From June 1st, through July 31st, we have a huge goal to raise $350,000 to support our life saving mission. 

While the average cost of care per animal at the shelter is $751, our average adoption fee is just $130. The large gap between what we frequently need to invest in our pets to make them ready for adoption medically and behaviorally and our adoptions fees highlights how critically we need your financial support.

Great Plains SPCA relies on the wonderful generosity of our donors, volunteers, foster families, and supporters. Will you “Lend a Paw” this summer to help us reach our goal of $350,000?

Thank you so much for all you each give and do for the animals in our care. We simply could not do what we do without you – THANK YOU!

Lend A Paw Stories

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

Vance with his familySince 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.
