Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

McPherson County Humane Society is the only no-kill animal shelter in central Kansas, serving McPherson, Saline, Reno, Harvey, Sedgwick Counties and others outside of our area as well.

About Our Shelter:

The McPherson County Humane Society was founded in 1979. We promote animal welfare and work hard to prevent animal abuse and/or neglect. We constantly stress the need and benefit of having all pets spayed or neutered! We receive NO funding other than donations and membership dues. We operate with a 12-member board of directors but, as with most non-profits, a small handful of people do most of the work for the organization. We have a stellar reputation of cleanliness and calmness at our cat shelter where we comfortably house around 100 cats at any given time. We are very proud of this reputation. Every one of our animals is tested, vacinnated, and spayed/neutered (age appropriate) before leaving our shelter. We utilize a foster program for dogs. Two very part-time staff clean our shelter six mornings per week and a volunteer cleans every evening. In addition other volunteers are often on-site feeding, administering meds, etc.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our cat shelter is open to the public every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:00 - 7:00 pm. We are very happy to make appointments with potential adopters any other time that works for them. We want to be as accessible as we can to people who want to meet our kitties. Parties interested in adopting a dog make an appointment directly with the foster. We use Facebook and Petfinder.com to feature adoptable animals, impounds/found animals, and emergency animal issues. We have a mass email account that is utilized as well. The local newspaper features a bi-weekly ad of adoptable pets sponsored by local businesses. We have participated in local animal adoption campaigns by temporarily placing animals in pet stores, etc.

Our Adoption Process:

An adoption application is required including personal and vet references. We give careful and thorough consideration to each applicatiion received. Our cat adoption fee is $45 but is typically waived for adult cats. Dogs are $75. Most of our functions are performed by volunteers with full-time jobs but we strive to process applications asap.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
