On December 27, 2011, the Kansas Humane Society (KHS) accepted an owner surrender named Lucy, a friendly and healthy one year old Labrador. KHS killed Lucy within 10 minutes of intake in apparent violation of Kansas state law, which requires a three day holding period for all animals including owner surrenders.

      How shameful, that - of all places - a "humane" society would not only violate legal statutes, but would end the life of a loving companion whose only crime was to miss her human to such great lengths!

      Separation anxiety is often successfully overcome through appropriate training: I know, having saved the life of another similarly afflicted canine - when the entire foster network of a rescue organization failed him. Even heavily "medicated", he was perceived to be uncontrollably destructive. Within three weeks - sans ANY medication whatsoever - I was able to place him in a loving forever home where he resides to this day (some seven years later)...

      All it requires is patience, love, and a determination NOT to fail them: If that's not the purpose of a "humane" society, I'd like to know what is?

      We have sociopathic mass murderers sitting on death row for decades, yet an innocent one-year old dog is executed within 10 minutes of being dropped off at the "Humane" Society? How "Humane" is that?

      No excuse for this, it is murder. Do these people at the Kansas HUMANE Society (is this a joke?) get paid each time an animal is euthanised? I think they should call themselves the Kansas Kill Shelter; at least people would know what to expect and maybe take an animal elsewhere.

      This is a flagrant abuse of the trust that people have put in the Kansas Humane Society. In inquiry should be made as to other senseless deaths.
