Gracias a Nuestra “Gran Liga” de Voluntarios

Aquí en Spay and Neuter Kansas City, los días pueden ser muy difíciles. El trabajo que hacemos — entre 50 y 70 cirugías cada dia, una clínica lleno de perros y gatos esperando pacientemente las vacunas y miembros de nuestro equipo en la comunidad proveyendo recursos para las mascotas — sería imposible sin la ayuda...

To Our ‘Major League’ of Volunteers: Thank You

Here at Spay and Neuter Kansas City, our days can sometimes become pretty overwhelming. The work we do — managing 50 to 70 surgeries a day, having a room full of pets in our clinic patiently waiting to get vaccinated and team members out in the field providing resources to the community and their pets...

Currently Celebrating: Mutts

We have different names for them. Mutts. Mixed-breed. Heinz 57. But no matter what you call them, they’re fantastic, and we’re celebrating them today. Why should you adopt a mutt? 1.

My girlfriend and I get a text from Rachel that says she’s almost here. She has no transportation, so she takes the bus. When she arrives, she’s all smiles, gives us a quick rundown of how things are going, and then we let her be. Because we know what she’s here for. Rachel is currently...

Dispatches from the Home of A Mildly Lovable Cat

CC is the cat who lives with the lady who has lived alone for what must be 25 years now.  That lady is actually my mom. And she is not a cat person. In fact, she’s reluctant to have CC in her life right now even though the two have lived together for more than...

One of the most common things we get requests for is pet food, and it’s easy to see why. First, it’s food, a basic necessity. But second, it’s one of those resources that runs out, and quick, especially if you’ve got a big dog. But third is this simple fact: a lot of owners will...

There for Each Other

We believe in #ThePowerOfPets. And we try to tell stories that reveal how incredible the human-animal bond is. But from time to time, we ask people to tell us, in their own words, what their pets mean to them and what kind of impact those pets have had on their lives.  This is Lisa’s story...

The Problem with Parasites

Who hasn’t ever scratched at a mosquito bite and wondered, “I hate them; why do they exist?”  Or fleas, ticks, intestinal worms … all parasites for that matter. But as cooler weather approaches, some of us are likely to forget the aggravation caused by this year’s bumper crop of pests.  But …  As pet lovers,...

Harnessing Hope

Cynthia grew up with pets, has always had pets. From her childhood, when her father had cats, up through adulthood, she’s always had someone there. Most recently it was a little chihuahua named Tiny, who was her dog when we first met her five years ago. She has a cane that she can use when...
