The Kansas Humane Society

Helping Animals & Saving Lives Since 1888

For over 128 years, the Kansas Humane Society has been committed to helping the abandoned and homeless animals in our community. Our animal shelter has 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. We offer an array of services that promote the human/animal bond, including pet adoption, dog training, behavior consultation, pet supplies, social media outreach, spay/neuter, end of life services, classroom field trips, youth education and community outreach.

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.
