Any force that can do work has the potential to cause a change in kinetic energy in accordance with the work energy theorem which states that the net work done on an object equals its change in kinetic energy.
Everyday non-conservative contact forces, like those involved when you push an object in a horizontal direction, can result in a change in kinetic energy as long as the net work done is not zero.
An example is if you push an object from rest on a frictionless horizontal surface. The work you do accelerates the object giving it kinetic energy.
An example where the change in kinetic energy is zero is when you push an object with constant velocity on a surface with friction. The positive work you do when pushing the object a distance $d$ equals the negative work done by kinetic friction over the same distance $d$, for a change in kinetic energy of zero. The negative friction work takes the energy you gave to the object and dissipates it as heat at the contacting surfaces.
Hope this helps.
