Make a Donation - Be a Hero for Pets!
We need you! Every day, Great Plains SPCA works to make the lives of community pets better! Your tax-deductible donation helps us continue the critical hands-on work we do for the animals that come through our doors each day. Together we can continue to make a difference in lives of animals and the people who love them.
How Your Donation Makes a Difference for each animal
Our average cost of care per animal is $751 per animal. The average adoption fee per animal is $130. That’s a cost of care gap on average of $621! Below are some of the services we provide all of our animals in our care and the cost of those services. Your donations are vital for use to help close the gap between cost of care and adoption.
Microchip and Registration
Medical Testing and Services
Join our Community Heroes Donation Wall

You can give this special gift online, or you can mail in a donation. If you are mailing us, simply include a note with details and we will send a personalized notification to you and your honoree. If you have any questions, please contact us at (913) 808-3425.

- Stocks and Bonds
A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
- Stocks and Bonds
A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to us.
- Retirement Assets
A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.
A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider making a gift and help further our mission.
Providing for Your Pets
There are two things to consider for the ongoing well-being of your pets. Who will care for them when I cannot and who will pay for their care? At Great Plains SPCA, we know that your pets are your family. Their care and comfort can continue uninterrupted should you become incapable of caring for them during your lifetime or as well as upon your death. We can provide the care your pets need at that time and we will work to find them a new loving home. To help cover the cost of their care while we find a adoptive family for them, a donation is required.
Please see the Pet Agreement for more details.
To learn more about how you can provide continued care for your pets and leave a lasting legacy for other local pets in need:
