater treadmill. Both of those treatments have helped him significantly. Man Man is now happy and healthy in his forever home, and we couldn't have done it without all the community support.
Thank you to:

This year the Kansas Humane Society reached a new milestone. For the first time in our history, we've saved more than 10,000 lives. The increase in adoptions has also boosted our save rate to the highest we've ever had: 83%. Of the 12,519 adoptable animals that KHS cared for in 2015, 10,344 exited our doors. While there is not just one single reason for the increase in adoptions, several programs have consistently helped to save animal lives; Last year KHS doubled the number of animals sent to local rescues, and more than 1,700 animals were placed in foster homes until they could be adopted. The shelterâ€™s annual Woofstock event was also more successful than ever and brought in more than $240,000 to help the animals in KHSâ€™s care. And KHSâ€™s dedicated volunteers donated 81,531 hours of their time to KHS. In addition to finding placement for 10,344 animals, the Kansas Humane Society also helped thousands more pets through donor subsidized spay and neuter surgeries and brought closure to families through their end of life services. In all, the organization provided care and services for 16,211 animals in 2015. Everyone at the Kansas Humane Society would like to thank all of our supporters for helping us reach this amazing milestone and continuing to help us carry out our mission to save animal lives and serve as a resource for both pets and people in our community.
