How to Support Local Animal Shelters

Local animal shelters work to find forever homes for abused, neglected, or abandoned cats and dogs. If you would like to support their cause, here are three shelters near our Overland Park apartments that you can help from the comfort of home:

Great Plains SPCA

As one of the largest no-kill shelters in the Kansas City area, the Great Plains SPCA strives to strengthen the bond between pets and their human companions. It saves nearly 6,000 animals every year. The cats and dogs receive humane care, and the expert matchmakers help an adoptee find the perfect new addition for their family. Help the Great Plains SPCA by shopping through Amazon Smile. It will donate a percentage of your purchase to the shelter.

KC Pet Project

Caring for over 10,000 animals annually, KC Pet Project focuses on promoting pet reunions and pet education throughout the community. It’s the country’s third-largest open-admission no-kill shelter. The beginnings were humble, and today there are thirteen locations throughout the Kansas City area. To support the KC Pet Project’s mission, shop from its Amazon Wish List. Your order will ship directly to the shelter, and items include harnesses, kennels, and kibble.

Purrfect Pets

Established in 2013, Purrfect Pets rescues cats in need. A no-kill shelter, it provides the animals with loving care and medical treatment. Purrfect Pets saves hundreds of cats every year, and founder Elaine Doran strives to improve the lives of people and pets throughout the community. To help, consider giving the gift of a Kuranda ShelterBed. It provides a comfortable perch and is easily wiped clean, which is precisely what local animal shelters need.
