Spay & Neuter Kansas City’s Outreach Program Expands to Reach More Animals.
Wayside Waifs has partnered with Spay & Neuter Kansas City to support and expand their pet outreach program which will create the largest targeted pet outreach program of its kind in the region. WE C.A.R.E. (Community Awareness Resources and Education) is a Pet Outreach joint partnership between the three organizations and is focused to create positive outcomes for animals at risk.
Supporting and encouraging long term care for these pets in our community preserves the investment we as an animal welfare community spend annually on subsidized surgeries, animal care and housing for shelter pets, and veterinary care for rescued pets. Education and pet retention is extremely important to help decrease future incurring costs. This program is key to LONG-TERM impacts to build a better community that will ultimately improve the quality of lives for pet.
If you know of a pet and its owner who are in need of our services, please contact us. Please provide our Outreach Team as much information about the situation; address, description of pet, concerns etc.

Spay & Neuter Kansas City is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization formed in 2002. Spay & Neuter Kansas City has long been at the forefront of targeted spay/neuter efforts in the Kansas City area. SNKC is the only targeted spay and neuter program in Kansas City using a geographic information system to zero in on several neighborhoods with a disproportionally higher number of animal control calls and we’re providing low or no cost spay neuter procedures to these pet owners.
Through our spay and neuter, wellness clinic and outreach programs we will: Reduce the number of unwanted and stray animals entering our shelters and help other homeless pets improve their chance at a new and loving home.

Wayside Waifs, Inc. is an independent, 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit humane society and animal welfare organization established in 1944. Wayside Waifs is a charitable animal shelter whose purpose is to place adoptable companion animals in responsible homes. To accomplish this, we employ 3 key strategies:
Spay & Neuter Kansas City assists thousands of animals each year through our Pet Outreach Program. Occasionally we come across an abandoned or neglected pet. It is our goal to provide these pets a second chance at life, however we may need a few weeks or even a month to find a rescue group to take the pet.
Foster parents provide temporary care for these animals. Some animals need as little as two weeks of care, while others may need care for up to three months.
By offering your time, energy and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as help prevent overcrowding in our shelter. SNKC is always looking for more foster homes, especially throughout the busy spring and summer seasons.

Because a report of animal cruelty may result in a criminal investigation, please start by contacting your local police department or animal control division to make a complaint. Keep in mind that although a complaint can be made anonymously, a successful prosecution of a cruelty case often depends on an identifiable witness that may be called upon to testify. Without tips from concerned citizens in our community, many animals would remain in abusive circumstances unable to defend themselves.
Animal cruelty is wrong and against the law in every state. Animal abuse can also be part of a pattern of other violent acts within families and society. Abuse of any kind should be reported to the appropriate authorities immediately.
In 1992, Missouri led the nation by becoming one of only a handful of states with a dog regulatory program. In a continued effort, in 2009, Missouri once again took the lead in cracking down on unlicensed breeders with the launch of Operation Bark Alert.
Since the launch of Operation Bark Alert, more than 4,300 dogs have been rescued in across Missouri in 2009, Missouri saw a decrease of 164 commercial breeders thanks to Operation Bark Alert. In 2010, the trend continued with more than 200 commercial breeders no longer in business in Missouri.
Operation Bark Alert has an online reporting system making it easier for you to help us locate unlicensed breeders in Missouri. With every tip from the public, animal care inspectors visit the location in question to validate the report of animal welfare.
Help the Missouri Department of Agriculture crackdown on unlicensed breeders. If you know of an unlicensed breeder in Missouri putting the health and welfare of animals at risk, report them!
