OBEDIENCE

A Trained Dog is a Happy Dog

We highly recommend that you take your dog to obedience classes. Classes should be reward-based and fun for you and your dog. FoKCA believes in POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT training which uses rewards instead of shock collars.

Training iis an opportunity for you and your dog to bond. Not only will you and your dog learn a lot but it's also a great way to socialize your dog with people and other dogs. Puppies can start as early as four months of age.

 

********************

 

OUTREACH GROUPS IN THE KANSAS CITY AREA

Outreach Groups concentrate on providing relieft to pets who otherwise wouldn't get it - They focus on educating pet owners and giving adequate care to animals whose owners may be failing to do so. These organizations' volunteers will, for example, provide new dog houses, straw, new food bowls, cable (instead of chain) tie-outs, flea/tick prevention and so much more. These people are "in the trenches" in some of the area's most poverty-stricken areas and, I assure you, they are always in need of hands-on volunteers!

NOTES ON BOARDING, DAYCARE, PET SITTING & DOG WALKING

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH! All boarding and pet services are NOT created equal! Some are good and some are not. It's good to ask friends and neighbors (via NextDoor.com if online) which services they use and prefer. Tour the boarding facility before bring a pet there and to interview various pet caretakers prior to needing them that moment. Look up the business' reviews to see if there are any red flags. You wouldn't leave a child with just anyone so don't do it with your pet!

SURRENDERING YOUR PET

DO YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO GIVE UP YOUR PET?

Do you feel you need to surrender your pet? This decision should not be taken lightly. While volunteers and staff at shelters do what they can to find animals housed there new homes, not all are adopted or rescued. Since the shelter only accommodates so many animals, know that surrendering your pet could yield a very grave outcome for the animal. Before surrendering your dog or cat to the shelter, please consider the following.

WHY do you want to surrender your animal? Is it a behavioral problem? Is your animal being destructive? Many behavioral issues are not as major as they seem and can be eliminated with a little work and proper training.

If your animal is acting aggressively it could be because your pet is not spayed or neutered. There are many health and behavioral benefits to altering your pets (outlined under the SPAY/NEUTER tab of this web site) and showing less aggression is one of them! If you feel that spaying/neutering is too expensive, think again! Kansas City has some wonderful low cost spay/neuter options available, such as the vet clinic at KCMO Animal Shelter, Spay & Neuter KC, and the Greater Kansas City Humane Society.

Even if your animal HAS been “fixed,” your pet may still exhibit behavioral issues. Please realize that animals (especially dogs) look to their owners for direction. Just like children, they need training to learn right from wrong. Before making a decisiont, PLEASE consider training for your pet! This can be done with the help of a professional trainer, or on your own. There are many helpful books that outline basic training methods, and there is A LOT of information on the web. If you decide to enlist the help of a professional, it may be done one-on-one or in a group setting with other dogs and their owners. By talking with other dog owners, you will learn that many of the “issues” you are having are quite common and can easily be corrected if you are consistent and committed to methods of positive reinforcement and conditioning.

You might also try taking your pet to the vet! Sometimes behavioral issues are due to your pet not feeling well. Just like humans who get grumpy when they don’t feel well, illness could be the reason your pet is acting out or having accidents.

It is never fun after a long day of work to see your living room in a completely different state than how you left it. If your dog is more “active” than you would like when you are away, keep in mind that a bored dog is often a destructive dog. Here are a few tips:

Make sure your pet is getting enough exercise! We suggest walking, joggine and/or playing with your dog every morning, midday (if possible) and evening. 

Ensure your pet is mentally stimulated. It’s good to practice commands with your pet each day.  Just as a class in school takes mental energy from a child, so does the schooling you conduct for your pet. Practice SIT, STAY, COME, FETCH, LEAVE IT, DOWN, UP etc. with your dog for 10 minutes or so. This, alone, will wear them out to a certain degree.

Use common sense when it comes to your animal’s toys. If you allow your dog to play with rope toys with fringe on the end, be prepared to have a ripped up rug- since they look a lot alike to a dog. If you allow your animal raw hides, those are pretty similar to furniture made of leather. Stuffed animals and pillows are two in the same to a dog too! RUBBER TOYS are good bets since they resemble fewer items in the household.

If you are away from home for more than five hours during the day, a reputable dog walker or doggy daycare may be the answer. There are many doggy daycare establishments in the Metro, some which are set up for group play, (think day camp for dogs), and others who use group play, or one on one methods for pups who aren’t quite so fond of other canine friends.  These are fairly inexpensive- typically around $15 to $20 per day. **Doggie Day Care is NOT for every dog! Some dogs love the environment, but some may develop issues from doggie day care. Be sure to speak with the facility beforehand and be able to discuss any problems that your dog already displays.

If you feel you need to surrender your pet for a reason other than the animal’s behavior, such as financial hardships, moving, or a new baby, consider the following.

