We at Pawnee County Humane Society are dedicated to saving as many animals as possible. However, we have limited space at the shelter, and because of our partnership with the City of Larned, we have to give priority to city strays. Due to space limitations we are unable to take in every animal.
If you would like to surrender your animal due to circumstances that make it difficult to no longer keep your pet, you must call the shelter first to find out if there is room to take your pet in. If we don't have room, we can put your name on a wait list and contact you when a space opens up.
Surrendering a pet should be considered as a last resort and we would like to help you keep your pet if at all possible. For that reason we provide counseling and information that might help you keep your pet instead of surrendering him or her to us.
If you do decide to surrender your pet, please be aware of the surrender fees listed to the right.
