Great Plains SPCA is one of the largest No-Kill animal shelters in Kansas City, offering comprehensive resources for pets that strengthen the relationship between pets and their human companions. Serving nearly 10,000 pets annually, Great Plains SPCA works to save, protect and improve the lives of animals, by providing humane sheltering, adoptions, unparalleled behavior and training as well as the HERO Team’s humane community outreach.

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!
