What would the Wayside Waifs’ campus be without a Sorority? The purpose of the Purr Gamma Bark Sorority is to provide a fun, exciting, and inclusive opportunity for professional and/or philanthropic women. The Sorority will help Wayside financially as well as build awareness for the organization’s mission.

Purr Gamma Bark’s commitment to Wayside Waifs is to support a program decided by the Executive Council each year. We will actively secure sponsors for our events so we can say with all conviction that ALL membership dues will go directly to the project/program.

There are three levels of Purr Gamma Bark membership and dues are renewed annually.

Be sure to join us for a Spring Fling shopping event at The Do Good Co on May 20, 5-7pm! Learn more here

The 2021 Program We Are Supporting

Wayside Waifs Behavior Program

Part of Wayside’s comprehensive circle of care includes behavior modification for animals who arrive at the shelter with behavior challenges, through not fault of their own. Wayside Waifs has specially trained volunteers and staff who work with shelter animals who illustrate signs of abuse, neglect, lack of socialization, or lack of structure and training. To see the transformation of animals who’ve arrived after years of mistreatment is extraordinary, and to see them get adopted into loving homes is inspiring. Wayside is grateful to the members of Purr Gamma Bark for supporting the Behavior Program.

For more information about taking on a leadership role within Purr Gamma Bark, please contact Megan Harding at 816-986-4419 or email.
