No More Homeless Pets KC

Rating: 5 stars   1 review

Issues: Animals

Location: 5428 Antioch Drive Merriam KS 66202 USA

Mission: To build a cooperative effort to transform the Greater Kansas City area into a No Kill community.
Programs: NMHPKC operates a 12,000 square foot, state of the art, high quality, high volume, low-cost spay/neuter veterinary clinic with a target population of low income pet owners and feral cat caretakers. With a capacity to perform 16,000 spay/neuters per year, we employee 1 full-time and 2 part-time veterinarians and a staff of 10 full and part-time personnel. Our services are specifically targeted to low income pet owners who are unaware of or cannot afford this service. By breaking the cycle of breeding, fewer unwanted animals will be born resulting in fewer homeless pets ending up in area shelters. Targeted spay/neuter is the key to reducing the number of unwanted pets.

NMHPKC has completed over 10,000 spay/neuter surgeries at it's clinic in Merriam, KS. In 2008, Kansas City area shelters reported a decrease in euthanasias to 13,000 from over 25,000 size years earlier. They provide high volume, high quality, low cost spay/neuter services to the Kansas City community. This is the key to reducing the number of animals killed nationwide. This is a professionally managed organization that is rapidly expanding it's outreach. In addition to s/n services, it provides animal adoption, outreach to animals in substandard living conditions, and a feral cat program. They are dedicated to the No-Kill movement outlined by Nathan Winograd. I've seen firsthand how this effectively this group functions and I would highly recommend supporting this organization.
