Background Statement On June 5, 1940, the Jackson County Animal Betterment Association was incorporated under the laws of the State of Missouri. In 1944 our name changed to Wayside Waifs, Inc. The shelter was built in southeast Kansas City, Missouri, in 1945 and was enlarged several times. Wayside Waifs’ history is rich with stories of animals rescued from danger and hardship during times of disaster. During the 1951 flood, Wayside was on duty day and night. In May 1957, the agency participated in rescue work following the Ruskin Heights and Martin City tornado. In the spring of 1990, Wayside served as an evacuation center for animals from the Kansas City, Missouri, Animal Control facility when that shelter was threatened by rising floodwaters, and again in 1993 when floodwaters were rising, Wayside met the challenge and accepted hundreds of animals in need. In recent years, Wayside has participated actively in raids of illegally operated “puppy mills,” and it rescued animals from Joplin, Missouri, after the devastating tornado struck in May 2011. Since March 1999, Wayside Waifs has operated with a 32,700 square foot building with space to shelter up to 800 animals. In most years, 6,000 animals will find refuge at Wayside Waifs no-kill facility. Wayside also offers many other services including humane education for adults and children, an anti-violence humane education program for grades 3-5 entitled "No More Bullying!," a robust volunteer program, shelter for the pets of families in domestic violence shelters or suffering through other family crisis, a behavior helpline for frustrated pet owners, a five-acre off leash park, the country's largest pet cemetery and more. Wayside Waifs is a non-profit organization. It is not supported by local, state or federal funds, nor does it receive financial support from any national humane organizations. Its support comes primarily from general donations, memberships, bequests, the pet cemetery, adoptions, and gifts from foundations, businesses and civic organizations.
Impact Statement
2016 Accomplishments:
  • Adopted 5,122 animals into forever, loving homes

  • 1,605 volunteers donated 111,114 hours of service
  • 3,018 animals were spayed or neutered

2017 Goals:
  • Adopt 4,750 animals into forever, loving homes
  • Decrease average Length of Stay for animals in the shelter to 17 days
  • Reach 9,000 Kansas City area school children through Humane Educational Programming
  • Implement "Wayside's Way" adoption practices/policies

Needs Statement
Charitable giving accounts for 80 percent of our budget. Broadening our base of support is our greatest need. Adoption fees only cover a small portion of the investment we make in each shelter animal.

We generally serve the greater Kansas City metropolitan area for our adoption services and Humane Education programs. We partner with 60 shelters and rescue groups in Kansas City and beyond, with transfer partners in Louisiana and Texas. And our rescue team is available to help nationwide. They helped in New York after Hurricane Sandy and an ASPCA operation in Florida.  In 2017 they deployed to assist after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement Wayside Waifs is a leading animal welfare agency for the Kansas City metropolitan area and has a 73 year history of partnering pets and community for life. More than 6,000 animals are rescued, sheltered, healed, rehabilitated and adopted annually through the collective work of 75 passionate employees and more than 1,300 dedicated volunteers on our 50 acre campus located in south Kansas City, Missouri. We provide a full circle of care to dogs, cats and small mammals that find their way to our shelter through transfers from over-crowded shelters, found as a stray on the streets of our municipal partners and through the often difficult choice to surrender a loved pet by the pet’s owner.
 
We have made some important investments of facilities and staff within the last few years to better meet the ever-growing challenges of pet abandonment, cruelty, overpopulation and neglect. Our new 11,000 square foot veterinary hospital provides greatly expanded and improved space for our team of two full-time veterinarians and one part-time veterinarian. Their primary focus is to care for the high volumes of animals that enter our facility by providing all the necessary vaccinations, spaying and neutering procedures and managing the health of both populations and individual animals within our shelter. The psychological needs of all the animals are overseen by our Behavioral Management team including the large number of primary care staff and volunteers who assist on various special teams to help individual animals through their behavioral issues.
 
Our Humane Education programs are increasingly important tools to inspire and inform animal lovers of all ages about our responsibilities to all the pets we love everywhere in our community. One program specifically, No More Bullying!, is a compelling week-long program for students in grades 3 through 5 to demonstrate compassion to animals and therefor reduce the incidents of bullying behavior of the students when they grow older. Each year 2,335 students annually participate in the No More Bullying! program locally and we are excited to now provide this curriculum at a national level.
 
I encourage you to explore our agency’s website (www.waysidewaifs.org) and social media pages to learn more about the wide spectrum of programs and services we provide to both pets and people throughout our community. Wayside Waifs will continue to be a resource to shelter management professionals, veterinarians and every person who cherishes the bond between people and animals. We simply cannot accomplish our ambitious mission without the generosity of philanthropically minded individuals, families and corporations within our community who recognize that all of our lives are made better through the companionship of animals.

