Kansas City Missouri Animal Shelter - Petfinder


We specialize in helping small dogs in the Greater Kansas City area including both Missouri and Kansas. Many of our dogs are owner turn-ins; those from puppymill; others are adopted out of local shelters if their time is up. Our dogs are spayed or neutered (or adopted out under a pre-paid spay/neuter contract if under 4 months of age), heartworm checked negative, and given rabies, kennel cough and parvo/distemper inoculations. Many of our dogs are wormed, and some receive extensive dental care. We provide pre- and post-adoption educationThe Pet Connection was founded in 1999 in Mission, Kansas to offer shelter for homeless pets, adoptions and training. We were one of the first no-kill advocacy groups in the Kansas City Metro area and the first cage-less facility in Johnson County to offer education about available spay and neuter programs. In 2006, The Pet Connection relocated to a facility in Mission that enabled all dogs and cats to have their own rooms while awaiting adoptive homes or being rehabilitated due to behaviors that hindered adoption prospects.
