Welcome To Caring Hands Humane Society


Pet Reunion

If you live in Newton, and your pet is picked up by animal control it will be brought to Caring Hands Humane Society. Call as soon as you find your pet missing.

Mighty Mouser

Are you in need of a working pet! We take in cats of all kinds - soft and lovable lap cats, your independent boss who keeps his household in order or your hard working outdoor cat who keeps you safe from vermin.

Adoption & Counseling

When deciding to bring a new pet home the more you do ahead of time, the better. Plenty of preparation is the key to creating a happy home life for you and your new pet.

Forever Loved Memorials

Memorialize your loved one. Caring Hands Humane Society offers communal and private cremation services.


Feral cats can be surrendered and adopted out as working cats. Feral cats within the city of Newton, KS, can become a part of our Trap-neuter-return program.

Spay/Neuter Vouchers

Caring Hands Humane Society participates in Spay/Neuter Your Pet program or SNYP. Learn how you can protect your pets from disease and suffering through this program.


With the help of those in our community, Caring Hands Humane Society has maintained the no-kill community status for three years. Each year, we are able to save more and more companion animals and place them in new forever homes. While they are here, we also try to provide the best quality of life possible for the furry (and feathered) friends entrusted to us.

Every bit of help, no matter how small, does make a difference towards expanding the scope of our operations – which has meant more lives saved!


Yes. You can adopt your foster animal. Let us know your intentions so we can get you started with the process. Our number one goal is to find forever homes and what better place to be than someone who already knows them.

Anyone who is 18 years old or older to volunteer alone, 16 years or older to volunteer with an adult.

Must be 18 years or older and have a valid driver’s license to attend special events.

Must not have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony related to animals.

Please fill out an application and we will get in touch with you.

If your pet is tagged or microchipped with current information, we will try to get in touch with you. If you find your pet is missing, call us as soon as possible so that a lost pet report can be made.

Some animals in shelters are saved from the streets and cruelty while some are given up by their families. Countless others never make it to shelters and suffer without someone to care for them. Spaying or neutering pets prevents unwanted litters, and is the most effective and humane way to save animals’ lives.

Please call your local animal control officer to report a crime.

After a year an a half, Molly is still the most tolerant, affectionate, and wonderful cat I have ever owned. She and my daughter are practically inseparable.


Thanks again to you and your staff for all of your help and caring about these beautiful cats and kittens. They are healthy and happy and a bit mischievous. I couldn’t have done this alone. My landlord was just too busy to do much with them and I tried to do what I could, but I never could have gotten to this point without Caring Hands Humane Society stepping up to the task and caring so much.


He was so sweet and playful, I knew that I wanted to make him a part of our family.  So with the help of my boss, we adopted him. I could not imagine my life without him.


A wonderful caring staff. All ready to help you find the perfect furry friend. I found my best friend there. I just adopted another puppy.


Caring Hands is so Amazing!! They truly care. This is the thrid animal we got from them. An we will adopted from them again. We had Bethany sad to say my fur baby got her Angel wings. Then our Beautiful cat Zippy we had about two years. Just a couple days ago we adopted Rufus. He is the best doggie. Thank you Caring hands for all your hard work you do. An your place is starting to look amazing. God Bless you all
