Leonidas is a registered therapy dog who regularly attends Behavioral Health Court in Douglas County District Court. He has become a good pal to all Court Security deputies.

The Sheriff’s Office is grateful for its partnership and work with the Lawrence Humane Society and its staff on animal-welfare calls in the county. Thanks to Katie Barnett, animal welfare counsel at the Lawrence Humane Society, and her husband Anthony Barnett for this sweet photo.

We have been alerted by our veterinarian that Kennel Cough is going around town and has been brought into our facility. As the weather gets warmer people have spent more time at dog parks and socializing outside of our facility, the opportunity for dogs to catch and spread Kennel Cough has also increased. Additionally, with spring break upon us, it will be a busy boarding time for a few weeks.

As always, we are vigilant about monitoring our packs for any dogs that are showing symptoms and adhering to our cleaning protocols to prevent transmission. But, we can use your help. Please watch out for symptoms and if your dog isn’t feeling well, give us a call and consider taking a break from daycare. We appreciate your help keeping our packs healthy!

COURT DECLARES LEAWOOD, KANSAS PIT BULL BAN UNCONSTITUTIONAL

In 2017, an adorable black and white puppy was adopted to a loving family living in Kansas City, Missouri, who named her Lucy. Shortly thereafter, the family relocated to the neighboring suburb of Leawood, Kansas, where they bought a home and settled into their neighborhood. A couple years later, amidst the start of a global pandemic, Leawood, KS, animal control officers issued a citation to the family for owning a “dangerous animal.” But Lucy didn’t do anything dangerous at all; she was merely identified by Leawood Animal Control as looking too much like a “pit bull” and Leawood bans “pit bull” looking dogs. Lucy’s family retained Barnett Law Office and Thompson-Hall to fight the City of Leawood for her right to keep her beloved Lucy.

On January 14, 2022, the Court granted our Motion to Dismiss, declaring Leawood’s pit bull ban unconstitutional on its face and as it was applied to Lucy.

To learn more about this judgment, and what it means for the City of Leawood, check out the link below:

Happy New Year from HSH 🎉 We want to thank each and everyone one of you who follow us, our clients, and the people of Lawrence for supporting us this past year.

Getting our Wakarusa location up and running was a huge accomplishment and one we could not have done without you, and certainly not without our incredible staff who works so hard to take amazing care of all of our dogs. The heart of Home Sweet Home is the people who trust us with the care of their beloved dogs and the workers who come here every day to deliver that care. We have more growth and plans on the horizon and we are excited to share as they come to fruition. We are grateful for last year, and excited about the next 🤩

Our biggest, most inclusive album yet! Thank you all for an incredible year 🤩

Back at work!

We are delighted that Leonidas the Amazing 3-Legged Dog will become a regular member of the Behavioral Health Court team! Research shows that animal therapy can benefit people who face behavioral health challenges – just petting a dog can release endorphins, the body’s natural “feel-good” transmitters. And the benefits go much deeper than that. Our office enjoyed meeting Leonidas last summer.

Clear the Shelter Day is Saturday! 💙 Help spread the word or adopt your new best friend!

10 adoptions are on us 🐾

THIS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18TH, AT 10AM - ALL ADOPTIONS FEES WAIVED!

Every year, the Lawrence Humane Society participates in a nationwide event called “Clear the Shelter.” Hundreds of shelters across America host their largest adoption event all year long and hope to get all their animals adopted!

We will strive to clear OUR shelter THIS SATURDAY, September 18, starting at 10am. The event goes until 6pm, or when the last animal is adopted (whichever comes first.) All adoption fees are waived. One animal per household. Please bring a valid photo ID!
We will be utilizing our virtual waitlist so you can get in line and receive an estimated wait time for when it's your turn to come into the building! You must be on-site when it is your turn so make sure you're at Lawrence Humane when it's your turn in line! Once you've arrived and you're first in line, an adoption counselor will welcome you inside our building and you can meet the animals you're interested in.

Masks (and kindness) are required. Would you please share this post and help us spread the word?

I have been working with law enforcement since 2014 developing and implementing a program to teach about dog body language and improve outcomes when dogs are encountered in the field. This work means a great deal to me and I am very proud of it and was grateful to team up with my wife and be able to bring it to my community. Lawrence PD was great, we really enjoyed the day, and we look forward to working together more in the future. - Anthony

In January, we posted about Stewart, a young shephard mix who had become over-stressed at the shelter and was in urgent need of respite in a foster home. A family stepped forward offering Stewart temporary housing where he could decompress and begin to live like a happy, healthy dog with plenty of outlets to explore, play, and rest. With each passing day, we've seen Stewart become more at ease in his surroundings as he has settled into a routine in his foster home. He quite enjoys outside time sunbathing, playing with his toys, and chasing squirrels. He shares his foster home with a senior dog who he wishes wanted to match his energy level and play with him more (and who wishes Stewart wanted to play less in return). To provide him an outlet for play, Stewart visits Home Sweet Home Dog Resort once-a-week and romps with his furry friends for a few hours and then goes home tired. In addition to his love of the outdoors, Stewart likes to help his humans around the house and fancies himself a project supervisor, overseeing the ex*****on of all household chores and DIY projects. In between play and work, he enjoys a healthy amount of naps followed by more naps. At night he slumbers peacefully with his teenage human. We are so grateful for his foster family for giving him relief from extreme kennel stress at the shelter and restoring his quality of life. As lovely as this update is--and it is quite lovely--Stewart is ready to make the final move to a permanent home. He's looking for a human (or multiple humans) who will appreciate the love of a spirited dog, full of curiosity and playfulness (when he is not napping of course), and who gives him time outdoors where he can just be a dog. And if there is another playful dog, that would be a BIG bonus. Our followers shared Stewart's request for help far and wide in January and because you did we were able to give Stewart what he needed. Will you help us do it again so we can finally get him to his last and best home?

Hi! Do you have webcams of the boarding and daycare spaces for pet parents to access? If not, are there any plans to have them in the future at the HSH West facility?
How often do you guys take photos and post? I’ve been looking to see if there are any of our fur babies who’ve been there since Thursday and haven’t seen any 🥺
Listen to some words from our customer Anthony Barnett owner of Home Sweet Home Dog Resort and his advice to business owners! #smallbusinessowner #smallbusiness #weloveourcustomers #thankyou
Thank you all so much for the kind thoughts, and flowers in memory of Lahna! She is definitely missed, every day! ❤️
I've been wanting to let you all know that two weeks ago yesterday, we had to make the decision to let Lahna go. The weekend before that Tuesday, her rear legs just quit working, or she decided that she was done trying. She always enjoyed daycare and boarding at Home Sweet Home for all of her 14 years! I want to thank you all for taking care of my girl all of those years. R.I.P. my pretty girl, you will always be in my heart.
Please be courteous in dropping off and picking up your pup, pulling into the handicapped spot and jumping out with your pet cause you may be in a hurry is disrespectful of the purpose for that handicapped spot and of the ones patiently waiting in their cars who arrived before you. Post inspired by the young lady that did this 30 minutes ago and the increase of experiencing this in the last several months .
