Our mission: To save, protect and improve the lives of animals, while strengthening the relationship between pets and their human companions.
Kansas City animal welfare has come a long way thanks to a community of devoted organizations, rescue groups and individual animal advocates. Great Plains SPCA collaborates with many of the other animal welfare agencies in the area, because together we can accomplish more.
But what sets us apart?
We are the Kansas City Metro’s most comprehensive No Kill animal welfare organization, serving more than 30,000 needy pets annually – more than any other agency in the area.
With our Merriam Campus and new Independence Campus, we are the only organization with a bi-state presence, and we are ready to transform Kansas City and beyond to a lifesaving No Kill community.
We proudly report a live-release rate of 96% or higher.
We offer a lifelong, full-circle approach for pets and their human companions with our three-pronged approach: prevention, adoption, retention.
