Leavenworth County Humane Society, Inc. was originally founded as Leavenworth Humane Society in 1885. With some short gaps in service, LCHS, Inc. is possibly the oldest humane organization in Kansas! The current iteration of the society originated in 2006.
Approximately 30 active volunteers and one part-time kennel care employee help this society flourish, which consists of pet animal sheltering and adoption, microchip implanting, trap/neuter/return assistance for feral/community/barn cats, vet care for cats at the US Penitentiary in Leavenworth, pet owner assistance (veterinary and training to keep pets in their homes), and programs for school and community groups. They’re currently working to establish a program with USP to train inmates as dog trainers and groomers, while preparing dogs for adoption.
Leavenworth County Humane Society, Inc. is the ONLY organization working to build and operate a no-kill pet animal shelter to serve all Leavenworth County residents. Their planned facility will be healthful, welcoming and sufficient for the next 30 years of estimated growth in Leavenworth County.
LCHS is currently planning a Howl ‘N’ Meow costume event for October 27 at 7 p.m. at JW Crancer’s in Leavenworth. $25 for members, $50 for non-members, people can join with ticket purchase or the night of the event. There will be silent auction items, raffle prizes, contests, games, entertainment, music and dancing! Tarot reading and photos with spiders and snakes included!
