WICHITA, Kansas – The Kansas Humane Society is saving even more animals.

In 2003, the Kansas Humane Society saved just 23 percent of all the unwanted and homeless pets due to an outdated facility with limited resources.

In 2009, just before the new facility opened, it saved 44 percent.

Last year, in 2013, the Kansas Humane Society had a save rate of 73 percent or just over 8,379 pets and for the first quarter of 2014 the facility had a save rate of 86 percent.

The Kansas Humane Society euthanized about 4,000 animals last year.

“We are a reflection of our community, and I say our community is amazing,” said Mark Eby, President/CEO. “This growth is thanks to all of our supporters. Our generous donors, dedicated volunteers and staff, and all of those who have opened their homes to help the animals. It really is a community effort.”
