The mission of
CASTAWAYS ANIMAL SHELTER & SANCTUARY
is to serve as a advocate for animals by:
1) providing care, a safe haven, and adoption services for lost and abandoned animals with a goal of zero euthanasia;
2) educating the public on the humane treatment of animals and responsible pet ownership; and
3) helping to provide affordable spay/neuter services.
Castaways Animal Shelter & Sanctuary is incorporated as a non-profit organization with the intent to build a privately-funded NO-KILL shelter and sanctuary to serve the stray and abandoned animals in Chanute and the surrounding areas. Liz & Chris Wehlage have donated the use of land at 220th Rd & Harper Rd. Construction began in September, 2016 and is ongoing.
Board meetings are held monthly. Interested persons may call 620-432-3922.
All funds have been donated by concerned community members or generated by fund-raising activities.
