Animal Shelters Of Kansas City


Local shelters are seeing a record number of animals coming into their facilities each day.

On Wednesday's Central Standard, we'll explore the state of pet ownership in the metro area, and what can be done to curb the influx of pets into shelters.  Tori Fugate, Community Events Coordinator of KC Pet Project, and Cynthia Smith, President of Wayside Waifs join us to lend their animal expertise.

Matthew Long-Middleton has been a talk-show producer, community producer, Media Training Manager and now the Community Engagement Manager at KCUR. You can reach him at Matthew@kcur.org, or on Twitter @MLMIndustries.
