WICHITA, Kan. – The Kansas Humane Society (KHS) today announced that Mark Eby, President and CEO will retire in April 2021.

“We would like to thank Mark for his service and commitment to KHS during his time with the organization,” said Pamela Ammar, KHS Board Chair. “His dedication to the lifesaving mission of KHS led the organization through incredible growth and change. Mark placed focus on strengthening relationships with the community and our rescue partners which led to more animal lives saved than ever before in the history of KHS.”

Eby joined KHS as President and CEO in 2013. Under his leadership, the organization’s save rate skyrocketed from 72% to 94% in the past 4 years. The number of animals that receive services through KHS has grown to around 16,000 per year.

Eby said he will miss working to help the people of Wichita. “Since I came to Wichita in 2001, I’ve worked in the non-profit sector. I’m proud of the work I’ve done to help thousands of families and animals over that time. I love KHS, and I will miss all of the people that work there, the volunteers who give their time, and the donors that allow us to help the number of animals we do. Without everyone working together, none of it would be possible. I know KHS will be in great hands and continue to move forward to help even more animals in the future. Thank you Wichita for all of your support.”
