ASPCA MegaMatchaThon Coming to Kansas City

Mega Match-a-thon is the second annual collaboration among three Greater Kansas City Area animal shelters working together to find forever homes for 700 homeless pets, all in a single weekend. Great Plains SPCA, KC Pet Project and Wayside Waifs each received funding from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) as part of the organization's national Mega match-a-thon effort taking place in October.

Mega Match-a-thon - Adoptable pets will be available for $25. As part of the adoption each pet will receive spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, collar and permanent microchip identification. Prospective adoptive family members will be required to go through an application process. In accordance with leash laws, all pets must leave on a leash or in a carrier. Fees for leashes and carriers (if needed) are not included in the $25.
