KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Animal shelters in the metro are joining forces to make the Kansas City area safer for animals and humans.
The Professionals for a Humane and Safe Kansas City is the new group that will work with local governments to change city policies and laws regarding animals.
The group plans to tackle several issues including policies from law enforcement and community education on dealing with animals.
"We want innovative programs, progressive approaches to animal welfare, animal control laws, ordinances and educating everyone in our community from the top down," one group member said.
The group is made up of members from the Humane Society, the KC Pet Project, Spay and Neuter Kansas City, Wayside Waifs and the Great Plains SPCA.
