Every day we see pets in need of medical care. Some have minor injuries, but many are severe cases in need of more critical care and hospitalization. In this Spring issue, you will hear about Henry, one of the extreme medical cases we encounter far too often. In 2020, our veterinary team treated 976 seriously injured animals
that arrived, performed 407 emergency surgeries, and conducted 5,603 veterinary exams on animals in our
shelter thanks to your generous support.
We are dedicated to helping more pets and people ever before in Kansas City, MO 2021, through community vaccination clinics, and pop-up identification tag, and microchip events across the metro. Your support is needed as we advance community outreach efforts and expand resources and education across our local
community. Our Keep ‘Em Together, KC program also includes a pet helpline, emergency temporary boarding
for families in crisis, a pet medical assistance fund, and pet care assistance for pet families in need.
Helping our community’s pets stay safe and healthy is more important than ever and we can’t do it without your help. Thank you for your support, especially throughout 2020 and the Covid-19 crisis. With your help last year, we were able to share 4.94 tons of pet food with our community, provide $10,000 in financial assistance for veterinary services to low-income residents, provide care for 10,565 animals in our shelter, spay and neuter 5,528 animals, and achieve a 95.7% save rate! Stay connected in 2021 and follow us on social media, virtually attend our events, sign up to volunteer, foster a pet in need, or consider giving a gift to help us save more lives.
