A 510 Organ Street, Fort Leavenworth, KS 66027 shelter helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
1 - 16 of 16 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We serve the Fort Leavenworth, Kansas community. We have a small facility and can only accept strays found on post by Military Police and pets relinquished by post residents. But we are happy to adopt to anyone who qualifies! Military affiliation is not required!
Our mission is to provide a safe and healthy environment for pets while working to ensure their placement into forever homes.
Our facility is overseen by FMWR but is all volunteer staffed. We pride ourselves on the level of dedication as we are there for the love of the pets. Our volunteer duties range from walking dogs to cleaning kennels to volunteer recruitment and coordination.
We are proud to say we do not euthanize for need of space. We are a low-kill facility in that we minimize it to medical issues and extreme behavior issues. We have treated dogs for heartworm and other treatable medical issues to make them adoptable; we do not base our decisions on a pre-set rule but a guideline that allows us to handle every pet on a case-by-case basis.
Summer hours: Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. open to the public; closed Sunday and Monday. If these hours do not work with your schedule please don't hesitate to contact us. We have volunteers who are willing to meet outside of those hours for serious inquiries.
Our volunteers and adoptable pets can be seen at several public events such as the Fort Leavenworth PAIR Day (please stop by our booth/table and meet some of our volunteers and the furbabies they bring), running/walking with adoptable dogs in races and dropping by the farm supply store with an adoptable dog in tow or strolling through the farmer's market to help socialized dogs and find them matches.
We always need volunteers! Please contact us if you are interested. Commitment can range from a lot to not much time at all. We need help with regular shifts to care for animals, covering hours of operation, cleaning kennels, walking dogs, cuddling kittens, etc.
