About us

Give Locally. Help Locally.

Founded in 1912, HSGKC celebrates over 100 years of faithful service to the lost, abandoned, and broken pets of the Greater Kansas City area. Our mission is to save and improve the lives of dogs and cats throughout the Greater Kansas City community by providing affordable veterinary care and spay/neuter services, education and adoptions. In 1994 we became the first No-Kill Shelter in the KC metro area. Many of the pets in our shelter were originally at KCK Animal Services and were injured or sick and in need of life-saving veterinary care.


HSGKC receives no funding from any state, city, or federal government organizations or from any national animal welfare organizations. We provide much needed care and services for the animals in our community, and we depend entirely on the generous donations of animal-lovers like you!

Providing Affordable Vet Care

HSGKC provides affordable spay/neuter and veterinary care services for the public. Proper veterinary care and education is essential to keeping pets healthy and happy, and affordable care helps people from having to give up their beloved pets or euthanize them during difficult financial times. Affordable spay/neutering saves lives by reducing pet overpopulation. Although we do not screen clients based on their financial abilities, our desire is to help those with limited finances care for their pets. Thanks to our generous donors we are able to help pets get the important veterinary care they need.


By providing education and affordable services, we're able to save and improve the lives of thousands of pets in the Greater KC community and prevent countless pets from being relinquished to shelters.

Saving Lives at the City Shelter

Ray of Hope is the life-saving partnership between HSGKC and the KCK Animal Services city shelter. The dogs and cats at the KCKAS shelter are under the veterinary care of our HSGKC clinic staff. Pets receive medical examinations, vaccinations, spay/neuter services, and other needed medical care and procedures. To help find homes for the pets available for adoption at the KCKAS shelter, our volunteers conduct weekend satellite adoption events at the PetSmart in Olathe.


Funding and donations to the Ray of Hope program have allowed thousands of dogs and cats at the city shelter to be given a second chance.
