Chain of Hopes primary goal is to alleviate the suffering of abused and neglected animals within the urban core of Kansas City. We rescue, rehabilitate, re-home or transfer homeless or unwanted pets. We provide public education on the proper care and treatment of animals and give shelter animals much needed love and attention. Chain of Hope’s mission is to reduce pet overpopulation by spaying and neutering all pets and encouraging others to do the same. Our ultimate goal is to break the chain of ignorance, break the chain of suffering, and break the chain of unwanted litters.


Chain of Hope assists lower income pet owners with vet care and vet expenses. We’ve had everything from amputated legs and parvo to eyeballs hanging out. There are traumatic injuries and terrible illnesses out there and people with no or very little money. Sometimes, we pay for the medical treatment and return the animal to the home. Sometimes, we will only provide care for the animal if the owner signs it over to Chain of Hope so that we can help it medically and then find it a more responsible home, if needed. We spent over $40,000 on medical in 2014. This is only possible because of our wonderful supporters. We treated a lot of animals, spayed and neutered hundreds and provided humane euthanasia for many.
