Making Room For Kansas City Big Dogs

Another local quiet crisis deserves attention for this weekend . . .

Great Plains SPCA, KCK Animal Services, Melissa’s Second Chances,and Humane Society of Greater Kansas Cityreport that they are having to convert staff offices, training rooms, medical exam rooms, and conference rooms to spaces to hold large dogs because their kennels are overflowing.
