This year, Great Plains SPCA has taken in 1,100 animals, arranged adoptions for 864 dogs and cats, found Foster homes for 324 pets, provided more than 153,000 pounds of pet food to those in need, and helped 382 families through our HERO (Humane. Education. Resources. Outreach.) program.

Great Plains SPCA relies on the generosity of our donors, volunteers, and foster families to help us carry out our mission to serve more than 6,000 homeless pets annually. Throughout these recent unsettling weeks, the Great Plains SPCA team has been at the shelter every day, caring for vulnerable animals and assisting the people who love them.

As we adjust to life in these ever-changing times, a generous donor is helping us continue our mission by matching all donations up to $150,000. Will you “Lend a Paw” for shelter pets in need? Your donation, no matter how small, can make a material difference to the lives of our shelter pets. Please consider making a donation to Great Plains SPCA.

Your support will help our pets find the path to their best life.

Since 1966, we’ve been saving animals in the Kansas City community, sheltering them and matching them with loving, adoptive homes. What we do is seldom easy or inexpensive, but it is vital to saving lives. Shelter operational costs aren’t always glamorous, but these needs are often the most important for our shelter. 

Our supporters come in all shapes and sizes. Donors. Volunteers. Adopters. Fosters. Supporters. And the generosity of this Great Plains SPCA family makes our mission a reality for every pet and person we see. Great Plains SPCA is so grateful for you, for helping make our mission a reality for every pet and person we see!

As we think of the pets and people who have touched our lives, we ask for you to ‘Lend A Paw’ in support with a generous donation to help us make more happy families.
