You helped match even more!!

What started out as a $45,000 Matching Challenge was increased to $70,000 and - WOW - the $70,000 match has been met! That means this year, you will have broken a record for the amount of money given and matched during our challenge! THANK YOU!

Every year, we have donors who offer to help us provide a matching challenge. That means any gift you give to KHS during that time will be doubled by generous donors. The first $45,000 of your gifts were matched, dollar for dollar, by the KHS Board of Directors. Then, thanks to the Decarsky Foundation and another generous donor, that Matching Gift Challenge was increased to $70,000.

Although this Matching Gift opportunity is over, you can always donate to KHS to help take care of the homeless and abandoned animals in our community. Every single dollar counts. We'll have other matching opportunities later in the year, as well as next year. We hope you'll donate now, and then particiapte again in our next Match!

Last year, you donated more funds than ever before during the April Match. You helped raise an amazing $143,242! We're still finalizing this year's total, but we expect it to be a record setting year - thanks to YOU!

PetSmart SN Blitz Graphic

UPDATE: Our first 100 spots for the Spay/Neuter Blitz are full and we’re unable to accept any more animals for this program at this time. However, we will offer this Blitz two more times later this year, so if you were not able to reserve a spot this time, please check back with KHS throughout the year. We will post again once more spots are available. Thank you!


KHS is excited to announce that we have received a generous grant from PetSmart Charities that will fund a Spay/Neuter Blitz program for 300 dogs in the 67211 area. Any pet owner living in this zip code, making less than $40,000 per year, with proof of income and proof of address, can now have their dog altered with a fee waived surgery at KHS until funds are exhausted. Each dog will also be microchipped, and owners will be provided with a collar, leash and custom tag. KHS will perform the surgeries in increments of 100, with the first 100 spots made available on Monday, April 24. The other 200 spots will be made available later in the year.

Severe Weather Seminar
It's that time of year again: severe weather season.
At KHS, we don't ever want anyone to be unprepared for severe weather, or not know what to do
with your pets when it does happen. That's why KHS is hosting a Severe Weather Seminar again this year to talk about severe weather preparedness, what to expect, and how to make sure you
and your pets stay safe.
KHS is bringing in representatives from the National Weather Service and the Sedgwick County Animal Response Team to talk about these important topics and answer any questions you may have.
 
WHEN: Monday, April 24th at 5:30pm
WHERE: KHS Learning Center, 3313 N. Hillside
WHO: Anyone! Open to the public
The event should last about one hour. Light refreshments will be served.
