Meet Prescott!

Prescott is a handsome 8-month-old Pit Bull mix with a lot of energy and the eagerness to learn. He is at Great Plains SPCA’s no kill shelter in Independence waiting for a family who will keep him active and work on basic puppy training with him. Prescott is sometimes a little apprehensive around other dogs and plays a little rowdy because of his energetic personality. Even though Prescott is receiving all the love and attention that he needs at the shelter, he deserves a family to call his own.

Prescott and hundreds of other pets are currently waiting for their forever homes at the two area campuses in Merriam and Independence. Great Plains SPCA (GPSPCA) provides lifesaving services to 35,000 pets and their human companions each year. The no-kill shelter works to drive change in the Kansas City community through innovative programs that promote adoption, outreach, vet care and a better life for pets and the people who love them.

Many in the community think that GPSPCA is affiliated as a chapter of the national organization, ASPCA. However, Great Plains SPCA is a local 501(c)3 non-profit, relying on local donations to help local pets. This means that our organization does not receive government funding or grants. We rely solely on local donors to provide resources to thousands of Kansas City Metro area pets each year. Online fundraisers, signature events, mailings and in-kind donations help efficiently run the 12 lifesaving programs that make GPSPCA the leading animal welfare organization in our community. Pets like Prescott count on community members’ generosity to ensure that GPSPCA continues to help thousands of pets each year.
