Transparency

Transparency is important to us at Spay and Neuter Kansas City. What do we mean when we say transparency? Simply put, it means being open and honest.

Spaying and Neutering

Happy National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month! As an organization with the phrase “Spay and Neuter” in our name, we’re already pretty aware of it, but maybe you’re not.

The Holiday Conundrum

Winter brings on more than just cold weather. It brings with it the financial pressures of the holiday season, higher gas bills to warm your home, property taxes, and waving to you from just offstage is the hope of (or stress of) the approaching tax season.

Saved by Cats

I grew up with dogs. Sort of. I didn’t know what to do with a dog. My family didn’t know what to do, either. We never had dogs for very long. We were a high-strung, neat freak sort of family (except for dad), so we had a lot of rules: no dog hair on things,...

What We Talk About When We Talk About Animal Rescue

When we talk about animal rescue, what do we mean? Usually we talk about rescue organizations, those extremely passionate and hardworking people who spend every day (often literally seven days a week) out doing everything they can to help animals find their forever home. Because they’re usually nonprofit organizations, they have a person handling advertising,...

Dealing with Cat Scratching Behaviors

Cats, right? Tell me about it. I’ve lived with cats for the better part of a decade now, after growing up with dogs. One of the things it took me (far) too long to come to terms with was scratching. Not them scratching me, of course (though that did happen), but my furniture. I was...

Positive Outcomes

It’s only recently that I’ve started doing social media and public relations for this organization. Before that I was a part of the Families Better Together outreach team, and before that I worked retail. Retail is such a different beast in terms of how things are emphasized and presented to the public. You want to...
