About Adoption

Great Plains SPCA has bi-state Pet Adoption Centers in Merriam, KS and Independence, MO with expert Matchmakers ready to find you the perfect furry family member! Let us help you grow your family!

When you arrive, you will be able to view all available animals in our care. Once you find an animal or animals you are interested in, our experienced Adoptions Counselors will be able to assist you with any questions you have. The Adoption process can take anywhere from 45 – 90 minutes, depending on time of day and wait times. Our goal is to provide you and your family a warm and welcoming experiencing and help you to find your perfect match with one of our adoptable pets.

We appreciate all the community support in finding adoptable homes for all of our pets. Those of you who love stopping by to help socialize and play with our puppies and kittens are encouraged to sign up for our volunteer program!

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

I’m looking for an active home with someone(s) that wants to teach me lots of new things.  I already know some commands but I sure would like to learn more. I’m easy to teach because I love my treats too.
