Pledge to Save More Animals Hurts KC Humane Society's Finances

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City is saving more severely sick or abused animals since it signed a contract to become the official veterinarian of Kansas City, Kansas. But that effort has severely hurt the organization's budget.  Kate Fields, the organization's chief operating officer, says the life-saving work will continue but it is seeking extra donations for the effort.  The Kansas City Star reports the contract with the city covers only preventive and basic medical care for 1,300 to 1,800 dogs and cats collected by animal control within the city's limits each year. But it does not cover extra care needed for about 140 severely sick, neglected, or injured animals. The Humane Society adds about $80,000 to its budget every year for that care.
