Challenge

Thousands of animals are euthanized in areas shelters every year as a result of unwanted litters and pets who are abandoned by owners who can't provide for them. In an environment where dogs are chained in back yards for the purpose of "guarding" and spay and neutering is not understood, overpopulation and disease runs rampant. Outreach benefits the whole community by reducing overpopulation and preventing or ending needless suffering of animals through education and support to their owners.

Solution

The mission of Chain Of Hope is to end suffering and overpopulation of animals in the urban core of Kansas City, Missouri through outreach, educating pet owners on responsible pet ownership, supporting owners who have limited ability to pay for their pet's basic needs of food, shelter and medical care, reduced cost or free spay and neutering, and by rehabilitating, fostering, and securing adoptive homes for rescued animals.
COH outreach ends suffering and overpopulation of animals through support and education to pet owners, rescue of abused and neglected animals, and medical care, foster and adoption of those animals to loving permanent homes. Outreach workers search daily for animals in the city's most high risk neighborhoods, providing food, water, shelter, assistance with medical care and spay and neutering. In one year, COH provides support to over 1600 households, assisting nearly 3000 animals.

Long-Term Impact

Over 1600 households will receive support to meet basic needs of their pets and over 3000 animals will be relieved of suffering, abuse, and neglect. Pet overpopulation will be reduced through the prevention of hundreds of unwanted litters. And the the long term impact for the community is a change in attitude and understanding about the humane care and treatment of animals.
