Leavenworth County Humane Society, Inc. (LCHS, Inc.)
is the ONLY organization working to build and operate
a 21st century no-kill pet animal shelter to serve all Leavenworth County residents.
Leavenworth Humane Society was first documented in the Leavenworth Times in 1885. By-laws were registered in 1888. The word “County” was added to our name in 1950. The original mission was to “prevent and punish cruelty to children and animals, and improve enforcement of the laws relating thereto.” Those objectives remain today.
The group had some stops and restarts over the years. With new founders, renewed vision and vitality, LCHS, Inc. was launched once again in June 2009.
Leavenworth County Humane Society, Inc.is committed to the future of Leavenworth County, working with city and county governments, participating in the Chambers of Commerce in Basehor, Leavenworth-Lansing Area, and Tonganoxie Business Associaiton, and with the Leavenworth County Development Corporation.
LCHS, Inc. works with human services agencies in Leavenworth County, because where animals suffer, people are at risk, and where people suffer, animals are at risk.
