We have dealt with the KCMO animal control several times.They are the worst people to deal with,uncaring and rude. I would rather go out on the street and rescue a dog out there than deal with them. Paul W. Jones

I recently adopted a husky from the KCMO shelter and their restrictive hours is still one of my big complaints.
The second one is the road construction on Raytown Road, that made for a confusing ride at best.
But as a third suggestion, since the shelter is close to Arrowhead Stadium and Kauffman Stadium, how about opening prior to home games to attract some new forever homes. Personally I find it disturbing that so many animals are euthenized at this shelter, and yet no one is accepting responsibility. When are people going to realize that not everything is for the betterment of our canine friends, for it is they, not us who will make the ultimate sacrifice. If people would stop buying from the advertisers in the paper for one, and keep better care of the intact animals they do have Kansas City would be a better place.
Too often people think that just because they have a purebred dog, they should breed it. A purebred dog should only be bred under these circumstances:
1. You are a breeder and you know what genetic diseases to test for hips, eyes, etc.
2. Perform these genetic disease tests for your dogs, and should the results show that the dog is not sound in any way, have it spayed or neutered immediately.
3. You are a member of one of the AKC, UKC or other recognized clubs and attend meetings or help them out. Being member of a group will add somewhat to your credentials, but above all, act in an ethical manner.
4. You have consulted with other club members and have thoroughly studied the pedigrees of both Dam and Sire.
5. Have a plan for the future of the puppies. Should things not work out with the new owners, have in that contract the dog comes back to breeder, no matter what.
I realize that there are areas too numerous to cover, but these are some of the things that I have dealt with over the years when it came to buying dogs.
Thank you for the chance to express my views.
