About

Families Better Together is the pet outreach arm of Spay and Neuter Kansas City. We believe in nonjudgmental assistance for low-income pet owners. The underlying philosophy is that money should be no obstacle to experiencing the human-animal bond. Everything we do is with the goal of helping pet owners keep their pets happy and healthy and in the homes where they belong. One of the ways we do that is through our Pet Food Pantry, and we want YOU to be in charge of it. We have a core of dedicated volunteers ready to hand out food. The coordinator assigns tasks to volunteers, assists in account look-up and data entry, and is generally the face of Families Better Together while pantry is going on. You'll meet pet owners from around the city. You'll hear their stories and get to know them, and YOU'LL be the person responsible for their pets being fed. It's a great feeling, and you'll be working with your crew of volunteers to do right by these pets. Our Pet Food Pantry occurs three times each month: twice at our Kansas City, MO. location and once at our Kansas City, KS. location. Pantry dates either fall on Mondays or Saturdays and take place from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm. Pantry Coordinators will be responsible for setup and cleanup for Pet Food Pantry. Interested volunteers will have to complete a volunteer application and depending on acceptance, attend an agency orientation and complete required training for the program. Bilingual proficiency is encouraged but no required.
