Stuffed crusts, pizza muffins and vegan Stromboli, oh my! Make sure your bib is tucked in, all nice and snug-like – here’s this week in #nom!

Do you receive SNKC’s weekly newsletters? No? That’s okay, ’cause I do, and am happy to share! Spay & Neuter Kansas City now sends out a weekly update of its activities and accomplishments, as well as its current volunteer opportunities. Here’s a link to the most recent edition. I’ll include these in each week’s roundup, at least for as long as I remember to. Give me a friendly poke or holler if I forget, okay? Between its spay and neuter assistance and “pet” food pantry, SNKC does great work. Help them out if you can – pretty please with Daiya on top?

Over at Vegan Planet, Robin Robertson is giving away a copy of her latest book, Party Vegan, to one lucky reader. The deadline to enter is January 12, so don’t delay!

Hungry Vegan is also hosting a giveaway – enter this week to win a copy of Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s Appetite for Reduction. Pssst! There will be onion rings! Just sayin’…

Vegan Pizza Day is coming! Are you ready?

To get y’all in the mood – as if any help is needed in this department! as. if! – here’s Eco-Vegan Gal’s review of Pizza Fusion, one of the astounding 99 (that’s NINETY NINE, as in one less than ONE HUNDRED!) Californian vegan and/or vegan-friendly pizza places included in Vegan Pizza Day’s list.

Just for comparison: Missouri has four. FOUR! In just two cities! Kansas? ZERO. Bleh.

Midwest vegans, we have seriously got to up our game. I am embarrassed for us. SERIOUSLY.

SNKC’s 2010 Pledge & Winter Donation Drives

November 16th, 2010 10:24 am by Kelly

Spay & Neuter Kansas City recently announced the start of its second annual pledge drive. From now until February 24, 2011, participants can compete to win one of three prizes, with the top fundraiser receiving two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines and $300 worth of hotel accommodations. (The second and third prizes are a Magellan RoadMate 3065 and a $100 gift certificate to Petsmart, respectively.) The money raised will be used to spay and neuter Kansas City area dogs and cats in need – a core mission of SNKC.


In addition to the pledge drive, SNKC is also hosting a winter donation drive. Along with gently used dog houses, the group is in need of the following items: dog and cat food (e.g., to stock SNKC’s “pet” food pantry); straw; leashes and collars; dog and cat toys; and, of course, monetary donations, which will help to pay for spay/neuter procedures, gas for transportation, new dog houses, and veterinary care for sick and injured dogs and cats. You can find more information on donating and view SNKC’s full wish list here.

Crawl 4 Critters to Benefit SNKC this Saturday, August 28 in Westport!

August 24th, 2010 10:50 pm by Kelly

This Saturday, August 28, Spay & Neuter Kansas City will be holding two fundraising events in the Westport area:




* A family-friendly, “pre-crawl” event is scheduled from 10AM to 1PM in the Buzzard Beach parking lot. The first 50 attendees will receive a free “doggy bag,” and there will also be a “doggy wash” as well as an adoption fair. For the kiddos: face painting and bounce houses!

* The Pub Crawl takes place from 2PM to 5PM, with an official after hours party at Kelly’s bar. A $10 bracelet will score you drink specials at participating bars and restaurants, including:

Westport Cafe & Bar
Joe’s Pizza
Dark Horse
Riot Room

$20 advance tickets are available, which include a bracelet and a SNKC t-shirt!

For more details, email or call Tamara at SNKC: tamara [at] or 816-353-0940.

If you’d like to help out, SNKC is still in need of volunteers:

SNKC operates a number of essential programs in the KC area, including a free animal companion food pantry; low-cost spay and neuter programs; low-cost vaccinations and select veterinary services; and a variety of “pet” outreach services, including both education and veterinary and material assistance to low-income animal companion guardians.

If you’re unable to attend the crawl – or would like to do more to help – please consider making a donation to SNKC to ensure that it can continue providing these vital services! Money is awesome (and sorely needed), but donations of animal care items and office supplies are great, too. Check out SNCK’s wishlist for more.
