Did you know? KAAS must rely on a reserve fund to meet our expenses and cover the cost of operation each month.  As that resource continues to be depleted, it has become clear this cannot be our long-term solution.

Become our partner in protecting and caring for the lost, abandoned, and abused pets of Kearney and all of Buffalo County by participating our new S.O.S. Project.  If we all give a little, we can accomplish a lot and Sustain Our Shelter! 

As an S.O.S. Project Member, you will receive a postcard each month to show you exactly where and how your monthly donations are impacting the homeless pets in our area. You can be assured that your generous donation will greatly impact these amazing animals.
