In 2009 we partnered with The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, volunteers, no-kill rescues and shelters, and breed rescue groups. The Ray of Hope program significantly reduced euthanasia in our shelter, saving thousands of pets. Our partnership includes transfers of pets to no-kill groups, spaying and neutering of all of those pets, weekend satellite events, and distributing information on low-cost spaying and neutering to the KCK community.

For more information on The Ray of Hope and how you can help (besides adopting!), visit web site.

Chain of Hopes primary goal is to alleviate the suffering of abused and neglected animals within the urban core of Kansas City. We rescue, rehabilitate, re-home or transfer homeless or unwanted pets. We provide public education on the proper care and treatment of animals and give shelter animals much needed love and attention. Chain of Hope’s mission is to reduce pet overpopulation by spaying and neutering all pets and encouraging others to do the same. Our ultimate goal is to break the chain of ignorance, break the chain of suffering, and break the chain of unwanted litters.

Chain of Hope assists lower income pet owners with vet care and vet expenses. We’ve had everything from amputated legs and parvo to eyeballs hanging out. There are traumatic injuries and terrible illnesses out there and people with no or very little money. Sometimes, we pay for the medical treatment and return the animal to the home. Sometimes, we will only provide care for the animal if the owner signs it over to Chain of Hope so that we can help it medically and then find it a more responsible home, if needed. We spent over $40,000 on medical in 2014. This is only possible because of our wonderful supporters. We treated a lot of animals, spayed and neutered hundreds and provided humane euthanasia for many.Paws Crossed is a section 501(c)3 no kill foster-based rescue group based in the Kansas City, Missouri and Johnson County, Kansas metro areas. We are dedicated to rescuing pets left homeless, in high euthanasia shelters, and those in danger of abuse and neglect. We assist pets without regard to age, breed or ease of placement to the extent our finances allow, with the pets in greatest need taking priority. Animals in our care are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, and provided additional veterinary care as needed. Our animals are placed in foster homes where they wait for placement in a permanent home. Paws Crossed, Inc. strives to place pets in loving and committed permanent homes through a comprehensive adoption process which includes educating prospective adopters about costs and responsibilities associated with bringing a new pet into their home as well as finding a good match for both the pet and the families.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. Their mission is to save and improve the lives of dogs and cats throughout the Greater Kansas City community by providing education, adoptions, preventive veterinary care and spay/neuter services.
