Who We Are

We are a city-funded animal shelter thatís been in operation since January 3, 2006. Our Animal Services department consists of three animal control officers, four shelter technicians and one animal services director.

We strive to provide quality service, excellent customer service and an invaluable assistance to the animals and citizens in our community.

Our facility comfortably houses approximately 48 dogs and 37 cats. We do not have a set time frame on the amount of time an animal will remain safe in our shelter; that is determined on the health of the animal, adopt-ability and if we have available kennel space. Unfortunately, some times animals do have to be humanely euthanized due solely to lack of kennel space; or that may be an animalís fate due to medical or behavioral issues. We do behavior assessments on dogs over six months of age to assure ourselves and the community that we are adopting out great dogs to their forever homes. We also work with many different rescue organizations to transfer out as many animals as we can so that they may safely find their way to a new home.
We offer many programs at our shelter that we are proud of and we are ALWAYS looking for more people to join us and our cause. We have a volunteer and foster program available!
If you would like more information about the Hutchinson Animal Shelter, please visit our web site at, email or call (620) 694-1924.
Please spay and neuter and do not shop, ADOPT!

Adopting A Friend

Come to the shelter to visit with an animal that you may be interested in adopting. You can fill an application out online to get the process started! All dogs in the home must be current on vaccinations. A deposit is required to hold an animal for adoption. You are welcome to pay this $20 deposit by phone or at the shelter. This is non-refundable if you do not adopt this animal but does go towards the adoption fee if you end up adopting that pet.

Includes the following:
  • Spay/Neuter surgery
  • General Dewormer
  • Distemper vaccine
  • Rabies vaccine (if 4 months old or older)
