We are located in Merriam, Kansas with expert matchmakers ready to find you the perfect new addition to your family!


We rely on local dollars to help promote adoption, outreach, veterinary care, and a better life for pets.


Volunteers are our lifeblood and we would not be able to carry out our life-saving mission without their support!

There are so many ways to help the thousands of homeless pets that visit Great Plains SPCA each year – we couldn’t do it without you!
