To save and improve the lives of dogs and cats throughout the Greater Kansas City community by providing preventative veterinary care and spay/neuter services, education and adoptions. 


The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City is a 501(c)3 is a nonprofit organization located in Kansas City, Kansas.  Established in 1912, The HSGKC has practiced over 100 years of faithful service to the lost, abandoned, and neglected pets in the greater Kansas City area. We are also a full-service veterinary care clinic, focusing on providing affordable veterinary care to our community.  We have provided life-saving care to over 100,000 animals since the opening of our clinic.


The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City is the only organization of its kind; providing adoption services, lost/found pet services, education, and an affordable public-facing veterinary clinic. 


In 1944 we became the first no-kill animal shelter in the KC area, taking in many pets who are sick or injured and in need of medical care and providing adoption services to our community. 


We are the ONLY no-kill animal shelter and affordable care clinic in Kansas City. 

While located on 10 acres, our plan is to expand our building footprint in order to provide the community with more services.  We intend to be able to double our capacity for care in both our shelter and our veterinary clinic; a service that is needed very much in our community. 

Give Locally. Help Locally.

In order for us to continue providing life-saving medical care to the 10,000+ animals we see each year, we need your support. 

By leaving a tax-deductible donation today, you will be helping us to provide much needed shelter and care to the pets within our community.
