Great Plains SPCA was formed through the merger of two lifesaving organizations in June 2011 – Animal Haven and No More Homeless Pets KC. At Great Plains SPCA, they believe that no matter what their size, shape or story, all dogs and cats deserve the chance to live long, happy and healthy lives. That’s why their team of experts works hard every day to be a lifeline to a better future for pets by providing comprehensive, affordable medical care, adoption services and innovative community programs.
The Heart of America Humane Society is a 100% volunteer organization working to find good homes for animals that are received at two shelters in the Kansas City area.

As one of the first and oldest no-kill shelters, The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City celebrates 100 years of faithful service to the lost, abandoned, and broken pets of the Greater Kansas City area.

The former Kansas City municipal animal shelter is now under new management, and is ALSO now a no-kill shelter! With three locations in Kansas City (the Missouri Animal Shelter on Raytown Rd., in the Zona Rosa shopping center, and inside Petco in Overland Park), they’re a rapidly-growing shelter and adoption organization with lots of great new friends for you and your family!
LL Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) Kansas Nonprofit Corporation, licensed with Kansas as an Animal Shelter, dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and finding new homes for unwanted dogs. They specialize in helping small dogs in the Greater Kansas City area including both Missouri and Kansas. Many of their dogs are owner turn-ins and those from puppymills. Others are adopted out of local shelters if their time there is up. The dogs are spayed or neutered (or adopted out under a pre-paid spay/neuter contract if under 4 months of age), heartworm checked negative, and given rabies, kennel cough and parvo/distemper inoculations. Many of their dogs are wormed, and some receive extensive dental care.
MABBR volunteers rescue the dogs in the program directly from death row in Midwest shelters. All of the dogs are temperament tested before they are accepted into the program and are continually socialized until they find a new home. Most MABBR dogs are in foster homes where they are socialized with other dogs, children and adults.

They focus on finding the right fit foe each family, and strive to make the adoption process as personal and positive as possible!

The Animal Rescue Alliance (T.A.R.A) is a non-profit 501C3, all volunteer group dedicated to helping homeless pets in the Greater Kansas City area. The organization is the result of an alliance between several rescuers in the Kansas City region who share the same goal of ending animal suffering and homelessness. Although foster home based, they also lease a building at a local boarding facility. Although this little “shelter” is allowing T.A.R.A. to save many more lives, it is an added expense – which is why they rely heavily on generous donations from caring people in the community.
