When and Why Personal Information Is Collected

When you adopt an animal from the KHS shelter or one of our satellite adoption locations, report to the KHS that you have lost or found an animal, take part in one of our events, claim a lost pet, become an KHS volunteer, or donate to the organization, there is specific information that we require from you. The information collected will be essential for identifying or contacting you, processing financial payments and/or providing receipts. The information we collect may include your
  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone number(s)
  • E-mail address
  • Pet & veterinary information
  • Credit card number & expiration date
To meet our animal welfare obligations and to make your experience more positive, we may need to collect more information than may seem usual.
