More than 250 Kansas animal welfare professionals to receive shelter and rescue training

More than 250 Kansas animal shelter and rescue professionals and volunteers will receive free training, resources and equipment from The Humane Society of the United States over the course of this three-year training program.

The trainings kick off the first round of the Humane Kansas shelter/rescue trainings and will be held August 14 through August 17. Experts from The HSUS will present information on building humane communities, understanding compassion fatigue, working with law enforcement agencies and other topics.

The HSUS is making a three-year investment in Kansas to expand the capacity of animal welfare officers to respond to animal cruelty, strengthen enforcement of state laws, and provide shelters, rescues and law enforcement agencies with services and training to expand their reach and decrease euthanasia. 

Midge Grinstead, senior state director for The HSUS, said: “We are very excited for the opportunity to support Kansas shelter and rescue staff with valuable services and training.”

For this effort, The HSUS is partnering with Kansas City, KS Animal Services, Golden Belt Humane Society, Great Plains SPCA, Kansas Animal Control Association, Tomahawk Live Trap and Kona Benellie. These trainings are made possible by both in-state and out-of-state supporters.
