Any glimpse into the life of an
animal quickens our own and
makes it so much the larger
and better in every way.

KCHA is always in need of compassionate people ready to make a difference in the lives of our shelter pets.  Help meet our physical needs by orchestrating a donation drive – check out our wishlist for our most used items and preferred brands of food.  We’re always in need of foster families, which provide respite care for animals not yet ready for adoption or when the shelter is over capacity. 

We’re looking for motivated, reliable volunteers we can depend on!  We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available, and we’re always looking for more ways to help you help us!  What can you do to help improve the lives of your local shelter pets?  If you have any questions or suggestions, please e-mail or

Volunteers should be willing to work a minimum of one scheduled shift every two weeks, for a minimum of three months. You can volunteer to help us out in a number of ways – get started by filling out an application today.
