The HSLFKS was formed in 2016 as a separate lobbying affiliate of the Humane Society Legislative Fund, one of the nation's leading animal protection organizations. We recognized the need for public policy changes for animals in the state of Kansas and the HSLFKS has increased the public policy work of the humane movement for companion animals and continues to build an army of trained political activists.

While The HSUS and other animal welfare organizations tackle a vast array of issues in the education, prevention and response of animal cruelty and suffering, there is a recognition that passing critical legislation to protect animals on the state level must be an important component of the humane movement. The HSLFKS works to ensure that animals have a voice throughout the halls of our state government and with the state lawmakers in a position to pass legislation to address the suffering and abuse of animals.
