Time has changed

Due to Covid-19 some campaigns and events have been put on hold. We will resume regular activity as soon as we can. Keep checking back or call our office at (316)283-0839.

  • Ride for the Dogs

    CHECK THE DATE. RIDE FOR THE DOGS IS BACK! Ride for the Dogs is Caring Hands Humane Society’s signature fundraising event. This Poker Run was created to generate revenue for the dogs and puppies that Caring Hands cares for. The event has grown steadily over the years, from a tiny group of 25 particants to around 200. We created this campaign for everyone to contribute at various impact levels. Be sure to review the ways you can make an impact and please share this page with your family and friends. Your involvement is critical to our success and contributing to the care of our homeless animals. Thank you again for your help.

  • Miles for Mutts

    Miles with Mutts meets every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. New runners/walkers should meet at 7:00AM, returning runners/walkers can meet at 7:30, we will begin shortly after. Every participant must sign the waiver (provided at the run) before taking off. Group meets in the parking lot next to the Blue Sky Sculpture at Centennial Park. Only 4-5 Caring Hands dogs will be in attendance, so each participant will not have a dog each time.


*COVID  We are doing everything we can to ensure the comfort and safety of our shelter animals, staff, volunteers and community.

CHHS is making temporary changes to reduce the risk of spreading the illness. Our primary goal is to reduce the number of people going in and out of our building. 

  • VISITING: We are not allowing visiting at this time without intention to adopt or
    foster pets. We are limiting contact with our animals to prevent the spread of the virus.
  • SNYP: Please call ahead and we will come to your vehicle to assist you.
  • ADOPT/FOSTER: If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, we ask that you fillout an application online. Once this is completed, you can call us to check on the status of the application. We are asking that you wait to visit with the animals until your application has been approved, and only visit with the animals that you are seriously interested in. DOG MEETS will be done outdoors at this time. CATS will be allowed one visitor at a time in our visitation room. We will schedule a time for you to come visit the animal you are interested in. Please wait in your car and call when you are waiting to be assisted.
  • OWNER SURRENDER: CALL AHEAD TO SCHEDULE. We will meet you at your vehicle so that you do not have to come into the building. Please call and let us know you are in the parking lot waiting to be assisted. We are asking that you call us at 316-283-0839 to schedule a time to surrender your animal(s). We are aiming to reduce the frequency of this,
    as a shelter environment is not going to be the best option for them at this time. If you are needing some kind of assistance to keep your pet for at least the next two weeks, please get in touch with us as we may be able to help with your situation. We will only accept surrenders from our required locations: HARVEY COUNTY residents not living within any city limits, NEWTON residents, NORTH NEWTON residents, and BURRTON residents.
  • STRAYS: CALL AHEAD. We will meet you at your vehicle so that you do not have to come into the building. Please call and let us know you are in the parking lot waiting to be
    assisted. We are asking to please work with your community if you find a stray pet to attempt to find owners. We can also share photos on our page to help with attempting to
    find owners before bringing a lost pet here. 
  • VOLUNTEERS: No volunteer duties at this time, unless it is related to Adventure Tails.

IF you are bringing an animal for any reason, please leave your animal in your vehicle to limit the amount of exposure from animal to person and animal to animal, until a staff
member can direct you on our procedures.


Following our temporary guidelines is the best way that you can help support us during this time. We thank you all for your understanding. For all questions and concerns, please call us at 316-283-0839.


Please call ahead.
