Since 2001, Bone Appétit has been our annual celebration of the unique bond between humans and animals. Funds raised at this event go towards the care of the over 6,000 animals admitted to HHHS each year. These funds are vital to continuing our lifesaving mission as the Northeast Kansas Animal Resource Center.

We are proud of the fact that 75¢ of every dollar goes directly towards of the animals. As you may know, we receive no funding from local, state or federal taxes or the Humane Society of the United States. We rely solely on individuals like you.

The live auction and pet parade are the highlight of Bone Appétit. The pet parade is composed of dogs available for adoption at HHHS strutting their stuff down the catwalk in the latest doggy couture. Outfits are bid on right off their backs. Each doggy outfit includes other items.

Past live auction items have included both KU and K-State autographed materials, a year’s supply of Science Diet dog food provided by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, and various other items.

The live auction also offers the chance to have your pet be a star. We will be auctioning off the opportunity to have your dog become the spokesdog for our largest fundraiser, Paws in the Park.

Paws in the Park is the largest Topeka pet event! Your dog will be featured on Paws in the Park posters, brochures, commercials, the HHHS website, and the cover of the HHHS Pet Connections newsletter. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity.
