Pets For Life

We are very excited to announce our new program Pets For Life (PFL)!

PFL is a program designed to help keep the animals of Planeview in good homes, out of shelters, and when available, give their owners access to FREE pet resources!  We believe that by offering these resources and spreading knowledge on responsible pet ownership, we can help bridge the gap between systemic inequality and equality for all pets related areas.

This program is currently operating in the Planeview community only.  WAAL is also the only rescue in the State of Kansas to offer the PFL program as of yet!

With PFL program, Polo was able to get a makeover. What an incredible transformation, and he’ll be so much more comfortable this summer! A giant thank you to Emily’s Dog grooming – Wichita,KS for doing such a phenomenal job!

Poor Elmo! His mama, Tina, a PFL client, called because Elmo had made a poor kitty life choice. Elmo picked a fight with a MUCH bigger cat.

Tina knew that he needed vet care for the brewing abscess but needed some help making that happen so she called our PFL Specialist, Kylee and off to the amazing team at Southside Veterinary Clinic they went.
