About Us




Adopting A Friend

Great Plains SPCA has bi-state Pet Adoption Centers in Merriam, KS and Independence, MO with expert matchmakers ready to find you the perfect furry family member.  Let us help grow your family!

If you are interested in learning more about a specific pet, please email adoptions@greatplainsspca.org for pets at our Merriam Campus and indyadoptions@greatplainsspca.org for pets at our Independence Campus.


Basic Adoption Requirements:

  • Adopter must be 18 years of age or older.

  • For the safety and health of our animals, we do not ship pets.

  • Pet adoption fees range from $45 to $250. Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the thousands of animals needing our help. We do our best to keep our adoption prices reasonable while generating income to support our goal of caring for animals available for adoption until we can place them in a loving home. The adoption fee for each animal varies and is dependent on many factors including: age, size, behavior, medical condition, and public demand.

Who We Are

Great Plains SPCA is the Kansas City metro's most unique and comprehensive animal welfare agency, serving more than 35,000 needy pets every year. 

As an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, unaffiliated with ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States, our lifesaving services for animals can only be provided because of the public's generosity and commitment to our mission.  We do not receive government funding and we are not affiliated with national organizations.  Great Plains SPCA exists solely because of the caring Kansas City community and its gracious donors.
