NOTE: Our Pet Adoption Centers in Independence and Merriam will open at 2pm on Wednesday, January 16th.

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 grow your family!

In an effort to reduce the wait times for our guests, we will be moving to the following changes. Once you arrive, you will be able to view all available animals in our care. We will then ask for those interested in our dogs to select a maximum of *two* dogs to meet per visit, to allow plenty of time to meet each dog with your adoption counselor.

We appreciate all the community support to find adoptable homes for all our pets. For those who love stopping by to help socialize and play with our puppies and kittens but are not coming into adopt, we are happy to facilitate “play dates”. We encourage those interested in “play dates” to stop by on our lower traffic days, such as Thursdays. We would also like to invite everyone to sign up for our volunteer program!

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
