It does it, Johnson said, with countless volunteers and staffers aggressively working full time to find foster homes, partner with rescue groups and other shelters, and track down owners of lost animals. They also have increased adoptions by thousands of animals, using satellite centers at Zona Rosa in Kansas City, North, and at a Petco store on West 95th Street in Overland Park.
“We absolutely understand the love and dedication that Kansas City and Kansas Citians have to their pets,” Mayor Sly James said, acknowledging the shortcomings with the existing shelter at 4400 Raytown Road. “We want to create a first-class space where pets can grow and thrive.”

KC Animal Shelter: 4400 Raytown Rd
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.

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.

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.To find more adoptable pets: is an excellent resource to help you find a pet.
