Spaying and Neutering is Life-Saving!

We are in a severe animal overpopulation crisis in Kansas City, MO and all across the United States. Our shelters here in KC are overflowing. This only leads to increased euthanasia due to not having enough space for all of them. There are always more coming in. We at Chain of Hope have a primary mission of reducing the pet overpopulation in our city.

The shelters are particularly trying to deal with multitudes of pit bulls. Chain of Hope believes that pit bulls are the most neglected dogs in the urban core in which we serve. Many are gotten to simply be guard dogs, yet they have just as much love to give as the Cocker Spaniel next door. They are often chained in the backyard and may or may not be fed and watered on a daily basis. They may or may not have shelter and are out in inclement weather. We don’t know how many of them survive at all.

When Chain of Hope visits a house, we meet with the owners. Sometimes they are receptive and sometimes they are not. When they are, we are happy to find out what their needs are for their animal and work together to improve that animal’s life. Our number one question when people ask for assistance is, “are your animals spayed and neutered?” If they are not fixed yet and the owner is receptive to having them fixed, we help them financially to get this done. Many people just don’t have the money.  That’s where we come in. Chain of Hope has always spayed and neutered pit bulls and pit bull mixes for free. We remove the financial barrier that low-income pet owners are often facing.

We are highly motivated to getting animals from the urban core of KCMO spayed and neutered. We have to lower the euthanasia rate in this city, instead of watching it increase. We have taken numerous pregnant moms, moms and litters and sometimes litters with no moms over to our city shelter and it breaks our hearts. There’s only so many foster and adoptive homes out there. We cannot adopt our way out of this crisis. We must continue to work hard on the prevention side, which means getting more animals spayed and neutered. Your continued support makes this happen in a critical area of our city! Many thanks to each of you!
