Surrender a Pet

Thank you for contacting us and we are sorry to hear you need to re-home your pet. Great Plains SPCA does not euthanize for space. We do not put a time limit on how long an animal can stay in the shelter so long as they are medically and behaviorally sound and not suffering. To practice that mission, we must maintain a schedule to be sure the animals here and animals coming in have space to live. This admissions process is how we put into practice that mission.

Please fill out online form below to submit a request to surrender a pet, and a member of our team will be in contact with you. We appreciate your patience when receiving a return response during this time. If you have lost or found a pet please visit our lost and found pet links on our website


Great Plains SPCA does not recommend using Craigs List to rehome pets.

Stop before you surrender!

Our shelter is full and we are out of space for large dogs—as are shelters across Kansas City and the country. Please consider an alternative before surrendering your large dog to a shelter.
