Statistics

The Hutchinson Animal Shelter is a resource for all Hutchinson residents if they can no longer take care of their animals. We take in about 2,000 stray and owner surrendered animals each year. We strive to find placement for all the animals that enter our care each year. Some of the statistics are listed.

  •  Adoptions - Animals that are adopted out to the public each year.
  •  Euthanized - Animals that had to be euthanized due to medical or behavior reasons.
  •  Return to owner - Animals that come in as strays and the owner comes in to reclaim that animal.
  •  Transfer to another agency - Animals that are transferred to other other shelters or Rescue organizations to give them more opportunities.
