Give a Wag! Gives to Kansas City Shelters

The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City is the largest shelter in Kansas City. Since opening its doors in 1912, this facility has proven to be the most paw-some shelter around. In 1994, the shelter made headlines by becoming the first no-kill shelter in the area. From that point forward, they have been able to expand and improve their facility by relocating to a building with 10,000 square feet that is sprawled across 10 whole acres of land!

They have provided a new leash on life for many different types of animals since their opening and provide the public with affordable, low-cost spay, neutering, and many other procedures, to help fur-babies in need. As a non-profit shelter, the Humane Society depends on the generosity of the community to keep them up and running, by accepting donations of all sorts. In addition, they also have a “Charity Care Pet Program,” that was created to help families that are in need of financial assistance. 

The Humane Society also provides the community with various events and fundraisers throughout the year, to raise money and promote adoptable pets. This shelter has gained the praise of many locals by off-furring a wonderful environment in which to bring their furry friends. By treating the public with substantial care, the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, will be able to continue this mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come.
