Take a Tour

Would you like a tour of Wayside Waifs? We’d love to show you around! 80% of our funding comes from animal lovers like you (the remaining 20% comes from pet adoption fees, retail store sales). We’d love to show you first-hand how your support makes a difference for the homeless animals.

We’ll give you a behind the scenes tour of the shelter touching upon a variety of topics including: pet admissions, seeing a spay or neuter surgery, learning about being a foster volunteer, petting lots of shelter pets (of course!), and visiting with staff and volunteers to answer all your questions.

Donors or those interested in becoming a donor please email Robin or call 816-986-4401
