Wayside Waifs' mission is to prepare pets and people for the bond of their lives. Wayside accomplishes their mission by protecting and caring for the animals under their watch; by reaching out the community for love and support; and by teaching others about the profound joy that pets bring to our lives.
Established in 1944, Wayside is located in south Kansas City, Missouri, on a beautiful, tree-filled 50-acre campus. The no kill animal shelter typically serves 6,000 animals annually. Services include: pet adoptions, volunteering, foster care, animal rescue and response, humane education, pet memorial services, a 5-acre off leash dog park, public dog training classes, and more.
Wayside is a private, 501c3 charitable organization.
