Practicing holistic health is easier in a community that is obviously compassionate about animals. In the Greater Kansas City Area, highly trained and educated animal professionals and veterinarians are easily accessed. Many laws assist in giving animals the right to life. Holistic clinics, mobile veterinarians, financing options and stores are located throughout the metro, providing holistic care for our furry friends. Holistic care includes pet acupuncture, massage, grooming, chiropractic adjustments and supplements.
In January 2013, Wellington Kansas passed a law allowing home owners a cap of four cats per household. This was due to the frightening statistics that nearly 87% were being put down after the inability to provide adequate care. Authorities believed they needed to implement regulations to improve the fate of these felines. In Kansas City, several groups have been developed to maintain a no-kill community for animals. This prohibits putting homeless animals down immediately and takes an assertive stand to prevent animals from being killed when homeless, sick, abandoned or stray. They offer weekend satellite events to assist in finding animals homes.
Mission Med Vet was rated a top animal hospital in the United States. The veterinarians are honest and frank about care. They provide options that help the consumer understand the risks for continuing care, when the animal's condition may be chronic, or maintaining health may not be obtainable. This provides tremendous comfort when faced with life decisions for your pet. Animal Control partnered with the Humane Society to provide lost cost spaying, neutering, and vaccinations. Many residents report being able to afford care for additional strays and outdoor animals due to these programs. When arriving at the Humane Society in Kansas City, Kansas, the staff is warm, friendly and able to provide immediate assistance when care is necessary. Rates are negotiated and the professionals are aggressive about helping when a crisis arises. The Humane Society is also partnered with the Ray of Hope Program to assist in this cause. Wyandotte County is the first and only no-kill county in the region. For more information on laws protecting or concerning animals in your neighborhood go to: www.animallaw.info
Pet Smart and local pet stores offer adoptions and consultations to help assist in your decisions. They are eager to help the pet owner understand how to assist the animal in survival of a Kansas City winter, how to provide adequate shelter, supplement for immune support and offer comfort when faced with life threatening situations. One does not have to look far for support in the Kansas City community. Discount stores offer affordable food while some clinics and hospitals offer the Care Card to help the owner afford services. Many times there is no interest charged for ninety days and the pet survives again. Special thanks to all working hard to educate the community and pet owners about resources and care options. This includes the media, for marketing animals in need of homes. Thank you for decreasing suffering and unnecessary loss.
