Helping animals in our community since 1912
Founded in 1912, Humane Society of Greater Kansas City is the oldest existing humane society in metropolitan Kansas City. We were originally called The Humane Society of Wyandotte County and two sisters are credited with our founding, Sarah Jacobs and Henriette H. Jacobs. In 1970, we changed our name to The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City and continue to this day to serve the entire metropolitan area. In 1994 we became the first no-kill shelter in Kansas City and continue to provide low-cost spay/neuter services and preventive veterinary care. We employ three veterinarians and support staff for our clinic, which is located in our facility. We find homes for over 97% of the pets in our care.
The United Way of Wyandotte County is one of nearly 1,400 community-based United Way associations across the United States and is governed by an independent board of 36 local community leaders and volunteers. The money we raise stays in Wyandotte County to support programs operated by non-profit social service agencies based in our community. The United Way of Wyandotte County funds programs that help meet basic needs, nurture children and families, and promote health and quality of life. Community volunteers are today, as always, our greatest asset. Volunteer leadership drives the United Way of Wyandotte County's mission to increase the community's understanding of human needs and mobilize resources to address those needs.
