KHS Pet Adoption

Thank you for your interest in adopting a pet from the Kansas Humane Society! Our animal shelter gives you the opportunity for dog adoption, cat adoption, and other animals. KHS is dedicated to bringing pets and owners together to create a humane community.


  • Must be 18 years of age or older (or accompanied by an adult)
  • Have a current photo ID
  • Be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your adopted companion.

When you arrive at the Kansas Humane Society, we’ll ask you fill out an Adopter Survey. This one-page survey tells us what your kind of pet you’re looking for and helps us determine which animals might best suit your lifestyle.

Need More Time?

You may place the pet on "hold," reserving that pet for you until closing time the following business day. The hold fee is $30 and may be applied towards your adoption fee; otherwise, the deposit is non-refundable and treated as a donation.

Depending on the number of guests we’re serving, the pet adoption process can take anywhere from 60-90 minutes.


Once you've explored the adoption floor, let our pet adoption counselors know which animal(s) you'd like to meet. They’ll take you to one of our quiet, private visiting rooms to give you and the animal a chance to get to know each other. We encourage visits by all members of the household especially other pets and kids!

About Lonely Hearts Club and HIPP: Through our Lonely Hearts Club, we offer discounted adoption fees for special pets who due to age, size, or other reasons may need extra help being adopted. In order to continue this important program and save animal lives, our HIPP (High Profile Pets) program adoption fees help underwrite those reduced adoptions. HIPP fees for an in-demand pet may be higher than our standard fees and are determined on a case-by-case basis.
