Since 2002, Pet Resource Center of Kansas City (formerly known as Spay and Neuter Kansas City) has been working with underserved communities to keep pets and people where they belong … together.

The organization serves over 25,000 pets each year with low-cost spay/neuter, affordable vaccines, as well as resources such as toys, parasite treatments, litter, tie outs, bowls, dog houses, pet food (over 60 tons just this year alone) and education. And their outreach team—formed in 2005 and the first of its kind in the region—hits the streets of Kansas City multiple days a week to operate a mobile vaccination clinic and resource distributions to help homebound clients and those without transportation. The outreach team can also be found going door to door providing education, supplies and support to pet owners in vet deserts throughout the city.

In recent years, PRCKC has also operated an emergency medical fund that is used to provide additional medical care for families who couldn’t get care for their pets otherwise. As part of that program, the organization has developed affordable, at-home parvo and heartworm treatment programs that have saved dozens of lives in 2020 alone.

By supporting PRCKC, you can help them continue to reduce the number of homeless animals in the Kansas City metro, which keeps pets off the streets, out of shelters and in their homes with the people who love them. And right now, until the end of the year, all donations are doubled so you can help PRCKC have twice the life-saving impact. Learn more at