The sheltering system has seen an increase in owner-relinquished pets in this poor economy. If lack of money is your challenge, note that Northland Pet Pantry helps supply dog and cat food to those who are having financial problems. Great Plains SPCA, Spay & Neuter KC, Jade's Mission and Chain of Hope all have outreach programs for owners needing help with food and pet supplies. Great Plains SPCA, SNKC, The Greater Kansas City Humane Society, and the vet clinic at the KCMO Animal Shelter (KC PET PROJECT) also offer low cost vaccinations and vetting services. Please take advantage of this help if you need it. We know several homeless pet owners and, for them, where there’s a will, there’s a way to feed their pets!

Need to move? Your pet wants to come with you! There are many pet friendly rental communities, for all types of animals. It may take a little research and having pets can limit your choices, but it is worth it to keep your animal in your home where they belong. If you have an American Pit Bull Terrier or another “bully breed” dog, research Breed Specific Legislation laws. Many cities and counties in the United States have BSL. This is “dangerous dog ordinance” concentrates solely on what your dog looks like, not its behavior. If you love your pitty, do not move to a city with BSL!!! For more information on BSL, see http://mprgroup.net/misc/bsl.html

Are you getting rid of your pet because you are expecting? You can have a baby and keep your pet! You just need to educate yourself on how to handle the transition so it goes smoothly for all. There are great resources for expecting parents who are pet owners.  Check out www.dogsandstorks.com for info on preparing your home for babies and pets to exist happily together. Dogs & Storks also has representatives in Kansas and Missouri who can give you more personal, one-on-one, attention if needed.

If these scenarios do not apply to you, or you have tried everything in your power and still feel that you have no choice but to surrender your animal, please avoid taking the animal to a municipal shelter, which is often otherwise known as a “high-intake, high-kill” facility. Instead try to find your pet a new home on your own! After all, who knows your pet better than you do? Contact local no kill shelters and see if they will allow you the courtesy to post your animal on their petfinder listings. If someone expresses interest in your pet, make sure to screen him/her properly, so you know the person would be a loving, compassionate and responsible owner. Always charge a small re-homing fee for your pet also. Giving away animals for free is not a good idea, because many “free pets” are picked up by people who sell them to research labs, or use them in dog fighting rings. 

Contact no kill shelters. You may need to be put on a waiting list and your pet may have to pass a temperament evaluation to be admitted.  Give the shelter as much info as possible about your animal including vet records, likes and dislikes, food choices, any training, housebroken or not, favorite dogs, dog/cat/kid friendly, etc. The more information you can provide, the easier it is to find your animal an appropriate adopter.

If your animal is a pure-bred, contact local breed specific rescue groups (listed on this web site), to see if they have room in their program(s). If you have a mixed-breed, contact non-specific breed rescues for help.

We appreciate you doing everything you can to uphold the commitment you made to care for and love your pet as one of the family. We hope that you are able to keep your friend for both your sake and his/hers, but if not, please explore only the healthiest options so that your dog or cat can enjoy the longest and happiest life possible!

KC Pet Project sees uptick in surrendered animals due to evictions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With federal unemployment benefits over and eviction moratoriums, lifted some people are facing eviction and foreclosure notices. And in some cases, those with pets are left with no option but to surrender them at animal shelters.

Virgil is the latest guest staying at Matt Kizaric's home.

"I've enjoyed it so much more than I thought I would," Kizaric said.

Kizaric began fostering cats with special needs from the KC Pet Project (KCPP) right before the onset of the pandemic.

"I'd probably go a little bit crazy if I didn't have, you know, another, another living thing in here to kind of like keep me some company," Kizaric said.

There's no doubt these domestic creatures can soothe the soul in these times we're living in.

"Because that pet provides so much love and joy to that family and to have them, to have to part with that animal during such a stressful time would be just devastating," Tori Fugate, KC Pet Project chief communications officer, said.

But as evictions are on the rise so the animals arriving at shelters. So far this year, more than 1, pets have been brought into the KC Pet Project – of them surrendered because of housing reasons.

"If people were to give up breed restrictions and weight restrictions and a lot of housing, that would open up so much more housing opportunities for people in Kansas City," Fugate said, "and also the pet deposits, some of them are outrageous, asking, you know, for $ per animal."

KCPP staff are preparing for an influx they haven't seen before.

"We're looking into ways that we can help people and their pet stay together," Fugate said, "and we're actively exploring opportunities for short-term fostering."

And it doesn't take much know-how to welcome a dog or cat into a new home.

"I had no experience with cats doing it, but they're so good down at the shelter that they've really – they really taught me how to do all that kind of stuff," Kizaric said.

For more information on how to foster an animal from the KC Pet Project, visit the group's website.

If you have found a dog, please first check for a collar or identification tag.

You can also post a photo of the missing pet on NextDoor, your neighborhood social media group, and your social media accounts. Most stray pets tend to stick close to home!