Programs
Description Wayside Waifs' people-friendly, innovative adoption program is designed to facilitate the best match possible between available shelter animals and their potential adopters. Our knowledgeable adoption counselors match pets with the lifestyles and preferences of adopting families. Placing adoptable pets in loving homes with responsible guardians is Wayside Waifs' primary goal. In addition to our adoptions counselors, Wayside Waifs has a complete staff of behavior specialists for dogs and cats that are available for consultation.
Program Budget $513,599.00
Category Animal-Related, General/Other Animal Ownership
Population Served Families, General/Unspecified,
Short-Term Success

We placed 5122 homeless animals into new, loving homes in 2016

Long-Term Success

To educate the public, staff and volunteers about all shelter animal needs and that people will be healthier and happier as a result of owning a pet.

Program Success Monitored By

We monitor customer satisfaction of our adopting families. Post adoption phone calls are made to adopters as well as an on line survey sent to adopters asking them about their experience. We monitor the number of animals that are placed for adoption and the percentage returned to the shelter due to a "mismatch."

Examples of Program Success

96% of customers indicated they would recommend Wayside Waifs for adoption of an animal to others in 2016. In 2016, we placed 5,122 animals into loving, permanent homes.

Description Wayside Waifs comes to the rescue when area families are experiencing crisis through domestic violence, natural disaster, fire or other causes that make caring for family pets an issue. Families are referred by area social service agencies when they require special support and care for beloved pets.
Program Budget $80,000.00
Category Animal-Related, General/Other Animal Protection & Welfare
Population Served Victims, Homeless,
Short-Term Success Families in crisis referred by the Red Cross or area domestic violence shelters who need temporary shelter for their pets can bring them to Wayside for two weeks. The pets will be held in an area not accessible to the public.
Long-Term Success Those who have been victimized by others or by fire or other family tragedies are not forced to part with their beloved pets as they pull their lives back together.
Program Success Monitored By Wayside staff will work with the families and other social service agencies to determine the best possible outcome for their pet.
Examples of Program Success When domestic violence occurs, often women are afraid to leave their abuser due to threats against their family pet. As most Kansas City area domestic violence shelters do not have the necessary space to house pets, Wayside Waifs is often the only link between these women and their children living a life free of abuse.
Description

One of Wayside Waifs' goals is to educate the public, particularly children, about the humane treatment of pets. Studies show there is a strong relationship between a child's awareness of the proper way to treat animals and their ability as an adult to relate humanely not only to animals but to society as a whole. A wide variety of quality programs are delivered to more than 12,000 participants each year. These programs are done both onsite and throughout the community. The violence prevention curriculum, No More Bullying!, is the cornerstone of our Humane Education program. No More Bullying! is an in-school program that teaches 3rd-5th grade students the importance of practicing compassion, self-control, responsibility and integrity. All programs are offered free of charge and are supported entirely by private grants and donations.

Program Budget $162,188.00

Short-Term Success

Humane Education has been part of Wayside Waifs’ missions since its inception. About 300 Schools and other community institutions contact Wayside Waifs yearly to schedule programming. Our No More Bullying! curriculum has been featured as an effective program for anti-bullying education in USA Today, Animal Sheltering magazine, KC Parent Magazine, Family Circle, and more than 72 other media outlets around the country.

Long-Term Success

It is our goal to teach responsible pet ownership, educate the community on animal welfare concerns, and help children grow into kind and contributing members of society. Our humane educators, staff and volunteers, and their companion animals present curriculum lessons that teach children about caring for a pet, how to safely greet a dog, and help students practice compassion, self-control, responsibility and integrity.

Program Success Monitored By

Information is collected to help us identify where we impact our community and the number of people who use our programming yearly. We log schools/institutions who schedule our programming, the number of participants – both children and adults – who have benefited, and the No More Bullying! curriculum uses pre and post testing to see how effective the sessions are in helping students grasp the core concepts.

Examples of Program Success

Wayside Waifs is recognized throughout the country for their exceptional and well developed programming. The No More Bullying! violence prevention curriculum is set for nationwide distribution next year, and Wayside Waifs is regularly contacted for information about how to bring this nontraditional approach to bullying prevention to other communities. Locally, Wayside Waifs has become the premiere partner for the Kansas City girl scouts and the only place recommended to troops who are looking to complete their Animal Badge. Adult tours and programming continued to match short term shelter needs with community resources. Over 68 corporate, college and other adult groups effectively supported shelter needs in 2016.

Description

Wayside Waifs has been helping families for generations with compassionate aftercare for cherished family pets. The staff at Wayside Waifs truly understands the pain of losing a family pet. We are here to support you during this time of sorrow and help make final arrangements for your pet. Unlike most pet cemeteries, all revenue from Wayside Waifs’ Pet Memorial Services goes to help the shelter provide loving care for its current residents until permanent homes can be found. We hope the clients we serve will find comfort in knowing that your pet, even in death, is helping another animal.

