Now I'd like to introduce to you the largest no-kill shelter on the Kansas side: Great Plains SPCA.
Founded in 2011 from the merger of two smaller no-kill shelters, Great Plains SPCA serves more than 30,000 needy pets annually, and together with Wayside Waifs, has advanced Kansas City significantly toward an official No-Kill status for the city.
Recently Great Plains took over the management of a city shelter on the Missouri side as well, so now they have paws firmly planted on both sides of the state line!
We have many friends and former Wayside staffers who run Great Plains, and are so very proud of what both great shelters are doing.
New Weekly Series:
Today, we begin our weekly series, "Sunday Shelter Sweethearts" featuring an adorably adoptable cat from Great Plains.
(on Wednesday, you'll find us posting 'Wednesday's Waif,' another feline charmer awaiting a forever family at Wayside.)
So, without further ado, please meet our very first Shelter Sweetheart:
"Who couldn't love a cute little brown tabby like me? I get lots of compliments on my pretty markings and my sweet kitty smile, and I love the attention! (Just check out my video below to see how adorable I am :-)
But what I'd love more is to find my forever family. Just give me a little extra time and patience to get used to everything when we go home.
My ideal home would be a little on the quieter side as an only cat, but cat-respecting human kids would be no big deal!
I would be such a wonderful kitty and best friend for you. Even better if you've got a sunny spot by a window for me!
Please come visit me today. I'm at the Merriam Campus, and I want to go home!
