TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY QUESTION 3 SUPPORTERS FEAR RETURN TO 'CATCH AND KILL' POLICY WITHOUT NEW ANIMAL SHELTER!!!



The question of capacity, funding and cruelty will soon confront Kansas City voters deciding the fate of general obligation (GO) bonds on April 4th. Moreover, an impassioned cry for help has emerged from advocates of Question 3 as they witness public sentiment moving against increasing property taxes despite the city's desperate need for the new animal shelter the vote promises.

To wit . . .

LOCAL ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS FEAR THAT WITHOUT FUNDING FOR A NEW ANIMAL SHELTER QUESTION 3 PROVIDES, KANSAS CITY WILL RETURN TO "CATCH AND KILL' POLICIES THAT EUTHANIZED HUNDREDS OF ANIMALS WITHOUT PET ADOPTION EFFORTS!!!

Here's the word from an insider and the latest campaign blast . . .

"The situation at the animal shelter is dire. It's not even designed to be a shelter. The Chiefs used to store their equipment at the Raytown Road facility not so long ago; the City needs something news because KCMO has simply outgrown the current location . . . Without it, there's just no way we can keep up with the growing needs. We try to place every animal but there's only so much we can do . . . It kills me to say this but, yes, euthanizing more animals is an options that's under consideration in terms of Animal Control."

It may be cruel, it may not be fair but here's the new argument for supporters of this GO Bond effort . . .

VOTE YES FOR KANSAS CITY QUESTION 3 OR DOGGIES WILL DIE!!!



An exaggeration or far too much hyperbole? Probably, but this is the argument local doggie advocates are now forced to make as circumstances grow as desperate as one of those old school Sarah Mclachlan late night SPCA commercials.

Remember that KCMO was killing about 400 animals a month as recently as 2008.

Meanwhile, the many private shelters can hold on to their "no kill" status because they severely limit intake. KCMO facilities won't have that luxury as the weather grows warmer and calls for animal control increase.

The reason for the doggie death threat???

Support for GO BONDS is fading throughout Kansas City.

Question 3 is the ONLY effort that has grassroots support and even those advocates are now confronting push back as the urban core and Northland numbers now trend against increased property taxes across the board.

To wit . . .



Like it or not, Question 3 is now a struggle for the life and death of local animals as supporters are prepared to pull on the heartstrings of voters and portray their opponents as savage brutes if they dare question efforts to sustain the Kansas City no-kill animal shelter policy.

bottom line - we need the new shelter. this is one more thing the city should have done a long time ago.

the raytown rd. center is a joke. it has been ten years since it needed a replacement.

Be careful what you ask for. look at the problems that Independence had with it's new shelter. KCMo needs to make sure the facility is well-planned and has all of the resources it needs or we won't be much better off then we are now.

sad that Kc politics always comes to life or death. We really needed to talk about this vote more and compromise first WITHOUT the Sarah Mclachlan soundtrack.

Vote NO on 1-2-3 NO GO. Burns & McDonnell, Cordish, J.E. Dunn, Cerner, H&R Block and the rest of the 1% in KC need to pay. No until then.

Maybe it would be best to combine all the issues on the April KCMO ballot and decide to pay the stray animals $15/hour to fix the streets and sewers.
You're welcome!

Innocent pets should not suffer. The majority of them exist because irresponsible owners didn't have their own pets fixed to avoid more litters. KC Pet Project is an awesome organization and does so much good in the community. Pets and children are pretty much the only examples of innocence left in the world today. Please support a new shelter.

Bottom line, the doggie heartstring scam has worked on you.

Probably someone in SLIE James social media department trying to frighten people into voting for this $800 million con job.

Corrupt people have zero ethics.

Wow and six years ago everyone was yelling about how wonderful all the improvements were to the shelter!

The city should privatize the shelter along the lines of the zoo. They could continue to fund it at current levels but let a private non profit run it.

We literally spend TRILLIONS on low life blacks who hate the tax payers that support their lazy asses.

A Dog Shelter for man's best friend would be a far more prudent investment in saving the lives of dogs, who love us.

Seriously, think about it, don't say it out loud, you might be renditioned to the basement of Freedom Inc., but think about it. Dogs are light years more valuable than black people. They contribute, they are cheap in comparison and will never, NEVER rape your Grandmother.

It's not even close.

Build the shelter.

Great Plains SPCA and Wayside Waifs both operate no kill shelters WITH NO TAXPAYER DOLLARS! They are fully funded by contributions and donations. No tax dollars in either of these facilities. Wayside Waifs handles 10,000 pets each year in their NO KILL shelter while Great Plains SPCA handles over 30,000 pets annually in their NO KILL shelter. They get no local, state or federal tax dollars. Here's the kicker, Great Plains SPCA has a new shelter in Independence, MO with existing capacity. It is also on a large piece of property so it is easily expandable. Why don't we merge with them??

God bless those organizations.

Dogs are god's greatest gift to mankind.

9:46 is right though, we spend money like drunk sailors on blacks that hate the people who support them.

I would much rather save a dog's life, any day of the week than spend a penny on saving a black.

If people and parents obsessed as much about our children as they do dogs and cats, we all may notice a huge difference in how our children behave and act today.

Really Super Dave?

What you really mean, is if Black parents cared as much as white people do about dogs, then the world would be a better place.

Vote No! If they really need a shelter they can use one of the inner city community centers.

10:31, We don't see race stated by 10:21. You forgot about the puss part--he said dogs AND cats.

10:35, True, for KCPP. Wayside Waifs and Lawrence are better for pures and muttlys that don't look "bully".

Some of these things you devils could never say in public.

As for the dog shelter.

I'm voting no and I'm sending the dogs to brookside.

They're yours anyway, you deal with them. Filthy animals.

You realize that S'lie is just putting this out there to get you dog and cat lovers to vote for this so that when the city picks up your dog up from your yard it will have a nice place to stay until you get the $100's to bail fido out of jail. Yes the dog pound is a dog jail. Vote NO!

^^^ +1. I love dogs just as much as anyone else, but the taxes are too damn high as it is. Can't justify more property taxes even for a shelter.

The dogs are going to have to suffer or the humans will be forced out of their homes.

“Great Plains SPCA and Wayside Waifs both operate no kill shelters WITH NO TAXPAYER DOLLARS! They are fully funded by contributions and donations. No tax dollars in either of these facilities.”

- This is true. The difference is that the KCMO animal shelter is OPEN INTAKE meaning an average of 27 animals show up on their front door if they want them or not. They choose not to euth them and instead rehab and place YOUR local homeless pets for adoption. They have animals in trailers, offices and retail stores while they are waiting for their forever homes. Go visit the shelter and see for yourselves.
WW and GP can both lock their doors at anytime (and actually are closed to the public many days) and fully control their animal intake numbers, therefore obtaining no-kill status is elementary easy. The KCMO animal shelter deserves tax dollars because they are dealing with the pet homelessness as a KCMO vendor. Question 3 is pennies a month, you've spent your money in worse ways already today.