Short-Term Success

Our Veterinarian Partner program which supports many local veterinarian clinics and their need for wholesale cremation services have steadily increased by 20%. As part of our enhanced marketing program, Pet Memorial Services is offering more retail products for pet owners to memorialize their deceased pet’s memory. As part of our commitment to our customers, Pet Memorial Services maintained a customer satisfaction rating greater than 99% with that percentage of people indicating they would refer others for Wayside Waifs' Pet Memorial Services and all calls for service were responded to within 24 hours.

Long-Term Success

People in the Greater Kansas City Area will have knowledge of accessible and compassionate aftercare for cherished family pets at Wayside Waifs Pet Memorial Park. The Pet Memorial Services program generates excess revenue which can be used to support non-revenue generating shelter services.

Wayside Waifs Pet Memorial Services is one of Kansas City’s largest end of life provider for companion pet burial, cremation and memorialization, services and all revenue generated supports the mission of Wayside Waifs caring for and providing adoption services.

Program Success Monitored By

Wayside monitors customer satisfaction of all families receiving pet cemetery services. Pet Memorial Services experienced enhanced revenues from the many services offered to the public and veterinarian community. With progressive staff training and a firm commitment to our customer’s Pet Memorial Services continues to boast a 100% customer satisfaction rate. Monetary goals are monitored by monthly financial statements.

Examples of Program Success

The following are examples of the types of comments we receive after a client experiences the services and staff at Pet Memorial Services.

“Thank you so much for making such a difficult time easier on my family. We now have six pets buried at Wayside Waifs. Each time we used the services, the staff was wonderful. They do a great job in keeping the cemetery grounds looking great. I’m very thankful that we have the cemetery available to us and thankful for the wonderful group that keeps it running.”

Wayside Waifs received a phone call from a woman who has buried several of her pets at Wayside Waifs. She had already been a monthly donor to Wayside Waifs, but after her most recent experience with Pet memorial Services, she was so impressed with the kind and caring high level of service that she received, she wanted to increase the amount of the monthly donation she was currently making to Wayside Waifs.

Description In 2012 Wayside Waifs expanded our life-saving programs to include a 12-person FEMA trained Rescue and Response Team. The Rescue and Response Team assists with local and national rescue efforts resulting from natural disasters, hoarding situations, and puppy mill raids.
Program Budget $141,755.00
Category Animal-Related, General/Other Animal Protection & Welfare
Population Served Families, ,
Short-Term Success

In 2016 we transferred in 2445 animals from shelters locally and across the country. We took in 33 animals from our national organizations including ASPCA, HSUS and Animal Rescue Corp. These animals were from hoarding situations, puppy mills and dog fighting raids. We assisted the ASPCA with the initial raid last winter of a sanctuary that was being shut down by the state of North Carolina. This raid involved over 650 animals, including livestock.

Long-Term Success

That no adoptable animals will ever be euthanized locally or from areas where we are capable of rescuing and transporting them to Wayside Waifs.

Program Success Monitored By

We use a web-based system to record every animal that enters and leaves Wayside.

Examples of Program Success

2445 animals were transferred from other shelters and rescue in 2016. So far, 1575 have been transferred this year.

2017 has been a busy year for our rescue program with three hurricanes and numerous hoarding cases.  Our rescue truck was deployed twice for Hurricane Harvey; first to Louisiana to rescue animals from a shelter before it got flooded; then to Houston to rescue animals found after the Hurricane in a hoarding situation.  Twice we sent teams of four staff and volunteers to assist the ASPCA at shelters set up to care for animals in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
CEO Comments Wayside Waifs is transforming its 50-acre campus into a regional resource for animals and their owners and building a national reputation for best practices and a trained response team that can mobilize at a moment's notice to assist other organizations in time of disaster. We are proud of the reputation we have built over the years as the place where animal have the best chance of survival and finding a forever home.

Collaborations
Wayside Waifs collaborates with animal welfare organizations both locally, regionally, and nationally. In recent years, Wayside has worked directly with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to aid in the rescue of animals from illegally run "puppy mills" and from many disasters affecting the Midwest, including the devastating tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri, in May 2011, and Wayside has worked with the Humane Society of the United States. Locally, Wayside Waifs collaborates with Spay and Neuter Kansas City, Great Plains SPCA, and Kansas City Pet Project, which often includes the transfer of animals from those facilities to Wayside Waifs. In addition, Wayside organizes animal transfers from approximately 60 different regional (and beyond) animal shelters when their animals have “run out of time or space.” Through the generosity of our supporters, Wayside Waifs is able to be a no kill shelter – keeping animals until their forever family is found and they are adopted.
 
August 11 through 13, 2017, the Kansas City MegaMatch will be held by Wayside Waifs, Great Plains SPCA, and Kansas City Pet Project.  This will involve planning meetings, jointly applying for sponsorship funds, and producing joint promotional materials and advertising, as well as joint social media efforts.
