SEK Humane Society sees oldest resident adopted | KSNF/KODE

PITTSBURG, Ks. — Animal shelters across the country are getting help finding forever homes for their residents.

This weekend, several animal shelters opened for Clear the Shelters Weekend.

This is part of the ongoing campaign of the same name that aims to reduce or eliminate adoption fees at shelters during the month of August.

Since its inception in 2015, Clear the Shelters has helped hundreds of thousands of cats and dogs find new homes.

This now includes Jack, the oldest resident of the Southeast Kansas Humane Society.

“He was a very special case, a few years ago he was found locked in the toilet during the winter, he was just skin and bones, we didn’t think he would make it. He’s been through almost a year of physical recovery through therapy,” says SEKHS Director Jasmine Kyle, “So that’s it, it’s a very bittersweet moment because a lot of our staff have grown up with him for the past few years, but that’s it to see these kids finally walk out that door into a house. We really are the grandparents taking care of the kids until the parents come to pick us up.

If you would like to adopt your own pet, the Southeast Kansas Humane Society will be hosting an adoption event next Sunday at 1 p.m. at Lakeside Park.

All adoption fees will be waived.
