About Us

The Pet Connection, Inc. is a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter located in the Kansas City metro area. It’s our intention to form a no-kill coalition by educating the public, providing pet owner services, and to find homes for unwanted and abandoned animals. The Pet Connection provided vet care for nearly 300 pets in 2012 and adoption assistance to over 500 pets, through referral and assisted adoptions for other groups. Additionally, we provided behavioral/training to 200 pets last year.

The core of our operation is centered around our adoption and obedience services. It is the center for all of our outreach and community education programs. Follow-up phone calls after adoptions, homeless pet intakes, networking, and educational programs are just a few of our ongoing services.

We are currently raising funds in hopes of expanding the following programs:

  • Events and benefits
  • Support for ongoing care of medical and behavioral special needs pets
  • Support to other rescues and individuals
  • Community education
  • Feral cat colonies

We are located in The Great Mall of the Great Plains just inside the Theater Entrance.
