We have been working with a newly formed humane society called D.A.W.G.S. (Domestic Animal Welfare Group of Stevens Co.) With their help we have been able to medically treat some of our adoptable animals.
We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.
.::Who We Are::.
We are Animal Control for Hugoton Police Department. We are a Kill Shelter. So if you are interested in one of our animals contact us as soon as possible, our animals lives depend on it. We house dogs at large and strays.We are responsible for enforcing City Animal Ordinances. We do not have facilities to house cats or other animals, so therefore we must pay to board at our local Veterinarians office. This is often beyond our Financial means.We often depend on donations to our Benevolence Fund to save a life, if you would like to help please send your donation to:
Hugoton Animal Shelter
P.O. Box 788
Hugoton, KS 67951
((DONATIONS ARE APPRECIATED NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR LARGE!))
....sometimes we barely keep are heads above water!

.::Did you know?::.
Each day 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. - and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. Put another way, for every person that is born, 15 dogs and 45 cats are also born. You do the math, there is no way we can find homes for them all. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals from here to eternity. As a result, every year 4 to 6 million animals are euthanized because there are no homes for them.
