Our clinic helps people on a limited budget care for the veterinary needs of their pets, and saves lives by reducing pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering. Through individual client meetings, our vet staff also works with pet owners to educate them about proper and responsible pet care.

Ray of Hope: Saving lives

In January 2009, HSGKC embarked upon a venture to partner with Kansas City, KS Animal Control to save the city shelter's pets before their time was up. Since its inception, the Ray of Hope program has saved the lives of thousands of animals.

 

Adoptions: Your best friend is waiting for you!

In 1994 we became the first no-kill shelter in Kansas City. We find homes for 97% of the pets in our care. Pets are examined by one of our staff veterinarians upon arrival and treated for any medical problems they may have while at our shelter.

Humane Education

In our Humane Education programs, we teach the importance of compassion toward animals, responsible pet care including spaying and neutering, and how to be safe around pets. Presenters accompanied by a pet may be scheduled to come to your school, church or civic/community center.
