Two decades ago, the concept of a No Kill community was little more than a dream. Today it is a reality in many cities and counties nationwide and the numbers continue to grow. And the first step is a decision, a commitment to reject kill-oriented ways of doing business. No Kill starts as an act of will.

No Kill Columbia – The Spay Neuter Project would like to thank all who gave during the end of the year CoMoGives campaign. We finished in 18th place with a total gift amount of $12,807!
We are grateful for your recognition of the importance of the work we do and for the confidence you have placed in us to achieve our mission; helping families keep their pets happy and healthy while reducing the unplanned and unwanted pet population. Together we will continue to make a difference!
Be inspired by the following video, a summary of KC Pet Pet Projects mission and how they have become one of the largest No Kill municipal shelters in the U.S.
As Co-founder and board member Brent Toellner states, "If you take the idea of shelter euthanasia off the table, it's amazing what type of ingenuity you will come up with to solve the problems that you have."
Please consider making a gift to the most proactive and successful solution to aide in reducing the pet population,

No Kill Columbia was established in 2011 to save pets like Dexter.
"My name is Dexter, a 4 year old Hound mixed with a Boxer. I had a family but they brought me to the shelter because they were moving. I primarily lived outdoors with a big place to call my own. I’m super friendly and a family adopted me quickly. Unfortunately, they weren’t really informed that I wanted to be outside. They crated me 9-10 hours a day while they were at work. It drove me so crazy; I tore up two crates in a week. My new family then returned me back to the shelter. I was marked as having behavior problems and was killed. I wish someone would have understood me!"
