Hi, I'm Rachel! I am a KSU vet student. I worked as a vet tech and dog walker for 5 years previously. I have two dogs (and a kitty!) of my own and treat every animal I interact with with the same love and respect I show my own.

Dog Boarding in Manhattan

Manhattan, Kansas, is a college town known for its love of K-State Wildcat football and agricultural prowess. While the love for animals is undeniable in this small town nestled the heartland of the United States, there are still homeless animals in the area looking for new fur-ever families.

The Riley County Humane Society is a non-profit, no-kill operation located in Manhattan, Kansas. The Humane Society doesn’t receive any funding from the government, United Way, or any national animal welfare organization, so donations, fundraising, and adoption fees are vital for the society to be able to care for animals and find them new homes. While there is no physical shelter location that houses animals, the Riley County Humane Society works with foster parents to care for dozens of animals in the area at any given time.

The T. Russell Reitz Animal Shelter houses, feeds, and provides medical care to animals in the city of Manhattan, as well as Riley County and Pottawatomie County. For the city of Riley, Junction City, Leonardville, Fort Riley, and Ogden, services are not provided, so a surrender fee is required for animals from these areas. The shelter seeks to educate the public on appropriate care of companion animals and responsible pet ownership as well. The shelter also works with animal control to bring in homeless pets in the area.

If you are looking to bring a new pet into your home, consider contacting either of these organizations to meet your potential new pet.
